Luke Jackson is a young Roots Singer/Songwriter from Canterbury, Kent, who in 2013 was nominated in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards for both the Horizon Award for Best Emerging Talent and The Young Folk Category. With a bold, distinctive voice and a sweet, percussive guitar style, Luke is a confident and captivating live performer.
Over the past few years he has steadily been developing a reputation for himself in the Folk & Roots circuits either through his solo shows, many festival appearances or when opening for such luminaries as Show of Hands, Steve Knightley, Martyn Joseph, Karine Polwart, Oysterband, Paul Brady, Glen Tilbrook, Sarah Jarosz and Lucy Ward
He has also completed two short tours of Scotland, which this year included playing at both the highly regarded Belladrum and Edinburgh Fringe Festivals.
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. This record was co-produced by Luke with Cardiff based American producer Mason Neely and further reflects his development as both a writer and performer.
