Biography

Luke Ritchie has just completed the recording of his debut 4-track EP Cover It Up on Angel Falls Records, with producer Anthony Whiting (M.I.A., Natalie Williams), set for release in July.

His voice has already drawn the attention of a varied group of artists. Radio 1’s Mary-Anne Hobbs passed a CD of his work on to Limp Bizkit’s Wes Borland, and the two were in discussions on his new project Eat the Day before he returned to Fred Durst.

More recently, Luke returned from Prague after working on the soundtrack to Horem pádem, one the most successful films ever made in the Czech Republic. The director Jan Hrebejk and composer Aleš Březina heard Luke’s voice in London, and invited him over to the Czech Republic to work on the film’s soundtrack.

Plans are now underway for a full album, as well as a limited UK tour later in the summer.

REVIEW FROM MET BAR GIG DECEMBER 13TH 2007
By Tobias Hill

Rags to Ritchie

The Met Bar’s full of ragamuffins! Actually they’re not that threadbare - some of them don’t even have holes in their clothes - but one thing’s for sure; Old Park Lane’s Metropolitan Hotel isn’t their normal stomping ground. The Barfly or the Water Rats look more their natural habitat; the Met Bar, meanwhile, has escaped wholesale out of a Smirnoff Ice ad, all Japanese silk wallpaper and Cristal champagne at £1800 a pop.
