TWENTY FIVE TEN
Over the past two decades, Luke Mornay has shaped his musically driven signature sound around artists from a wide range of genres. This unpredictability not only brought him into unexpected scenes but also brought rave reviews for his work by press and fans of the artists, as well as a Grammy Award nomination and a couple of #1 records.
Luke’s Twenty five ten album (named as a homage to his mother’s birthdate) sees another turn in his career. His musical DNA is what’s radiating throughout his album. It’s not a 2020 sounding album but Luke’s album in 2020 – with a current sound, but inspired by decades of influences and experiences.
“…I spent years meeting people’s expectations, time felt right for me to meet my own. Going independent to produce my debut album has already fulfilled some of my dreams, I could go back to the roots of what got me into music and mix my various influences such as Supertramp, Earth Wind and Fire, Ray Parker Jr, Depeche Mode, 10cc, Chic, and the 80s in general.
I’m a pop and funk lover.I see my album as a new born child, it’s the starting point, It feels like parenting, hoping the best for your kids and guide them throughout life events.It won’t please all and what’s great is that that’s not the point…”
“..When it came to featurings on this album it was a natural choice to me to connect with artists such as Kevin Godley from the legendary band 10cc or James Atkin from EMF, as well as friends made over time such as Lucy Pullin (Craig Armstrong, Robbie Williams, Goldfrapp), Rachael Atkin (Fluke, Beauty School Drop Outs), PJ Hawn,Melanie Taylor, Nick Tart (Diamond Head), Roxy Horner, Flora.
I’m really proud of them and grateful for their generous inputs and help to support my project. There will be even more talents additions and surprises for an upcoming version of my album in its deluxe form…”
“Besides my emotional motivation to get this project done, I really wanted this record to connect genres, eras & mix generations. Somehow connect the dots between timelines in a unified story, with its joyful & bonkers moments, with its own directions & contradictions, or more simply put: my story.”
