Spinnup proudly introduces Liverpool based Singer/Songwriter Luke Royalty and his shimmering new single ‘October Seven’, marking the first single from an exciting run of singles anticipated throughout 2020 through to 2021.
Music has always been an outlet for Manchester born Luke, developing his songwriting skills in his late teens by studying all things music. “There’s a musical side in my family so it was only a matter of time before I fell in love with it” Luke explained, saying “Music helped change who I am, to the point it has always felt a part of me.” Although he has been singing and gigging in bands for years, Luke Royalty is a brand new solo project, an ingenious anagram of his full name Luke Taylor.
You can hear his years of experience from the touch of the play button with October Seven. The instant ease set from the tender vocal harmony intro, to the infectious neo-soul guitar riff carried by Luke’s stirring vocals, smooth lyrical flow and delivery throughout the track work to capture the complicated intricacies of desperation and hopelessness when clinging on to a dying relationship. Luke’s vocals are one of a kind – smooth and soaring yet still containing a moving, soulful kick which compliments the tracks many influences from the contemporary R&B stylings of Frank Ocean and Daniel Caesar whilst also maintaining 80s style production (thanks to the rising talent that is Bob Mackenzie).
This run of single releases will see Luke Royalty work with up and coming producer Bob Mackenzie even more, a dream partnership that will cement Luke Royalty as one of the UK most exciting new artists. His next follow up single titled I Could Get Used to This is set to be released in October and will feature Manchester based rapper Sweets is a track of the same stylistic vein to October Seven, taking on a more pop convention. However, through the support of a tranquil keys and a funky bass, the song seems to have its own layer of unique stylings that help it stand out from other modern RnB tracks.
