London-born singer-songwriter Luke Sital-Singh has enjoyed comparisons to artists such as Bon Iver, Jeff Buckley, and Damian Rice among others. The youngest of three musical brothers, he was a childhood violinist and then an adolescent guitarist, self-releasing EPs and gigging on the London open mic scene after graduating from BIMM College in Brighton. His fan base has continued to grow as a wide range of audiences resonate with his honest songwriting. His second album Time Is A Riddle will be released on Raygun Records / Red Essential in May 2017.
Wrap your ears around his sound here:
Luke crafted every element of new album with artisan focus, capturing it live with a group of musicians local to the studio in Donegal where it was made. His wife Hannah Cousins made the cover artwork from a lino press and the video for lead single Killing Me, written for the singer’s grandmother, is cut from digitised cine films shot by Cousins’ late grandfather in the 70s. A lovely sense of handmade dedication permeates the record, as befits his wistful, intimate songs.
