Lead Vocals/ Harmonies/ Rhythm Guitar
Born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Luke has been playing music from a very early age. He started his career as a founding member of the Halifax indie rock band Sleep to Dream; released a music video for their single “Souvenir” off the first full length album Breaking the Silence. The group toured across Canada opening for such acts as Gordie Johnson, Tom Cochrane, Matt Mays, The Trews and many more.
Luke then went on to release a solo acoustic album and continues to play and write new music. Luke is the latest member of Merimac, joining mid 2013, and is looking forward to continuing the party through the Maritimes, Canada & U.S.
A little known fact is that NASA has studied Luke’s brain to see what makes it tick as he doesn’t require sleep. Often found in a tent, Luke chants softly while carving beautiful wooden Russian dolls which he donates to local churches – to repent from his wicket weekends.
