Luke Potter a NEW Pop sensation of the future… be ready

So-Sugar-Cover-iTunes

 

 

 

How old are you? 

 

I am 23 years old (and 23 years young J)

 

 

What is your genre of music?

 

Pop Music – but some people have labelled it pop / rock or power pop or indie rock. I get a bit confused by labels so I keep it simple by saying Pop Music

 

 

Give a Little Bio of yourself.

 

“I like to tell a story that sends a message…. often this is about being the person you want to be. I hope people will listen to my songs and be able to relate to them.”

 

I’m an Artist / Songwriter from the UK.  My songs are written from the heart and delivered in a style that I hope make them ear catching and easy to relate too.

 

In the last year I signed a management deal with a team whose artists include Justin Timberlake, Akon & David Archuleta. I’ve spent 2013 and 2014 writing and recording my songs in Sweden, Canada and the USA.

 

My 1st album, ‘So Sugar’, was released on November 18th, 2014 and I’m currently doing School Tours across the UK.

 

I’m planning to write more songs and record my 2nd album in the summer of 2015.

 

 

 How long have you been doing music? 

 

3-4 years seriously…

 

 

 

What made you go in to music? 

 

“Iris” by The Goo Goo Dolls is the song that made me realize I wanted to write songs.  So, at 17 I picked up an acoustic guitar for the first time and started writing songs not only about love but also about growing up… and it helped that my Dad had lots of guitars in the house and my parents were always supporting me to write and play.

 

Are you a Signed Artist? If so what label?

 

I have my own label but I’d love to get signed by a major label so that they can help me get my music to more people.

 

 

 

Who are your influences?

 

Jimmy Eat World, The Goo Goo Dolls, Fountains of Wayne, Bleu, Imagine Dragons, Boys Like Girls, Yellowcard, Parachute and lots of other artists

 

 

When will you be releasing new music?

 

My 1st album, ‘So Sugar’ just came out on Nov 18th, 2014 but I know I’m gonna have a new album recorded and ready to go for July 2015. Well, that’s the plan at the moment!!!

 

 

How do you get inspiration to write songs? 

 

I write from the heart (not really the head) about people and things around me and how I’m feeling. It’s a very natural process for me

 

 

 

Where is your dream place to perform in USA?

 

Got to be Madison Square Garden or The Hollywood Bowl but just as long as there’s an audience (of one or more people) then I’m happy playing anywhere

 

 

Where is your dream place to perform in UK?

 

Wembley or Hammersmith Odeon probably

 

 

If you could go on Tour with any Singer or Band from UK who would it be and why? ( IF No one in UK choose an artist from somewhere other Than USA)

 

Probably 5 Seconds of  Summer  because I think they’d get my music!

 

 

If you could go on Tour with any Singer or Band  from USA who would it be and why? 

 

I love Imagine Dragons and it would be great to support them!

 

 

 

Where do you see yourself in 2-5 years?

 

I’ll be happy if I’m able to be writing music and earning enough to do what I love J but I think I’ll be happy whatever I’m doing!

 

 

If you weren’t doing music what would you be doing? 

 

I’d probably be working with children and helping them. Training or mentoring young people would be amazing

 

 

Who is your favourite Artist or Band at The Moment?

 

Today it’s Jimmy Eat World but may change tomorrow J

 

 

If you got a tv show or film interested in your music, which one would you let your music be played on?

 

If my music fitted into a TV show or film then that’d be great so not gonna be choosy on this one… as I just want people to hear it!

 

Do you have any social media accounts for your fans?
