About Luke

As a landmark singer/songwriter in the Canadian indie landscape, Luke Doucet has made his name as a first-rate guitarist and creative force, with four full-length solo albums to date on Toronto’s Six Shooter Records. The Toronto Star named his 2008 release, Blood’s Too Rich, as the Number One Music Moment of the Year and has referred to him as "the best young guitarist in the country."

As an accomplished producer and respected voice, Doucet’s involvement in all aspects of the craft has built a creative lodging for himself and other artists on Six Shooter Records.
