Release: “Country Looks Good to Me” – Album
From rich, raspy vocals and roaring guitar solos to acoustic deep cuts and piano ballads, Luke Flear is classic country with a modern unique twist. Born in Leeds, England and raised surrounded by his family’s love for music, Luke picked up the drumsticks before he could even talk, and countless instruments followed until he could take his music to the stage. Since 15 years old, Luke has been consistently performing across Europe as a solo artist, and recently made his move into the UK Country Music Scene. Through the purity in his songwriting, his instrumental virtuosity and his natural love for the stage, Flear is among many others bound to change the UK’s relationship with the genre. Every instrument you hear on record is played by the 20 year old himself, with Luke’s debut album exploring countless themes of ambition, addiction, love and hate in true Americana style. Pen in hand and a stage to take to, Luke is the newest face to take on the challenge of conquering country music in the UK.
“My first endeavour into country music, and my first official album release.”
Luke is preparing to release his brand-new album in August, and features the title track “Looks Country To Me”. Wanting to introduce himself to the genre through his creativity, the song “acknowledges my English roots and explores finding country music and identifying with it.” The chorus aims to address those who claim no authenticity from an English written country song when the homage to the genre is paid through the music:
“I’m not saying that you gotta agree but it sure as hell looks country to me”
