Elevated in East Nashville, indie folk/Americana singer/songwriter Luke Roberts spent his formative years singing and dance at church and acquiring saxophone lessons before picking right up an classical guitar. His encounters discovering the rougher sides of town, particularly the old teach back yards, helped to complete the tales and character types on his debut recording. Documented by Kyle Spence (Harvey Dairy) in Athens, Georgia, Big Bells and Dime Tunes was released this year 2010 around the Ecstatic Serenity! label, and reissued in 2011 on Excitement Jockey. After touring, he relocated 3 x — from Brooklyn (where he published and documented his debut recording) to Montana to his child years house of Nashville. Roberts documented 2012’s even more lushly illustrated The Iron Gates at Throop and Newport with Marky Nevers in Nashville. Roberts spent another four years interesting his wanderlust via moves to NY, Cambodia, Thailand, and Kenya, that second option of which offered a lot of the motivation for his third studio room LP, 2016’s Sunlit Mix.
