Luke is on the road in support of his latest EP I Just Don’t Deserve To Be Loved, released in April through Scylla Records, inspired by the passing of his mother. Luke explains; “I’m often told that my songs have inspired someone on their path and it’s a fantastic feeling knowing that I’ve helped them in some way.
“The new EP is about losing someone, but also it’s much deeper than that. It’s a tough record, filled with guilt and how I handled my mental health. When my mum died, I stayed away for a while. There’s no set way to deal with grief.
“I want to keep spreading the message of positive mental health attitudes through my music and standing against any form of prejudice. It’s very important to me and something that I’m extremely vocal about.”
