“Lukeman’s voice is powerful and fluid. His range too is impressive, from the deep baritone resonance of ‘When The Moon Is High’ to the aching falsetto of the magnificent ‘Rooftop Lullaby’ … this is a timeless collection of fine songs, beautifully delivered, from an artist as unique as Ireland has ever produced.” – John Walshe (Hot Press)
Lukeman first came to prominence in the summer of 1995 when he and The Black Romantics took up a residency at The Da Club (Dublin Arts Club) in Dublin selling out night after night. The band’s set included interpretations of the famous Belgium Bard Jacques Brel along with several of Jack’s own compositions. The band recorded the album Wax in 1995 before splitting in 1997.
From 1999 to 2016 Jack has released a steady stream of critically acclaimed original albums and compilations.
He has also performed over the years supporting or alongside U2, Ronnie Wood, Robert Plant and Jimmy Page, John Lee Hooker, Elvis Costello, Jools Holland, and Marianne Faithfull, and has appeared at venues such as Olympia Paris, Royal Albert Hall in London, and The Lincoln Center in NYC.
“I think music in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everyone loves music.”
