Luke Jackson is one of the most exciting young singer-songwriters in the UK. Blending soul, blues, americana and folk, Luke's live performances are not to be missed. Two things that immediately stands out are his strong, mature vocal and the high quality of his songwriting. In 2013 Luke was nominated in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards for both the 'Horizon Award' for Best Emerging Talent and The Young Folk Category.  With a bold, distinctive voice and a sweet, percussive guitar style, Luke is a confident and captivating live performer. He was also winner of FATEA’s “Male Artist of the Year 2014”

Over the past few years he has steadily been developing a reputation for himself in the Folk & Roots circuits either through his solo shows, many festival appearances or when opening for such luminaries as Show ofHands, Steve Knightley, Martyn Joseph, Karine Polwart, Oysterband, Paul Brady, Glen Tilbrook, Sarah Jarosz and Lucy Ward

He has also completed several tours of Scotland, with the last 2 years including playing 2 sold out nights at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. He toured in Belgium, The Netherlands and Germany at the end of 2015, and he has started 2016 with a series of joint headline shows with Grammy Award winner Amy Wadge followed by his first visit to the USA to play at the International Folk Alliance conference in Kansas.

His debut album ‘More Than Boys’, produced by the acclaimed Welsh Singer-Songwriter Martyn Joseph, was released in 2012 to great reviews, as was the follow up ‘Fumes and Faith’ in early 2014.  In 2015 he released a 7 track EP with his trio, ‘This Family Tree’, which was described in a 5 star Maverick review as ”Two words. Bloody brilliant” and it further reflects his development as both a writer and performer.

Luke is an ever present in the live music scene, gigging relentlessly all over, and he remains a prolific songwriter aiming to release his third full length album due in the Autumn this year.

Just in case you are wondering the picture on the Spotify link below is another Luke Jackson, but the music in the top ten tracks is from Luke.
