Info for Beating Heart Stories

Following the critical and commercial success of composer and pianist Luke Howard’s Open Heart Story album and its companion EP More Heart Stories, we are proud to present the release of an album of reworked versions of the original album entitled Beating Heart Stories. This rework album features new versions of the original album’s tracks created by Luke’s friends and collaborators including Ben Lukas Boysen, Hania Rani and Snorri Hallgrímsson. These new interpretations span the fields of electronic, pop, neoclassical and ambient music.

Hailing from Melbourne, Luke Howard is an Australian Music Prize-nominated composer whose music has been described as “absolutely heavenly” (Mary Anne Hobbs, BBC Radio 6 Music) and “an ambient masterclass” (Musos’ Guide), but no words can fully capture the potency of his enthralling compositions.

Luke Howard, piano

Luke Howard
studied classical piano as a child before graduating with honours from the Victorian College of the Arts. He was twice a finalist in the Montreux Jazz Festival Solo Piano Competition and has written music for both film and theatre.

In recent years Luke has opened for Benjamin Clementine and Ben Frost, and performed with artists as diverse as Lior and Jeff Mills. His music has been described as “totally sublime” (Headphone Commute, February 2014), “absolutely heavenly” (Mary Anne Hobbs, July 2013), and “cinematic in its approach” (The Age, October 2009).

Luke divides his time between Europe and Australia. In 2013 he released the Australian Music Prize long-listed record Sun, Cloud. Luke’s score to Where Do Lilacs Come From won Best Music for a Short Film at the 2014 APRA/AMCOS Screen Music Awards. His second solo album, Two Places, was released in April 2016.

This album contains no booklet.
