Luke Andrews is a high-energy entertainer, dynamic performer and original singer/songwriter who relays his experiences and life lessons through his lyrics in a way that everyone can relate to. He has a unique acoustic rhythmic style and passionate vocals that create a fresh funk/rock sound.

Biography

In 2006, shortly after Luke moved to LA from Toronto, he was struck by a car while getting off of a bus. He came away from the accident with nothing but a couple scratches and a huge medical bill. What he realized later, is that he learned so much more.

Luke states, “I named my band The LA Accident (The Luke Andrews Accident), not only because I was alive after facing death, but also because I don't believe in ‘accidents.’ Accidents usually have a negative connotation. I believe that almost everything happens for a reason.”

In 2008, he appeared on MTV's NEXT, where the New York Film Academy shot a music video for his original song, Back in Love, and the release of his first album, Rising, followed. His sophomore album, The Movement, is a socially conscious message of change delivered with a funky mix of reggae, hip-hop and blues. The album is a collaboration with many guests, including soulful back-up singers, Maya and Nandy McClean (have worked with Prince), groovy sax player, Harold Torres, and hard-hitting hip-hop vocalist, Eddie Moreno.

Luke Andrews and The LA Accident have played at many prominent clubs, festivals, and competitions in Southern California, FL, and Canada, including The Roxy, Viper Room, Whisky-A-Go-Go, BB King's (opening for Blessid Union of Souls), Cameron House, Temecula Hot Summer Nights, Florida Music Festival 2005 and the 2010 Emergenza Finals.

Lyrics

Spinnin'

Written By: Luke Andrews

Trying to find my way, find my way back home. And I know through the
light of day, you won't leave me alone. You'll be there to guide me,
keep me safe from harm. Don't know how you do it, don't know how you
do it, with everyone else in your arms.

I see the whole world spinnin' around with positivity, cause I see the
whole world spinnin' around filled with peace.

Now that I found my way,I found my way back home. I know even when I
felt alone, you were there, ohh. Like a bird's wing on a cold night,
you caried me through the storm. Oh, how I feel you, feel you as one.

I see the whole world spinnin' around with positivity, cause I see the
whole world spinnin' around filled with peace.

And we Keep Spinnin, Keep Spinnin', Keep Spinnin' Around

I see the whole world spinnin' around with positivity, cause I see the
whole world spinnin' around filled with peace.

Wasted

Written By: Luke Andrews

I wasted days before, I wasted months, there was never time before
time for what?

i've lifted weights before, and i've trimmed pounds, but have i
settled the score for now

I'm not goin down and out
I'm not leavin' scared and proud

I've wasted thoughts before, spent brain cells
was it a lie before, If I was not myself

I've aced math before, and I've been stared down, but have they
settled the score for now

I'm not goin down and out
I'm not leavin' scared and proud

I've wasted bills before, whole accounts, this old plan never seems to work out
I've wasted love before, then tried to drown, have I settled the score for now

I'm not goin down and out
I'm not leavin' scared and proud

Before I waste away again

I won't waste away again

Margarita

Written By: Luke Andrews

Margarita, have you seen her?
Margarita, it's nice to meet ya

A new flavor, I'm pulled in by her smile.
She's got bite and a whole lotta style.
And when she talks, she don't withhold a sound.
She'll turn you on and then knock you down.

Margarita, have you seen her?
Margarita, it's nice to meet ya

I know she's familiar, but I don't recognize her taste.
Her smile, her skin, identical at the waste.
But this attitude, new groove and dangerous ways,
put this stubborn man back in his place

Margarita, have you seen her?
Margarita, it's nice to meet ya

When you're out in the open, should be exactly where you stand on the ground. So if you rise with a new fire, don't hold back. Spread your wings higher, take it from her today. Margarita will show you five different tastes!

Margarita, have you seen her?
Margarita, it's nice to meet ya

Have you seen my Margarita?
Everybody knows your name
