Born into a large, creative family in Lakefield, Ontario (one of his brothers is singer/songwriter Royal Wood), Luke Nicholson had his first major breakthrough in 2007 when the track “Breathe” from the film Poor Boys Game earned a Genie nomination for Best Original Song. Nicholson’s debut album Mad Love came out in 2012, spawning four CBC Radio 2 Top 20 singles and earning glowing reviews in Europe, most notably from Rolling Stone Magazine (Germany) which named Nicholson “One To Watch” after he performed at Berlin's prestigious IFA gala.
Following a whirlwind year on the road, touring and performing at vaunted European showcases Nicholson released the follow-up, Frantic City, in 2015 which furthered his reputation as one of Canada’s top emerging songwriters. Frantic City spawned 2 radio singles “Maggie’s Song” and “Sadie” which received both support from major radio and CBC across Canada, was named to SOCAN’s Pick of the Week and Alan Cross’s Top 11 in Canada.
His forthcoming album Shape and Sound is proof that music still has the capacity to be intelligent yet catchy, mature but fun, and above all, talk about experiences to which we can all relate.
