Luke Michielsen’s music is bright indie folk. With a writing style similar to Neil Young and vocals reminiscent of R.E.M.’s Michael Stipe, he shows a rare aptitude for melody and provocative lyrics.
After the success of his 2014 full-length Oh Surround Me, which was named “Pick of the Week” by CBC Radio, Luke has toured Canada extensively. He recently released a single called Berlin, ON, which ponders the history of the renaming of his home city Kitchener, in 1916.
