Raised in the grey anywhere of Greater London, Luca never played an instrument in his youth. It was a family tradition of gunslinger ballads and time-old story-singalongs, and his eventual love for Leonard Cohen, that spurred him to begin song writing. Inspired later by a mixtape gifted to him by his supportive schoolteacher, he set out to achieve his ambition.
Signed to Abbey Records in 2019, his debut single, ‘Heartachers’ out earlier this year won praise from fans and critics alike. Made by award-winning filmmaker Patrick Fileti it’s a powerful piece of film that works beautifully with Luca’s song.
‘Johanna’ is taken from Luca’s debut album – expected later this year.
