During the spring of his sophomore year Luke was dismissed from student housing and academics as a result of underage drinking misdemeanors. Inspired by a Kid Cudi song, "Cudi Zone," Luke then wrote the song, "Feels Like (Whoa)" which articulated where he perceived his life was. In this same season Luke recorded eight demo tracks with his friend Mitch. One year later Luke put them online and began performing the songs live. Shortly after releasing his work Luke was greatly impacted by a co-worker, who became a dear friend, named Jason. This relationship led Luke to the revelation that not only could you know Jesus but you can know Him now, moment by moment. In the following year Luke joined the worship team at his new found church body, where he was introduced to intentional community living.Over the next two years Luke studied at McNally Smith College of Music in Saint Paul, Minnesota. He put together social justice events that partnered with area artists to raise awareness for local poverty, sexual trafficking, and such causes. In the end of this season of life Luke partnered with Youth With a Mission (YWAM) to learn, in a greater capacity, how to impact society for the greater good. This began in Australia with a return to the States months later for a lecture phase of discipleship training. At the start of the new year Luke spent two months between Athens, Greece and Prague, Czech Republic with YWAM. While there a correspondence with an acquaintance made at the church he'd visited during his lecture phase began. Luke had encountered this girl a few times on holiday breaks in months prior to his trip and had expressed an established interest in more intimate relationship with her. She turned him down days before he left the States. Once Luke was overseas she reached out via text, asking to be provided a list of names of people Luke was meeting on street outreach so that she could partner in his ministry by praying for them. This deeply moved him and set in motion a natural unfolding of growing intimacy with her. By the time he had transitioned with his team from the first city to the next on outreach, Luke had already purposed himself to move to Milwaukee, WI upon his return to the U.S. and graduation from YWAM's discipleship training school (DTS) to be near Chelsea. Sharing this news with her, and having it gladly received, Luke shortly thereafter proposed that they get married within six months time. She heartily agreed. Two weeks after his completion of the DTS, on Good Friday, in a public park in downtown Milwaukee, the whole community being invited along with their friends and family, Luke and Chelsea were married. From an early age Chelsea was naturally gifted in many creative mediums, including music. Never having done any serious performing but with dreams of sharing her voice with the public someday, she was always exploring the capabilities of her voice, harmonizing with the radio and in corporate worship settings. During their correspondence in February, Luke sent Chelsea a recording of a song he had written. Late that same night she spent some time creating a voice memo recording of her harmonies layered over his song. She sent it to him and, upon listening to it at the start of his new day, a lifelong dream of Luke's was realized as he knew he'd get to not only do music, but do it with his future wife.When I was in my first week of music business school at McNally Smith College of Music under Craig Rice, he had prompted the class on what album takes an artist the longest. We all looked at each other. He then said, "The first one, because it takes from birth until whenever the album is complete."Craig had managed Prince and been involved with other tastemakers of culture, and I have been privileged to be around many influential people in my life. Over ten years of writing, there are many people I could thank. I really do tell specific inspirational stories of how these friends and mentor figures changed my life, but you'll just have to follow along with what Chelsea and I do in our lives to hear them.
