Pieces - Luke Tuchscherer


About this product



The album, called Pieces, marks a return to Tuchscherer’s rocky roots

AMERSHAM, UK (MAY 2018): Luke Tuchscherer, the Bedfordian singer/songwriter now based in New York City, is to release his third album – called Pieces – through Clubhouse Records on 6 July 2018.

Pieces signals a return to the scorching roots rock of Luke’s music with previous band The Whybirds (which disbanded in 2017), bringing to mind artists such as Neil Young, Tom Petty and Bruce Springsteen.

Tuchscherer said: “My first two records were made while The Whybirds were still active, and so I felt it was important for them to be sonically separate from the band.

“Now the ‘birds have folded, I’ve gone back to a sound which is more quintessentially ‘me’. I’m sure I’ll do more acoustic stuff in the future, but for now I really wanted to plug in the electric guitar. I’m sure playing drums in Herd Behaviour [Luke’s alt.rock side project, which released the Animal Habitual album in 2017] helped free up my rock ‘n’ roll side a bit too.

“I was tempted to make this album self-titled, as the I feel the music best represents what I’m about as an artist, but in the end, I think the themes on this record are perhaps more cohesive than on any other album I’ve made, and I felt that the title track summed those themes up the best. Clue: No one ever said growing up would be like this.”

Produced by Luke Tuchscherer, the album was recorded and mixed by Chris Corney, before being mastered by Rodney Mills (Pearl Jam, REM, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Allman Brothers, Drive-By Truckers). The seven rock songs at the core of the album were recorded in one day (1 June 2017), while the acoustic ballads were recorded in just a few other sessions.

Luke will be playing the following UK dates in support of the record:

5th July: The Musician, Leicester
th July: The Ent Shed, Bedford (album launch party) 7th July: Maverick Festival, Suffolk
th July: The Green Note, London
th July: 81 Renshaw, Liverpool

Tuchscherer’s previous Clubhouse effort, Always Be True, was released on 2 June 2017, and reached #15 in the UK Country Chart and #25 in the Americana Chart. His debut, 2014’s You Get So Alone At Times That It Just Makes Sense, was self-released to wide acclaim.
