Michael Lukes is a singer / songwriter born in England who lives between London and Rome. Exposed at an early age to various sounds mainly from the UK scene, he began to cultivate his interest in music, performing in several bands.
In 2014 Michael Lukes collaborated with Neroloz, recording a cover of the hit song Titanium, by the well-known disc jockey David Guetta. After many years of performing in cover bands, he embarked on a solo career in 2017, releasing a revisited version of ‘The Sound of Silence’ with which he won 2 awards for Original Interpretation and Arrangement.
In 2018 he performed live in several music festivals, recorded a version of Tom Walker’s ‘Leave a Light on’ and began composing his own original songs. On May 24th, 2019 he released his debut EP titled “I AM’, inspired by his multi-cultural background and experiences, with 4 original songs and 1 bonus track. “I AM” got good exposure and even some airplays from BBC6 and BBC Introducing plus Radio RAI in Italy.
After the release of the EP he started a UK tour called “I AM TOUR” with over 15 dates mainly in London.
Due to Covid 19 the tour was suspended, but will resume with new dates hopefully at the end of summer ’20. Right now Michael is working on new songs, and his songwriting style is developing into a more minimal and bare indie folk, inspired by bands like The Lumineers and classic British Ballads.
