Luke Underhill releases new EP ‘Back to November’



The singer-songwriter known as Luke Underhill has released his latest EP, titled, “Back to November.” The album is comprised of six original songs for an approximate total listening time of 20 minutes. The record is Underhill’s most anticipated and significant official release since his 2012 debut, a CD intended primarily as a press kit, titled, “Introducing Luke Underhill.” “Introducing…” is a solo, acoustic record containing six cover songs and three Underhill originals that jump started his fledgling music career, and which proved in short order that the entertainer would no doubt be forthcoming with more.

Underhill cites as main artistic influences such artists as Jason Mraz and John Mayer, though he considers Bruce Springsteen, Ed Sheeran and Coldplay to be the main influences on his writing style. Elements of all these are easily noted in the mood and tone of Underhill’s music. His chord progressions often invoke the patterns of ’80s rock and contemporary pop music.

Interestingly enough also, though attributes of their infamous sound do not appear in work by Luke Underhill, Australian rockers AC/DC figure somewhat prominently in his personal music history.

“I was watching an AC/DC concert DVD when I was 8,” Underhill relates, “and watching Angus Young having so much fun made me want to learn how to play the guitar. The first song I learned from my music teacher was T.N.T.”

As may be intuited from his listing Jason Mraz and John Mayer as favorite musical acts, Underhill’s lyrical themes are interpersonal and often romantic in nature.


He comments on the meanings inherent in “Back to November,”One of the most important things in life, is having a good, trustworthy, and strong relationship with someone in this world. Everyone deserves to be loved, everyone deserves to be cared for, everyone deserves to be happy.”


Underhill was born in 1995 in Chicago, IL, adopted by his parents at birth, and raised in Yorkville. His sister, also adopted, is little more than two months younger. His “Back to November” record is the first in a series of three EP records he intends to publish in the coming months.


“Back to November” by Luke Underhill is available online worldwide beginning 28 November 2013.
