Luke Doucet's fifth release on Six Shooter Records, Steel City Trawler, was rewarded with a Juno nomination for Adult Alternative Album. Described as "a late-'70sride to the grocery store in a big, gas-guzzling Lincoln Town Car," Steel City Trawler has attracted four-star reviews and earned a spot on the Globe and Mail's Best of 2010 list. Luke is known for The White Falcon, his band and signature unmistakable guitar.
Luke's previous albums have also won Canadian and international praise. Blood's Too Rich topped 2009's Best Of lists by The Independent in the UK and the Toronto Star. The record caught the attention of Nick Hornby, author of High Fidelity, who blogged twice about the record and included Luke in his 2008 Top Ten Playlist. Luke also landed #25 on Paste Magazine's Top 100 of the Year with the album Broken (and other rogue states). Broken received a Juno nomination for Adult Alternative Album of the Year (both 2011 and 2006 Adult Alternative Album Junos went to Neil Young).
From Winnipeg to Nashville, Cleveland to Hamilton, geography is a constant theme in Luke's songwriting. Luke is constantly on tour, overseas, across Europe and to South Africa, across Canada and the US, including tours with Blue Rodeo, James Blunt, Josh Rouse and the Cayamo Cruises with all manners of legendary artists. He regularly showcases at conferences from SXSW, the AMAs, NXNE, PopComm and CMW. As well, Luke has recently toured with Sarah McLachlan as her guitarist throughout the Lilith festival circuit. Luke's impeccable instincts have also steered multiple projects by fellow Six Shooters, and Luke has produced records by NQ Arbuckle and Melissa McClelland, as well as Rose Cousins.
