Luke Jackson Trio
Every so often a new voice emerges, one so stunning that it knocks you sideways. Jackson has been compared to a young Richard Thompson and for once these are not empty words - Acoustic Magazine
Luke is a Singer/Songwriter from Canterbury, Kent. With a bold, distinctive voice and a sweet, percussive guitar style, Luke is a confident and captivating live performer. In 2013 he was nominated in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards for both the Horizon Award for Best Emerging Talent and The Young Folk Category. He was also winner of Fatea’s “Male Artist of the Year” in 2014 and again in 2016.
An ever present in the live music scene, gigging relentlessly all over the UK and Europe, he has steadily been developing a reputation through his solo shows, festival appearances and as an opening act for such luminaries as Show of Hands, Steve Knightley, Martyn Joseph, Seth Lakeman, Karine Polwart, Oysterband, Paul Brady, Glen Tilbrook, Sarah Jarosz and Lucy Ward. As well as playing solo, Luke performs as a trio with drummer Connor Downs and bassist Andy Sharps, or as a duo with either one of them. At the beginning of 2017 he undertook his third series of joint headline shows with Grammy Award winner Amy Wadge, followed by a return to the USA for 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 one 5 star review as, ”Two words. Bloody brilliant” and it further reflected his development as both a writer and performer. November 2016 saw the release of Luke’s 3rd full studio album, “Tall Tales and Rumours” to universal critical acclaim, which Maverick, in a 5 star review, described as “a brilliant, thoughtful album – Jackson shows talent beyond his years”.
