Luke Escombe and the Corporation - Rock and Roll

Luke Escombe and the Corporation - Rock and Roll
Born in London, Luke’s first introduction to music came backstage at a Genesis concert at Knebworth, England as a six month old baby. As part of a musical dynasty, Luke’s father toured throughout Europe as a bass player during the 1960’s. Luke’s musical lineage provided him with the opportunity to see every major act in England and the USA which led to Luke’s own musical evolution, adopting the guitar at the tender age of seven. Moving to Australia as a university graduate to escape England’s notoriously cold weather, Luke amassed himself a cult following as one of Sydney’s most original and innovative young songwriters and performers.

“Mantown” was recorded in the Byron Bay hinterland with Luke’s long time band “The Corporation”. In between sessions, Luke tried out an experimental version of his one-man live show at the 2011 Melbourne Comedy Festival under the title “Chronic”. It was a critical success, drawing comparisons to Nick Cave and Tim Minchin, and led him on to a series of sold out shows at the Edinburgh, Sydney and Adelaide Fringes, an appearance on ABC News 24’s “Tonic” program, and a nomination for a 2012 Green Room award.

About this track...

When recording this track the key for Luke was to capture the energy of the band playing live. ‘I didn’t want to fix anything in post or add unnecessary layers of production to the raw product. We played until we got a take that left us shaking’ said Luke.
