At fi rst glance, you d be forgiven for dismissing 24-year-old Luke Leighfi eld (from Worcestershire, UK )as just another singersongwriter with an acoustic guitar. Except his acoustic guitar is a piano. And his singer-songwriter tendencies have been usurped by huge soundscapes, where strings and brass fi ght to be heard against screaming rock guitars - a sound informed by a classically trained childhood and teenage years spent at underground punk rock shows. His tender moments recall the likes of Ben Folds and Coldplay while his loud moments enter the rock territory of bands like Queen and The Rocket Summer. Luke s extensive gigging has seen him share stages with artists including Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly, Fun., Frank Turner, Joshua Radin, William Fitzsimmons and Jenny Owen-Youngs. Luke Leighfi eld is feel-good, DIY, orchestral pop-rock at its fi nest.
