Music has been a precious healer of Luke’s heart ever since he remembers breaking out the moves to Jimmy Cliff reggae beats as a young child. He received his first guitar at 8 years of age, and took lessons for a short time without much progress. Four years later Luke began an intense 3 year period of guitar lessons, honing his craft as an understudy to Mike Page, a well respected guitarist and songwriter in Prince Edward Island. At 15 years of age Luke began writing songs of his own. Since then his technique has truly blossomed.

He is now a well-rounded and experienced singer and musician, proficient with guitar, bass, banjo and harmonica. HIs gift for majestic finger picking complements his melodic and lilting vocals to create a truly magical listening experience. He has performed at numerous open mics and live venues over the years, and particularly enjoys sharing the gift of live music in seniors homes to help the transition to dependance become more tolerable for the aging.

Luke’s deep love of music inspires and informs his professional massage therapy practice and larger life in general. In order to mobilize the healing capacity of music, Luke has recently launched his musical endeavours under the banner Songbird Music. ┬áTo be notified of Luke’s upcoming shows or if you would like to book a house concert or live show for a seniors’ residence, contact Luke at info@songbirdmusic.ca
