Luke Dick

BandCountryAmericana

This is music for world-weary, shit-kicking, blue-collar intellects. This is a soundtrack to a beautiful desert drive. This music is romantic like Oklahoma thunderstorms are, not like Keith Urban is. This is American, but not fanatical. This is country, but not your daddy's.

Biography

Born of a burlesque dancer and a traveling salesman, Luke Dick naturally finds plenty to write and sing about. But the combination of broken homes, as well as a country-class upbringing in rural southwestern Oklahoma creates a unique perspective in this young artist. Far from limited, Luke's songs run the gamut, from hopeless tales of the disenfranchised to hopeful pictures of the beautiful. His work ethic took him from red dirt poor to educated country-man, and that raw grit combined with wit and education produce something very special. I asked Luke about his very unusual concoction of a life as a maintenance man, forklift driver, philosophy student, philosophy teacher, and songwriter/performer. Grinning, Luke says, "I guess I'm city in a country kinda way."
