Luke is a dirt farmer.
Though he has come and gone from the University of Guelph, World Vision in Honduras Central America and now has a wife, Heidi and daughters Abbie and Annalee and two sons Caleb and William, he still finds that dirt under his nails. Oh, except for one thing. When he moved into his family’s 125-year-old red brick farm house the renters left all their possessions; including 6 old mattresses perfect for soundproofing. With that, the mystery of home music recording began.
Armed with a few friends and a 1/8inch headphone cable Luke put together his first CD, My Song and My Salvation. What else could that next project be but a Greatest Hits album? Yes, but he has since burned the mattresses and recorded this 5 song EP with The BlueBox Studios in Barrie, Ontario. The disc is called Change the World. All 5 songs made it to Christian radio in Canada with the title track going to 8 on the charts in Canada.
Then less than a year later he recorded his first full-length studio album “Over The Sun” at AME Studios in Kitchener ON. It was released June 28 2008 and has received airplay across Canada with “Rain From Heaven”, “How Great Are You Lord” and “Stand”. The project was nominated “Rock Album of the Year 2008” at the CGMA Covenant Awards.
In June 2014 he released his next full-length all-original album “Something Real”. He has been gigin’ around Central Ontario promoting his radio singles and sharing God’s story in his life.
A few nominations later, and he is working closely with Scott Jackson and LIFE 100.3 to produce Canadian music including “Silent Night” and the recently released “Bridges” single. Coming out later in the summer of 2017 will be “Come and See”, the second release this year.
