PRAISE FOR LUKE HEMMINGS


“…equal parts mesmerising and immersive.”

Rolling Stone Australia

 

“Creating music that’s meant to make people feel the emotions within each note, Hemmings’ foray into solo music may be hyper-focused on his own thoughts and feelings, despite this there is a universality to its message”
CLASH

 

“Hemmings knows how to guide its pop melodies past the production details and to the song’s forefront.”

Billboard

 

“…earnest arena-rock to rose-tinted pop.”

NME Magazine

 

“…an epic, swirling and often orchestral musical concoction…”

Kathy McCabe, The Daily Telegraph

 

“This is a man embarking on bringing into our lives his very own ideas,

and it sounds pretty big, to be honest…it’s bold, it’s rewarding…”

Jack Saunders (BBC Radio 1) 

 

“impressive solo debut….touching on the expansive production…as well as quietly sparse singer-songwriter influences.”

Robert Moran, Sydney Morning Herald

 

“The music and tone of Hemmings’s voice are so powerful that the songs almost don’t require words to express emotions.”
