LUKE is the New Blues Band of the German singer/songwriter and guitarist Lukas Schüßler.

Since he was thirteen, singer, guitarist and songwriter Lukas Schüßler aka LUKE has been on stage for more than 15 years. He has played in the hottest blues clubs and festivals in Germany, France, Luxembourg and Holland, and has toured as the opening act for Patti Smith , Keb' Mo' or Taj Mahal and was named winner of the German Rock and Pop Award 2019 .

Inspired by blues legends like Eric Clapton and John Mayer as well as songwriters like Sting and Bruce Springsteen, LUKE combines tradition and modernity in his songs. Catchy, poppy songwriting meets the organic sound, energy and authenticity of the blues. With "...extremely expressive intensity..." (Joachim Joe Brookes , RockTimes, 09/14/21), the Saarbrücken native sings and plays his songs with a rough and distinctive voice, which reflect the songwriter's musical versatility.

With 22 songs already released on 3 CDs, including 4 music videos since the band was founded in 2019, LUKE shows that in addition to his distinctive voice and dynamically singing blues guitar, the songs are the main focus. MusikNah wrote about his first EP Out Of The Blue : You can tell that there are already several years of experience in songwriting” - A very successful mix of blues, rock, soul and a touch of indie.” With his second EP Break The Silence, LUKE already made it onto the radio with the two singles So Far Away From You and Break The Silence” and has been asked several times for interviews in newspapers and on SR television. In 2023, LUKE will present his debut album Strange Boy In Town with 10 songs mixed by international greats such as Dominik Rivinius (Eminem, Alicia Keys, Taylor Swift) and mastered by multiple Grammy Award winner Brian Lucey (Elvis Costello, Buddy Guy, Black Keys).

“Sophisticated guitar technique, expressive vocals, perfect songwriting, a wonderfully grooving band, expansive improvisations and incredible dynamics - not only a live experience on an international level” ( Saarbrücker Zeitung, June 24, 2022).
