The new single 'Made of Love' from the debut album ‘Outside In’
Released 9th July 2012 on Strongwire Records
In advance of his forthcoming debut album, Luke White releases the single ‘Made Of Love’. Already featured on Q Radio’s ‘New To Q’ show, the jagged guitars, ethereal chorus and layered production of ‘Made Of Love’ mark Luke White out as an exceptionally talented young singer-songwriter.
Following on from the well-received EP ‘The Performing Man’, Luke White’s debut album ‘Outside In’ is a mature, melodic record. A songwriter with an innate gift for finding universal truths in seemingly specific, out-of-the-ordinary phrases and everyday occurrences, Luke White is an incredibly gifted and talented singer, musician and producer. ‘Outside In’ is the result of a long period of introspection and soul-searching, each song providing intimate snapshots of life presented in new and original ways.
Writing and performing on both guitar and keys, ‘Outside In’ is wholly one artist’s musical vision. Taking on production duties himself, Luke notes “I don’t see (the production process) as separate from writing or recording at all … producing the album myself just seemed to make sense as the songs were being written.” The result is a deeply rewarding, richly engrossing debut album.
Luke’s debut EP ‘The Performing Man’ was released in 2011 and was featured on BBC Introducing, drawing great praise from presenter Phil Jackson who said “the overwhelming impression you're left with is the hook and the voice." Other praise for the EP came from the likes of The Evans Review, who noted it “sounds breathtakingly good,” and Fake DIY who called it “anthemic piano-driven pop.” Radio has supported Luke with Amazing’s Jim Gellatly giving airplay to ‘She’s A Dancer’ and Affinity Radio naming his EP Record of the Week.
