` Luke Ferre

Luke Ferre is a singer-songwriter from Lovedean, a tiny village in the south of England. Luke was given a guitar aged 9 by his parents, who wanted to get him away from the TV. So he started learning to sing and write songs, and, after winning a local talent show, bought his own TV.

Luke began busking and regularly gigging at 13. He was often too young to legally be in the venues he was playing in, so he’d get hidden in attics and cellars, escorted to and from the stage by doormen, then kicked out as soon as his set finished. Since then Luke has been featured on BBC Introducing, played at festivals such as Isle of Wight, Blissfields and Beach Break Live, and played alongside the likes of Gabrielle Aplin, The Holloways, Hudson Taylor and Billy Lockett, as well as headlining a small run of packed shows in Germany last year. A highlight would be supporting Slade in 2009, where Luke accidently walked in on guitarist Dave Hill getting changed. He wears white briefs.

Luke has recently finished his new EP, titled “Bloodshot”. It was produced by The Kooks & Harry Styles collaborator, Sam McCarthy, and mastered by Samuel James Higginbotham.
