New Jersey born and bred singer/songwriter Luke Elliot will release his debut album Dressed for the Occasion on August 18 through Jullian Records. The album was produced by John Agnello known for his work with Kurt Vile, Sonic Youth and Dinosaur Jr. among many others.
The song "Get 'Em While They're Hot," is being made available today as an instant grat track for pre-ordering the album. You can listen to the song here
The song is a remake of a version from his first of two critically praised EP's, Death of a Widow, which No Depression called "a superb debut."
Elliot's penchant for storytelling and fascination with topics a bit out-of-the norm is front-and-center on the debut album, and match the songwriter's rather unique trajectory. Signing with former Rhianna manager Christa Shaub lead to a chance meeting with an influential Norwegian journalist that would send his career on the fast-track. Elliot was soon signed to Norway's Indie Recordings, which released Dressed for the Occasion in 2016 throughout Europe. The album quickly made it to #7 Norway's iTunes chart.
And, though he'd never been out of the country - or even owned a passport - he found himself spending a whirlwind two years in Europe, embarking on sold-out tours, performing to thousands of new fans, appearing on major TV shows, and drawing the praise of the European press.
Germany's version of Rolling Stone wrote "Luke Elliot's style is timeless, his songs tell stories and comparisons to Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, or Tom Waits are therefore not uncommon."
US tour dates in support of Dressed For The Occasion will be announced soon.
