The drifter was a nickname of mine in college. It’s a reference to an early Hank Williams album.
Describe your sound.
It’s kind of genre splitting- we play a lot of variety, but I think it’s closest to Americana.
Where do you find inspiration for writing these songs?
I tend to write more on the tragedy side of life, I find my inspiration in my own and others experiences.
What are your songs about?
Love, religion, addiction, existential meaning of life, heartbreak, depression, the usual stuff 🙂
What are your musical influences?
Bob Dylan, Jackson Browne, Neko Case, Paul Simon, to mention a few. I like good songwriters.
What are you working on right now?
We will be recording a single in the next few months, hopefully to be released soon after. We just opened up our new website Thedrifterluke.com and we are really excited to be sharing some exclusive tracks there.
Upcoming shows we should know about?
Any side projects/music collaborations happening?
Always. I think every person in the band is active in another project.
What are you looking forward to the most this year?
Playing as much as possible and growing together musically. I’ve been lucky to find some super talented musicians to be part of the band and I’m excited to see how far we will go.
