Australian Music Prize-nominated composer Luke Howard has been described as "absolutely heavenly" (Mary Anne Hobbs, BBC Radio 6) and his music as "an ambient masterclass" (Musos' Guide), but no words can fully capture the potency of Howard's enthralling compositions. A pianist since childhood, Howard has scored films and performed with artists as diverse as Lior and Jeff Mills, capturing audiences with contemporary classical arrangements that curl and twist around the boundaries of a particular emotion. Though wordless, Howard's songs perform a function unique to music as a medium - that of evoking without describing, bringing listeners to a feeling which defies articulating.
In 2018 Luke released his third solo album, 'Open Heart Story', and will return to the Hamburg Elbphilharmonie for a second concert in as many years. Luke's score to Where Do Lilacs Come From won Best Music for a Short Film at the 2014 APRA/AMCOS Screen Music Awards.
Luke is signed to UK label Mercury KX (Lambert, Olafur Arnalds, Solomon Grey) and is represented by Secretly Publishing.
