New in 2017 - Skeleton Blues

OUT MARCH 3RD 2017

“Skeleton Blues” is the new solo record from singer/songwriter/guitarist Luke Escombe.

Recorded live on to 2 inch tape at the legendary Damien Gerard studios in Sydney, this raw and revealing session combines the sound of primal electric blues with Luke’s distinctive wit and wordplay.  The recording took place just 24 hours before the US election, and the tape reels capture the sense of foreboding.

“Skeleton Blues” lays bare the key influences in Luke’s music. It includes covers of songs by Jimi Hendrix and Bob Dylan, as well as two electrifying renditions of the old spirituals “O Death” and “John the Revelator”, a song Luke first heard performed by Son House on a live recording from the early 60s.
