“The most magnificent and enigmatic of performers!” (Spotlight Magazine)
Here at SRP we’re delighted and very excited to be bringing you the wonderful Jack Lukeman – an Irish singer-songwriter, performer, raconteur and a whole lot more besides!
“There is much to love here, not least Lukeman’s extraordinary voice which reminds of Scott Walker! (Americana UK)
A platinum-selling, critically acclaimed artist in his homeland, in recent years Lukeman has devoted more of his time to winning a growing fanbase in the UK and abroad. In this regard, he has toured the UK as Special Guest on tours by artists as varied as Imelda May, Jools Holland, The Proclaimers and U2, and is currently promoting “Magic Days”, his latest album of idiosyncratic original songs.
Lukeman is a compelling, dazzling stage performer. Incorporating the theatrical and romantic sensibilities of the likes of Jacques Brel, but with genuine melodic appeal and a knack for creating his own ‘magic realist’ world that is peopled by all manner of unusual, picaresque characters – Lukeman is a rare, unusual brand of performer.
“Mesmerising! A mixture of all the great voices of the 20th Century!” (The Guardian)
The best music artists know that the world of the recording studio and onstage are two entirely different mediums – Lukeman’s recordings are colourful, absorbing collections, but it’s in the live environment, where his stage craft and desire to inspire really take flight.
Despite the many achievements he has notched up in his lengthy career, Lukeman still has the hunger and drive to take his music to new audiences. During 2020 he’ll be taking to the road in the UK with his own headlining shows, and more special guest appearances with Caro Emerald, The Proclaimers and Jools Holland – other highlights include opening for Sting in July in Bonn, Germany – offering yet more proof of the outstanding versatility and unique talent of Jack Lukeman.
“A sense of magic wrapped in the cloak of the delightful enchantment and the melancholic ecstasy which so few can muster!” (Sound & Vision)
From clubs to concert halls, theatres to festivals, Lukeman has the performing power and compelling presence to win over the most demanding of crowds, and we know that he’s going to be making the 17ft thick walls of our historic venue reverberate with that amazing voice!
