After graduating from the 2004 Talent Development Program, performing lead roles in the 2003/2004 school spectacular, becoming the lead singer of Channel Nine’s Footy Show band “The Vipers”, being nominated for a MOE award for best new performer in the 2007 AWGIE award winning one man musical “Shakespearean Idol” and becoming the last person to re-record Channel Seven’s classic Home and Away theme song, Luke Dolahenty received news that he would be the first person to win the Talent Development Program’s “Bound For Broadway” music theatre scholarship. The scholarship took the then 19 year old on an all expenses paid 2 week trip to New York City where he met and worked with some of music theatre’s biggest names including Stephen Schwartz (Pippin, Wicked). Coming from a background of contemporary song writing and recording, Luke had little experience with the blinding lights and robust show stoppers of the music theatre stage, but saw an opportunity and took it. He quickly began studying the history of music theatre, soaking in the rich archives of Broadway show after Broadway show, learning the names of the famous directors, composers, choreographers and performers he was shortly to meet and work with.
The experience of travelling to New York City was so powerful for the young 19 year old, the next year he obtained the American “visa of extraordinary talent” and left his home in Camden, N.S.W. to live amongst the hurricane avenues and endless skyscrapers of Manhattan. There, he worked as a songwriter and musician performing regularly in some of Manhattan’s most renowned clubs such as The Bitter End, Cafe Vivaldi, The Living Room and Pianos. Luke’s most fondly remembered gig was a weekly residency at the underground Australian bar Eight Mile Creek, found behind the doors of what looked to be a storage seller in the heart of Soho. Amongst the shroud of many late nights, Luke met and experienced many characters. In the earliest hours of one winter morning, Chaka Khan’s record producer spent hours listening to Luke sing his songs, only to interrupt and begin producing them right there in the bar. Another time, Luke found himself singing a duet with Australian star Guy Sebastian to the tune of Al Green’s classic hit “Let’s Stay Together”. On yet another unsuspecting New York summer night, Luke ran into Silver Chair’s Daniel Johns and invited him in for a drink…or two.
In November 2009, Luke reunited with two friends from the Talent Development Program and formed the band Sons of Summer. After Eight Mile Creek would close, the group would stay back in the bar writing songs and rehearsing. In January 2010, the group travelled to the colossal southern Chinese city, Shenzhen. For 6 months, 6 nights a week, 4 hours a night, Luke and his band mates performed on the stage of Shenzhen’s most revered rock n roll nightclub, The True Color Bar. The young band used the experience to hone their skills and continue writing. After 6 months of relentless work, it was time to move forward. Decided by a coin toss, the group packed their bags and moved to the music capital of the world, Nashville, TN. Within weeks they had begun recording their debut record with producer/mix engineer Rob Feaster (Travis Tritt, Billy Joel, Johnny Cash, Whitney Houston, Bachelor Girl) at the famous Castle Recording Studios. Their band members included the likes of Matt Sherrod on drums (Crowded House, Bec) David Labruyere on bass (John Mayer, Shawn Mullins) and Billy Livsey on keyboards (Ronnie Lane/Slim Chance, Tina Turner).
The first single off the record “The One I Love The Most” was picked up by NBC’s Channel 4 Nashville and used as the station’s 2012 summer promo theme song.
In true rock n roll tradition, 2 years after they had begun, the band parted ways leaving Luke to continue on in Nashville. He began working on new material for a new recording yet was plagued by somewhat of a creative haze. One afternoon, upon finishing lunch with good friend and bass player Mark Greenwood, Luke helped Mark run some errands. The two drove to a studio in the heart of Nashville’s famous music row and walked straight into the middle of a private Garth Brooks’ recording session. Mark introduced Luke to Garth and after spending time talking, Garth asked Luke if he would like to get together and write a song. Needless to say, this was all the inspiration necessary to dispel any creative lull. Luke began writing and working and soon had enough songs to record an album. Working with Billy Nobel on Keyboards (Faith Hill and Tim McGraw) and Mark Greenwood on bass (Garth Brooks), Luke wrote and recorded the “Lead My Heart Acoustic EP”. Scheduled to be released in January 2014, Luke has returned home to Australia to tour and promote the EP, before heading back overseas to take Garth Brooks up on his offer.
The “Lead My Heart Acoustic EP” is a stripped back yet powerful collection of songs and stories inspired by Luke’s travels over the past few years.
