Background Info: Luke's musical career as a singer was certainly unexpected. Before the sound of a capella filled his ears, Luke picked up a bass guitar at the age of 14. This, in turn, would eventually open up his eyes to the unyielding horizons of music. When his brother (Nate) and Drew produced their own a capella CD while attending high school, Luke realized that this whole singing thing
might not be a bad idea. So, two years later, he auditioned and was selected
for an advanced singing choir at his high shool. Having never sung before,
Luke was shown the ropes of vocal music through his peers and through his
outstanding instructor, Mrs. Joey Hartman. The next two years, Luke went on
to be selected for two varsity choirs, along with starting an all-male
quintet a capella group known as "Noblemen & Bel Canto" with Justin and Zakk.
This group went on to sing for many occasions and events, including the
College World Series and won the state talent competition for the Lions Club.
They also produced their own album with original songs. However, Luke
always wanted to sing with his brother and friends so, when high school
ended, the two groups' leftover members came together to form "NBC",
sometimes known as the "Supergroup". Luke believes that this group will be
the one that "makes it" musically. He also gigs with his two bands regularly
and is slowly becoming known as the funkiest bassist in this region.
Whatever he's doing, he luvs him some music.
