Welcome to Luke's site! It's the one-stop place for info and for contacting the lyricist, musician and composer that Big City Rhythm and Blues Magazine calls an “intelligent musician” and an “invested storyteller," and who Mulebone has called "hard to forget." Here there will be news on Music that Luke is working on, concerts he'll be playing, and work that he is recording. Also, if you are interested in having him play for your festival, business, private event, or for jams, please use the contact tab to send Luke a heads up, and he can let you know about rates. Thanks for stopping by, and if you get a chance please check out Luke's music, and the music that he has recorded! If you would like to see videos of him performing, you can check out his Facebook page www.facebook.com.lukewoltanskimusic. If you are tech savvy and have Spotify, please give him a follow as well. It's that little teeny green box underneath all of the albums!

Luke's third studio album, A Sketch of a Man, is now available at all places where music is found! This album is another guitar solo-heavy project that lists as a New Age work. That being said, there are several songs with full lyrics as well on the project, featuring artists like Dalton Sala, Domine Clemons, and Morgan Arrowood. This is also the first album that Luke has ever recorded over a two year period. Some songs were recorded in his Plainwell studio, some in the attic of a cabin in Leelanau County MI, and some in a practice room at Hillsdale College. See if you can tell where each song was recorded at!

UpNorthMedia was kind enough to come down to Hillsdale and talk to myself and the legendary guitar player Dalton Sala. They interviewed us, and recorded a performance we gave just for the station. If you are interested in finding that video, then look no further! The picture just below should redirect you to UpNorthMedia's website where the video is. Thanks so much to them, and to YOU for your support!
