about

In November 2018, Cambridge based singer-songwriter Luke James Williams released his debut EP 'Drove'. The first single 'Rabbit Hole' has received airplay on BBC6 Music, Amazing Radio and BBC Introducing whilst other cuts from the EP have been featured and played by Folk Radio UK and Hype Machine. Second single ‘Still In Bed’ has received huge support from BBC6 Music DJ Tom Robinson who recently chose it as his 6Music Recommends track which then saw it played by Tom Ravenscroft, Lauren Laverne and Steve Lamacq. Luke has received rave reviews for his engaging live performances and has supported artists such as Stu Larsen, The Little Unsaid and Megson. Broadly categorised as alt.folk and drawing influences from the likes of Sufjan Stevens and PJ Harvey, Williams paints pictures with words and sings them in his own distinctly British voice.

"The songwriting and the vocal delivery are just so raw, heartfelt and beautiful that I find it irresistible" Tom Robinson, BBC6 Music

"A perfect slice of alt.folk pop" Charlie Ashcroft - Amazing Radio

"Really beautiful melodies and instrumentations which bring you back to listen time and time again" Angry Baby Blog
