Richard Luke is a Scottish Glasgow-based multi-instrumentalist composer and producer. In 2018, we introduced him with the first full-length Voz. Now he announced the release of a new album. Glass Island is out on April 12th via Moderna Records. It explores the tensions of living on an island in the wake of referendums on leaving the EU and Scottish independence. The songs, explains Luke, have “confidence and strength, but also a fragility and drama that makes them almost wistful and nostalgic.

The album was written and recorded collaboratively with violinist Amira Bedrush-McDonald. “Everything A Reason” is the first excerpt. Listen below.
