Shadow Bones aka Singer/songwriter Luke Williams has been writing and recording songs for over 20 years. With international chart success and music used globally Luke has a wealth of stories from playing to audiences of over 30,000, partying with Primal Scream and being asked to have a fight with Liam Gallagher at a fashion shoot.
After years of imitating a rock star life Luke confronted his inner demons and began his path to sobriety. Celebrating eight years sober, he is a passionate supporter of mindful drinking and various charities helping people on their journey to recovery.
Shadow Bones was born in lockdown and was a challenging time for us all. This opened a door to Luke’s past, unlocking old demons. Luke said: “Writing songs in lockdown was cathartic, a means of therapy. It transported me back to a dark period of time I had left behind when I was battling sobriety, in the early years of recovery. Being in lockdown gave me that time to reflect on life, what’s been, appreciate what you do have and what you don’t. I never thought a bag of pasta would mean so much to me.”
Luke to date has had three unofficial releases in 2021 as Shadow Bones ‘Our Story’, ‘Love Is A Reason’ and ‘Everlasting Glow’. These all gained immediate attention and support from the likes of BBC Introducing, making him a featured artist and track of the day, as well as high praise from CLASH Magazine.
2022 has already been a busy year with a string of new releases ‘Better view’, ‘Over and Out’ and ‘Only a Dream’ all ahead of his debut album, set for release at the end of the year.
