Luke Hemmings has sold millions of records, toured the globe numerous times, accumulated billions of streams, and become one of Australia’s most successful musical exports. As a solo artist, Luke has turned his creative process inward, finding a place for self-discovery, exploration, and experimentation. The first result was his critically acclaimed debut solo EP, “When Facing The Things You Turn Away From,” released in 2021.

Recorded in New York with Grammy-nominated producer Sammy Witte (Maggie Rodgers, Harry Styles, Freya Ridings), Hemmings’ “boy” EP is a result of continued introspection into maturity and humanity paired with the influence of LCD Soundsystem, My Bloody Valentine, The Verve, and Cocteau Twins culminating in a body of work highlighting both Luke’s evolution and his craft as a songwriter. The first glimpse of that can be heard in the layers of loneliness explored in “Shakes.” 2024 is a year of growth for Hemmings with lots more to come soon.
