This week on the show I’m featuring San Francisco-based musician Luke Sweeney! He has quite a story behind him as he learned to play the guitar at the age of 13 after a tragic bicycle accident that left his jaw wired shut. Since then though, he’s started a solo project as the frontman, most recently releasing 2013’s Ether Ore, but with a new album, Adventure: Us, slated for an October 14th release. Luckily for you, I’ll be playing music from both of those releases. One of the singles from the latter, “Miss Me?”, has a wildly entertaining video that we discuss where in order to win the heart of a beach babe, he auditions unsuccessfully for Bay Area bands and hilarity ensues. I spoke with Sweeney in the SF early morning when he was getting ready to walk his pet pig. I’ll let you be the judge of his character…enjoy!

As always, don’t forget to read up on the Discovery Artist feature on Luke Sweeney!
