Hey, Sleeper is a singer-songwriter (sometimes band) from England
Taking influence from artists such as Elliott Smith, William Fitzsimmons, Iron and Wine, and Bright Eyes, the songs centre on simple chords, with a focus on thoughtful, rarely-rhyming lyrics and memorable vocal melodies.
Following the break-up of a band and the purchase of an eight-track recorder in 2010, Luke started posting songs online for his friends and family, and soon began receiving gig offers. Sometimes a solo affair, and sometimes surrounded by other musicians, Hey, Sleeper shows have been played across England in the two years since. The first demos also attracted the attention of ‚Pickup‘ magazine, naming Luke the best acoustic artist in their annual Unsigned Awards.
With a growing following, hundreds downloaded the online release of the 2012 EP ‚We Fell Asleep in Winter, and Woke Up in June‘. Thanks to airplay on BBC Introducing and several mentions in US music blogs, the songs are gaining attention here and across the pond.
