Celebrating Rockwood Music Hall’s 15-Year Anniversary!
Luke Buck was formed in the 80s in the backwoods of eastern Pennsylvania - thanks Mom and Dad. Since then, a lot has changed. What started out as all rattly percussion, nursery rhymes, and made up words to Somewhere Over The Rainbow slowly became full sentences and actual thoughts. And then the 90s happened, of which Luke has never quite been able to escape. Thank God it's almost cool again!
His style has been described as "Counting Crows meets Radiohead at a bar where Damien Rice is serving up double whiskeys while listening to a time-traveling mid-90s Weezer cover Ben Folds Five songs" - whatever that means.
His first EP Dark Matter came out of nowhere in 2016 after getting his heart broken by his long-term girlfriend. The songs were Luke's way to make it all make sense, and give a point to the otherwise pointless loss, anger, and loneliness - you know, the way we all feel on Sunday nights after Sunday night TV is finished and there's work tomorrow. But, like, way more.
After that depucelating album, he released 3 more EPs and a single Winter in 2017 and was featured on the Official Spotify playlist Kaffeehaus Musik garnering hundreds of thousands of combined streams.
Luke's latest singles Mistakes (Live) and Sleep (Live) are from the upcoming EP "Live to Tape at Degraw Sound: the MISTAKES session" which will be released in on 8/30.
He lives in New York with his two dogs and is supposedly working on his first full LP, slated for early 2020!
