Luke Leighfield Trasmission Music Group presents: Luke Leighfield The Islington, London Luke Leighfield has been a prolific performer and recording artist since 2005. In the past ten years hes played 750 shows in Europe, Russia, Canada, the USA, China, Japan and South Sudan. He started his own record label, Got Got Need Rechords, through which hes self-released four albums and two EPs. (Hes also released greatest hits albums in Japan and China.) Its no surprise, then, that hes been dubbed both the hardest working man in indie and the UKs biggest underground pop star.In March 2015, Luke will release his fifth full-length: V. A successful crowd-funding campaign on Kickstarter enabled him to make the record in the USA with producer Jim Wirt (Jacks Mannequin, Incubus, Fiona Apple). The result: a record made for radio. V is wholly English but its expansive rock soundscapes evoke the feeling of racing along an American highway, wind ripping through ones hair. The drums are driving and confident, the guitar licks insistent and inventive, and Lukes vocal delivery is impassioned and honest. Strings from the world-renowned Cleveland Symphony give songs like First Love an orchestral quality, while peppy brass on Fool for Love brings the song to a rousing finish.Luke has shared stages with artists like Fun., Frank Turner, William Fitzsimmons and Joshua Radin, and recorded live sessions for Radio 1 and Xfm in the UK. Hes played keys for a number of other bands, including The 1975 and Dry the River. Lukes music has been used on Sky Sports (Football First), Channel 4 (Made in Chelsea) and BBC 3 (Coming of Age).http://lukeleighfield.comForthcoming Dates: (on sale Friday)Friday 1st May The Islington, London
