There are certain voices in music that when you hear them, you instantly feel how powerful they are and what they’re capable of. It’s not just their vocal performance that’s captivating, though. There’s a certain magic in their lyrics as well that immediately resonates with you and touches your heart. That’s how producer Warren Huart (The Fray, Marc Broussard, Koran, Aerosmith, Better Than Ezra) felt the first time he heard Luke Underhill’s voice, and why he knew he had to work the Chicago native on his sophomore release. As the 23-year-old prepares to release his second EP entitled Illuminations, TBK has an exclusive premiere of its leading single before its scheduled release date of Friday, April 12th.
One listen to “Yet Again” and it’s easy to hear how Underhill’s influences range from Gavin DeGraw and Bruce Springsteen to Ed Sheeran and Ben Folds. In particular, the piano driven ballad highlights not only the singer-songwriter’s impressive vocal skills, but also showcases his remarkable story-telling abilities as well. From the very first note, Underhill pulls us in, taking us on this mystical journey blurring the lines of spiritualism and romanticism, and leaves us in a whirlwind of emotions.
If “Yet Again” is just a sneak peak of what we can expect from Underhill’s forthcoming release, then there’s no doubt that this talented independent artist has an exciting career to look forward to.
