|LUKE ELLIOT DRESSED FOR THE OCCASION Limited Vinyl LP
A distinctive voice, exuberant live performances and profound writing style; Luke Elliot is steadily proving to be a force reckoned with in a competitive musical landscape. The audience is clear this New Jersey rock & roller is raw talent, he is the next Nick Cave, Chris Isaak, Leonard Cohen or Jerry Lee Lewis. Elliot has blown his entire audience away ever since he first exploded on the Norwegian music scene one year ago. With an initial launch in Norway Luke’s success is predicted to grow, and take the rest of the world by storm, by anyone who gets to experience his music.
TIDAL named him one of their top 5 artists of 2015 and presented him under the coveted “Tidal Rising” brand in Norway, and the renowned Norwegian artist Knut Schreiner (known from Turbonegro) has publicly praised and endorsed Luke Elliot as a result of the cogent experience Schreiner had after attending Elliot’s first Oslo performance in 2014.
Luke Elliot has spent most of 2015 touring Norway performing at notable venues and festivals including Oslo Spectrum (one of the biggest venues in the Norwegian capital), and two days under the prestigious Norwegian Wood festival. His album took completely over the review sections in Norwegian media with 6/6 and 5/6 scores. He did a magical performance at the biggest Norwegian TV channel on the Lindmo talk show (watch the performance on YouTube here).
And now, time has come for him to release his debut LP “Dressed For The Occasion”. An album produced by no other but the indie icon, John Agnello, whose resume include work with legendary artists such as Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr., Patti Smith, Kurt Vile and The War On Drugs.
