Luke Carrig is a singer-songwriter from Wicklow, Ireland. After a near eight year hiatus from music—to focus on family, and pursue his first calling as a Pastor—Luke is easing back into the Irish music scene with new releases planned for 2022.
Luke was a founding member of the original Raglans line up, and co-writer of the popular track “Down” from the Raglans’ debut album which made it to #5 in the Irish Album Charts.
Luke has toured throughout Ireland and the UK supporting the likes of Cathy Davey, Gavin Glass and Midge Ure—to name a few. Luke also had the incredible opportunity to work and tour with the esteemed Squeeze front man, Glenn Tilbrook–a personal highlight.
After his recent reintroduction to recording music, former Raglans band member and Greystones based singer-songwriter Luke Carrig has released his debut EP.
The EP is the result of a live weekend recording session at Big Red Studios in Co. Wicklow, Ireland. In a spirit of collaboration Luke, along with local Greystones artists Elliot Crampton and Joshua Courtney, worked through some of Luke’s most recent material. What remains is an eclectic batch of five songs; raw in presentation and passionate in their delivery.
Luke’s first solo release is winsomely pop in places, melancholy in others, but always true to his
singer-songwriter roots. In such a small gathering of tracks there is wide appeal to a diverse
range of musical tastes.
Worth noting are the contributions of Dublin based singer-songwriter, Joanna Burke, who sang
backing vocals on Last Time; and Fiachra White, of Kammerpop, who craft-fully added keys and
reed organ to enhance both Last Time and Hopelessly. Lastly all tracks were attentively and carefully mixed and mastered by Chicago based engineer, Drew Elliot.
Luke is both excited and honoured to be supporting John at The Hotspot, Greystones on Friday 7th October 2022.
