Sometimes in life you meet incredibly talented people. Sometimes you are lucky enough to have them become friends. I first met Luke Clerkin many years ago. I remember first interviewing him on my radio show and thinking even at that time that he would become something special.
Last Wednesday Luke headlined his first gig in Whelan’s in Dublin. I don’t think I have ever been more proud of anyone in my life. Luke is truly talented and has worked his ass off to get where he is today. I remember having the conversation about his gig challenge that he embarked on a while back. He was going to do 300 odd gigs in a year. Everyone thought he was mental but I knew that he would do it. I knew he had the determination and the drive to succeed.
Luke is not just one of the most talented people I know, but he is also one of the most genuine, down to earth and nicest people I have had the good fortune to meet and now call my friend. His life is not just about music but it is also about helping other people and ensuring that everyone in his life is happy and has the support they need.
He writes all his own music and the song below is one of my favourite ones. So I implore you to give it a listen and follow Luke on his journey because I know that he will make a huge impact on this world and he deserves every success he gets 🙂 xx
