She has recently written songs with numerous upcoming songwriters, including Ed Sheeran, who released an EP, “Songs I Wrote With Amy”. BBC Radio 2’s Bob Harris describes her as ,”An irresistible, riveting performer”.

Luke is a rising young Roots singer-songwriter from Canterbury, Kent , and 2013 saw him nominated for both the Horizon Award for Best Emerging Talent and the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award.
