We’re excited to be working with Luke Daniels for the first time.

Luke-Daniels-Castle-Hotel-Manchester

Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Luke Daniels is proud to announce the release of his new album What’s Here, What’s Gone. Immaculate acoustic guitar playing and insightful, honest lyrics exploring love, life, doubt and faith and the idea that happiness and hope spring from what we have in common, rather than what we can acquire as individuals.

Daniels is one of the UK’s most gifted and inventive musicians and, having found a new voice as a song-writer and folk vigilante, is excited to be taking his contemporary acoustic folk in a new direction. What’s Here, What’s Gone is an album full of memorable and uplifting melodies, blending folk, blues and gospel alongside Luke’s outstanding, warm, honey-coated, yet attention-grabbing vocals.

Over the course of a twenty-year career, Daniels has already earned his place on the UK folk scene as a virtuoso melodeon player with the likes of Riverdance, De Dannan and Ian Anderson. While performing with his own band at the London Jazz Festival, the Royal Festival Hall and festivals in the UK and internationally. Luke also worked alongside Howard Shore and the London Philharmonic Orchestra as a soloist on the movie soundtracks for Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, and is currently a regular member of the Cara Dillon Band.
