"Luke Escombe is a rock-soul singer, raconteur, blistering blues guitarist, comedian and songwriter - and is very good at them all" (Sydney Morning Herald)
All-time Acoustic Picnic favourite Luke Escombe returns after a long absence with a brand new collection of his uniquely lyrical, frequently hilarious and always entertaining songs.
Starting his musical journey in London as a singer and blues guitarist, Luke has overcome a series of challenges in his life through his ability to transform and reinvent himself as an artist. In 2011 he took an acclaimed musical comedy show called Chronic to the Edinburgh Fringe, opening a door into an exciting new life as a globe-trotting comedian and keynote speaker. A few years later, after the birth of his son Harry, Luke created his most successful venture to date: an award-winning children's band called The Vegetable Plot, with whom he recently signed with ABC Music.
Luke has performed on numerous occasions at the Sydney Opera House - with whom he now works as a teaching artist, writing songs with schoolkids in Southwest Sydney - and at City Recital Hall, Melbourne Arts Centre and at major events like The National Folk Festival, Sydney Fest and Splendour in the Grass. He was described by John Shand in the Sydney Morning Herald as "funny and brave, a showman and an artist, a brilliantly engaging lyricist, expert tunesmith, fine guitarist and exceptional singer" and is the ever so exceedingly humble owner of "Sydney's sexiest man voice", a title he scooped in a phone poll on a popular radio station.
In his new songs, Luke combines his sharp wit and rootsy rhythm guitar style with an insightful and deeply personal journey into the past, present, and future. Luke Escombe solo gigs are rare events these days. Don't miss this one!
