About me

Dynamic!Creative!Cultural! These words only begin to describe the music and talents of luke Dej. guitarist extraordinaire/artist/songwriter/percusionist/singer, luke has steadily and carefully crafted an original body of work he calls a "spiritually tinged blend of jazz,rock,blues,funk and traditional African music." Luke's unique brand of music, addresses all human emotions that fall under the universal theme of Love,joy and peace .He takes music back to its roots with his rocky/jazzy guitar driven approach to performing and recording. He's ultimately, his own artist.His unique style is shown throughout his music, and his personality is one that everyone falls in love with. Born in the western part of africa .luke spent his early childhood in Lagos, immersed in the act, sound and rhythm of one of the most frenetic cities on earth . Influenced by the insurgent, politicized Afrobeat music of Fela Kuti, evergreen highlife music of rex lawson,victor olaiya, the unpredictable guitar phrases of wes montgomery,mark withfield,paul gilbert,bluesy notes of robben ford,zakk wylde,eric johnson,van halen,jimmy hendrix,bb king,jonathan butler,charlie parker,herbie hankock,chick corea ,joe pass and brian mcnight,hossanna integrity artist,and the local church revival songs. The music is in his blood. He extensively toured asia with asian's best musician and now currently working on his first solo album which is in international and local version respectively... Check out his Single track ...tittled Ariyaa!!!Done in the african groovy dance way with soulful yoruba vocal and straight from the heart lyrics..Watch this space....Coming soon!!!Ariyaa(African version)!!! ..
