REVIEW: Luke Keating – Tonight

lukekeatingThe upcoming debut album by Luke Keating, On the Rise, is aptly named.

This is an artist whose trajectory is evident from the very first single. “Tonight” from said debut illustrates exceptional talent and skill.

Haunting guitar opens this song, laying the foundation for the soulful vocals, emerging into an acquiescent alt-rock hook, akin to Rob Thomas of Matchbox Twenty fame would be a fair comparison, making this track feel recognizable.

Remarkably polished for a debut with a familiarity that feels as if your man Luke has been around awhile. I certainly hope he will be.

Tonight has piqued my interest and I am anxious to watch its inevitable ascension. Noelle Ellis, GiggingNI.com
