Luke recently embarked on his first live shows in the States with singer songwriter Rebecca Loebe and went on to perform duo and trio shows with Sharps and Downs in Belgium, Germany and The Netherlands as well as his hectic schedule of UK gigs.
“The tour with Amy is becoming our favourite way to start the year,” says Luke, a BBC award-nominated singer songwriter, “2017 started with my third tour with Amy. It was the best yet- we played to large, enthusiastic audiences and had a great time and I think the 2018 tour will be even better”.
Amy, who sings on the Finding Home track on Luke’s most recent studio album Tall Tales & Rumours has supported some of the world’s great artists – Van Morrison, Damien Rice, Eric Bibb and Jeff Beck – and has seven album releases to her name. In 2015 she unveiled her first solo release in six years – the EP Recovery – and her most recent EP, No Use Crying Over Spilt Milk – includes her own version of Thinking Out Loud, the track she co-wrote with Ed Sheeran.
Amy, who now has a home in Nashville, has had a busy 2017 on both sides of the Atlantic working with numerous performers including Kylie Minogue, Gary Barlow, Dixie Chicks, Carrie Underwood, Kacey Musgraves and Dan Tyminski.
Luke and Amy will perform separate sets as well as joining forces for certain numbers on this tour which showcases two generations of stand-out songwriters.
