a quirky look at London Life

From His New Album ~Luke Jackson ~ Fumes And Faith

See on Scoop.itMusic for a London Life

The first official music video of ‘Fumes and Faith’, the title track of Luke Jackson’s second album. Filmed and edited by Light Tone Studios.


“A huge talent is emerging” – Acoustic Magazine

“A commanding presence  – a class album. It’s hard to believe he’s only 19 – a really strong performer and songwriter and a fine guitar player. Fumes and Faith is already causing quite a stir.”-  Mike Harding

“Very powerful – impressive songs, individual playing and the singing – oh man the singing!” – Folkcast

“CD received 40 minutes ago and straight into the player… Wow! What a complete package this young man is… His perceptions of and insight into issues are astounding as is his empathy. I might expect an album like this from a Richard Thompson but not when they were 19” – Len Holton,

From Albion & Beyond, KUAR Radio, Arkansas


“A new emerging talent” – Bob Harris

“A maturity beyond his years reminiscent of a young Tim Buckley with a touch of Nizlopi thrown in for good measure”- Northern Sky

“He plays  with a maturity of artists two and three times his age and there is something in his songs that speaks of an old soul and belies his youth”- FATEA Magazine

“A huge talent” – Hardeep Singh Kohli, BBC Radio 2

“Surely one of the stars of the not too distant future” – Living Tradition


“Luke Jackson shows the folk tradition is in safe hands” – Songlines

Ursula O’Reilly Traynor‘s insight:

I’ve seen Luke perform live and I love his passion and his adherence to his roots in his songwriting. Born to be onstage, he merged  the steely spirit and stage presence of an emerging young rock star, with the responsive mind of a knowing folk musician. Not bad going for a then-18 year old. He’s joined at the hip to his beloved guitar and he’s just brimful of energy; a young man on a mission. Seek  him out on tour. He’s @ Cecil Sharp House for the launch of his new album, Fumes And Faith.


Promises to be a great night. Deserves to be a sell-out.




Fumes and Faith is released on Martyn Joseph’s Pipe Records label on February 10 with a special album launch gig at London’s Cecil Sharp House on Wednesday, February 12. Tickets, price £10 on 020 7485 2205  or online at
