Address: Athy, Kildare
Hailing from Athy, Co.Kildare, Jack Lukeman is one of Irelands top artists. His energetic live shows compare to early Springsteen meets Tom Jones in terms of the blood, sweat and tears of performance. Coupled with his broody earthy sexiness (Voted most sexy man under-25 in In Dublin for two years running) it is no surprise that his shows sell-out weeks in advance.
His voice as one critic remarked "is a mixture of all the great male singing voices of the 20th century". It has earned Jack glowing reviews and resulted in IRMA and Hot Press nominations.
What The Critics Say
"Lukeman has a gorgeous, versatile baritone that can tiptoe down the boundary between sincerity and hyperbole. Metropolis Blue contains parent-child ballads as sentimental as anything by Cat Stevens, retro-swing numbers as calculated as anything by Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and glam-rock concoctions as shameless as anything by David Bowie. What?s appealing about Lukeman is the unjaded gusto he puts into every vehicle.- Washington Post, Geoffrey Himes
