The singer and songwriter known as Luke Underhill has released his new EP record, “Atlas.” The EP brings six new Underhill tracks for an approximate total listening time of half an hour. It has been proudly published on the Rags Records independent music label without the influence of the corporate music industry. The most significant Underhill release since his breakaway surprise 2013 hit, “Back to November,” “Atlas” is evocative, melodic, and poised to bring the music of Luke Underhill to listeners around the globe.
Luke Underhill cites as main artistic influences the Beatles, Bruce Springsteen, Jason Mraz, and John Mayer. In terms of similarities, his own style lies closest to the latter two, and fans of both Mraz and Mayer are certain to be enthusiastic with all of Luke Underhill’s repertoire and especially with this latest “Atlas” EP.
Speaking of the themes of his “Atlas” record, Underhill writes, “There are many ways to live your life and you can find answers in many different ways and places. Sometimes you need help, direction and guidance. Just like when you’re traveling to a destination, sometimes you need to refer to an ‘Atlas’ for directions and guidance to help get you there.”
Luke Underhill is an up-and-coming young musician from the Chicago area. His “Atlas” EP is the first of two extended-play albums scheduled to drop from him in May 2015, the second being an unplugged version of “Atlas” with a release date of the 19th. “Atlas Unplugged” will feature all of the tracks on “Atlas” EP except one, but contain two more songs in total.
Speaking of his start in music, Underhill writes, “I started watching concert videos when I was nine years old and my parents started taking me to Springsteen concerts as they are big ‘Bruce’ fans. I remember thinking how cool it would be cool to do that. I starting taking guitar lessons, then wrote my first song at 14. Then songs starting flowing as my way of expressing my emotions, frustrations and feelings growing up. I started exploring every genre of music and it has become big part of my life and always will be regardless of where my music career takes me.”
“Atlas” by Luke Underhill is available online worldwide beginning 12 May 2015, produced by famous UK producer Stuart Epps (Elton John, Robbie Williams, George Harrison, Oasis).
