Young Man, Old Soul
Luke has been singing as long as anyone can remember. He plays guitar, fiddle, bass and mandolin with an old country soul. Influences like Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, and Buck Owens have helped shaped his traditional country sound. But also with an ear for the newer sounds of Sturgill Simpson, Tyler Childers, and of course Chris Stapleton.
At 18, Luke has quite a list of accomplishments, the latest being releasing his second CD, What If I Tried, with 11 original songs about growing up. From the first track "That Drive" about getting his drivers license, to the title track "What If I Tried", a song about him trying to explain to his dad, I hear you, I'm trying. Off stage you’ll find a mild mannered and sometimes shy young man. Onstage, however, he’ll take you back to a time when the world moved a little slower and music was enjoyed on a radio.
Luke has been gifted to have been invited to open for, or be on stage with, Shenandoah, Little Texas, Steep Canyon Rangers, and Mac Arnold. An invitation to open for Marshall Tucker was cancelled last year, but Luke hopes for a re-schedule.
You can find Luke Deuce playing all over the upstate of the Carolinas and Georgia. Check out his schedule and come and listen in person, or start streaming What If I Tried today! Or enjoying streaming his first CD The Hand I Was Dealt, a collection of covers from Stapleton to The Hag!
