If There Ain’t A Heaven is Luke Frees’s Single
As soon as I pressed the play button I immediately realized that I was dealing with an artist out of the ordinary.
The theatrical and refined compositional approach reminded me of a musical. This music could be the soundtrack of a Disney movie.
The musical arrangements are very well thought out and manage to relax you and take you to heaven giving you a moment of intense emotions.
The chord progression is never obvious or banal. This song conveys sincere emotions. Luke Frees has great creativity and passion within him and he is able through music to express deep emotions that speak directly to the heart and soul of the listener.
Surely we are dealing with an artist with a great compositional experience behind him who produces music of the highest quality.
Luke Frees is a songwriter, performer, photographer, and producer based in Chicago. After years of writing songs on his own and with various bands, Luke studied songwriting and production at Berklee College of Music. Luke wrote, recorded, and produced a solo EP in early 2017, entitled After the Rain, which was heavily influenced by David Bowie and Nick Cave.
In the fall of 2017, Luke formed a band called The Cotones with three friends from school. Their debut album, Imaginary Friends, was released in March of 2020 on Upsurge Records. His first full-length solo album, The Lost Weekend, was released on May 5, 2019. Luke released his sophomore solo album, Some Easy Blood, in October of 2020, after the breakup of The Cotones. This album draws influences from artists like Tom Waits and The Cure, and tells the narrative of a collapsing relationship against the backdrop of the Coronavirus Pandemic.
