This debut album by Luke Samuel Cox is chalk full of vivid lyrical imagery and catchy melodies that will keep the listener humming for days. Each song has its' very own distinct flavour, yet there is a thread running through the album which is hard to pin down.
Anyone who understands the subtleties of music will hear a mix of different musical flavours but somehow want to find a single word to describe celtic/ folk/ rock/ country. Luke has found a way to blend them all together with the skill of a fine craftsman. Buy the CD, give it a few listens and you'll see. Once the crafty blend of music and the deep, story-riddled lyrics get a hold of you, the CD will not come out of your player.
Mel D'Souza, The Downhomer Magazine,
"...Luke's music can be enjoyed in solitude, or in a crowded dance hall. His music knows no age boundaries; his music appeals to teens and to grandparents alike. With "Adrift" Luke has transcended the musical genre and generation gap."
"...The recording artist is an up and coming artist that you should really have a look at. His music carries a wide range of flavours from country to popular, with a folk flavour running through it."
Rick Ivanov, Dogstar Music compilation
