Luke Elliot (US) signs with Icons Creating Evil Art and release third album ”Let ’em All Talk” in May 2023!
While the permanent darkness of the polar region still holds the Nordic countries in an icy gray choke hold, a new alliance is concluded between the master of twisted gothic Americana and the Swedish torch bearers of alternative music as Luke Elliot signs with Icons Creating Evil Art.
Having released two critically acclaimed albums since 2016, Luke Elliot has become known for his compelling live performances, solid songwriting skills and cinematic musicality, offering bold emotionality, poetic lyrics and haunting epic tales.
Now resident in Norway, Luke was born and raised in New Jersey and artistically bred around the tri-state area. These days, Luke enjoys an international artist’s profile, having toured extensively in Europe and the U.S. and sold out venues all over the world.
While elaborating on uniting with Icons Creating Evil Art, Elliot says: ”I was immediately impressed by the creative atmosphere at ICEA the minute I walked in the door. We´ve hit the ground running fast here, and can´t wait for you all to hear and see what´s coming. Thank you to Carl-Marcus and the team for your passion. Release details for the new album to follow soon… "
The founding father of the label, Carl-Marcus Gidlöf, adds with emphasis: "We're thrilled to welcome Luke Elliot to our Evil Art family, to get a chance to work his incredible new music and build up a visual world together to match the beautiful darkness that dwells within his writing and voice. Luke Elliot will get our full international push using our unique setup for promotion, marketing and distribution. We are Icons Creating Evil Art"
”Let ’em All Talk” will be released on Icons Creating Evil Art in May 2023
