Born in Essex, 22 year old Luke Burr found his love for music through listening to his father’s old soul records. At just five years old and Inspired by the incredible voices of people like Stevie Wonder, Luther Vandross and George Benson, Luke started singing and playing piano. His flair for performing was triggered at fifteen, when he booked his first few gigs at some local pubs (and a few dives!), word started to spread of this ‘local teenager with the voice beyond his years’, this prompted more and more people to start turning up to every show. After seeing what songs would resonate with the people of Hornchurch, Luke started to write his own music, all while achieving top grades in his class and much to the dismay of his teachers Luke decided to skip a University education to concentrate solely on his music career.
