Previously playing on the circuit in touring bands, Luke Williams has now gone solo, a project born of the pandemic. Hailing from Hampshire, Shadow Bones’ fantastic solo project of singer songwriter Luke Williams, has had a busy couple of years in the build up and release of his debut album ‘In Another Life’, which has gained a lot of attention from the likes of BBC Introducing and CLASH Magazine.
This beautifully written album is one that tells of Lukes demons and vulnerabilities through his sweet lyrics full of emotion. All the songs were written about a period of time in Luke’s early stages of alcohol recovery, which he talks about as being in another life.
His vocals are honest and raw, with songs like ‘Love Is A Reason’ that are deep and meaningful to the upbeat and dynamic ‘Over and Out’. This album is full of heart.
Of the album Luke says “Writing songs in lockdown was cathartic, a means of therapy. It transported me back to a dark period of time I had left behind when I was battling sobriety, in the early years of recovery. Being in lockdown gave me that time to reflect on life, what’s been, appreciate what you do have and what you don’t. I never thought a bag of pasta would mean so much to me”.
A must for all Indie/Americana Blues Rock fans, look out for upcoming gigs in 2023!
