About Luke

I am a composer, arranger and performer. I play cello (grade 8), bass guitar, double bass, piano and guitar. I also teach music theory.
Public liability insurance of £10 million

I’m a full time professional composer, arranger and session musician based in Liverpool. My first instrument is cello, followed by bass guitar, guitar, double bass and piano. My performance work ranges from studio sessions, live shows with bands and solo artists of a variety of genres, through to playing in theatre pit bands, weddings, private functions and some chamber music. I am also the artistic director of Operation Lightfoot; an ongoing series of collaborations with guest songwriters, musicians, visual artists, film makers and more.
