Singer songwriter Luke Pilgrim has become one of the most watched, young artists to emerge out of Atlanta in years. Growing up in Cleveland, a small town in the mountains of North Georgia, and influenced by a blend of country and southern rock, Pilgrim’s love for music began at a very early age. Pilgrim began sitting in with bands at clubs as an eleven year old kid, and left older musicians in awe as he ripped out lead guitar riffs from music greats Stevie Ray Vaughn, Eric Clapton, and Tom Petty, to name a few. While constantly striving to perfect his musicianship, Pilgrim also began honing his songwriting and singing skills. By the age of fifteen, he had completed writing, recording, and producing his first full-length album with the band Last November. Pilgrim toured extensively with Last November for the better part of a decade. (Keep in mind the band was formed in high school.)
In late 2010, Pilgrim decided to get back to his country roots, heading to the legendary Southern Tracks Studios in Atlanta to record his first album under his birth name, working alongside lifelong friend & mentor Rodney Mills (Lynyrd Skynyrd, 38 Special, ARS). Pilgrim shares; "I have always loved country music. It’s been a big part of my life growing up in the hills of North Georgia. The music on this album is perfect for storyteller lyrics, which always interested me the most about songwriting. If I can write something that really speaks to someone and affects their life, then that is what this is all about." Molding the song around the lyrics, Pilgrim brings real emotions to the table that listeners of all ages can identify with.
