Gedeon Luke & The People


Hailing from the streets of Memphis, soul music flows through Gedeon Luke’s veins in rainbow colored hues. Weaned on the gospel infused sounds of Sly Stone, Curtis Mayfield and Al Green and inspired by the rock ‘n roll passion of The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, Gedeon and his band The People are here to crash through the boundaries of music and society, to bring Love, Peace and Soul to the world.


Fighting through childhood poverty, rejecting the gang violence and drug abuse that surrounded him, Gedeon looked to music, family and faith as his beacon. Refusing to be hardened by the mean streets, Gedeon brings pure joy and passion to his music and his life.


His debut record, “Live Free and Love” was cut old school style, throwing his band The People and special guests in a room and laying it down live. It follows no trend. It’s Love, Peace and Soul. It’s Gedeon Luke.


What people are saying about Gedeon Luke:

” Live Free is a sure throwback, the track delivers seven flavors of sunny soul, mixed with a bluesy, almost Sam & Dave kind of strut.”-OKPLAYER

“All The Time In The World To Funk Around” – Daytrotter

“it’s raw. it’s real.  it follows no trend, it‘s love, peace and soul.  it’s Gedeon Luke.”-Band Of The Day

“Boundless in its energy and message of peace, love and hope, it is music that only an ‘old soul’ with an untempered spirit could create with such captivating brilliance.” –The Alternate Root

“Gedeon is on a mission to return soul music to itself, and to bring the people along with him.” -Soul Train

“Have a listen to his music, and you’ll instantly at peace with all the outside noise.”- A-Sides with Jon Chattman

“So why should you Live Free & Love? Simple. Music this glorious – like Kravitz, Amy Winehouse, D’Angelo, Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings and The Heavy before him – honors and refreshes a classic sound that needs to return at the forefront of modern music. Questlove’s series of essays, How Hip Hop Failed Black America, discusses why our culture needs to think beyond the macho posturing. female objectification and wealth glorification of modern rap as the cornerstone of our musical identity — albums like this aren’t our only salvation, but they are a step in the right direction.” -Popdose

Memphis raised Gedeon Luke has made a strong album full of raw funky soul power cut with his band live in the studio. This is another fresh new artist album like Jarrod Lawson (although musically different) that will raise our spirits over the future of the music. ‘Lend me your sunshine’ is a semi funky groove, ‘Echoes’, ‘Gray’, ‘The Healing’ and ‘I’ll be your friend’ are lovely mid tempo tracks highlighting Gedeon’s delicate voice. ‘Electric Playground’ is a strutting groove, but the killer cut is ‘Soul Child’ a horn backed hypnotic funky soul song with a strong hook line. A think another star may have arrived on the scene.
