Vibrant, funky, passionate soul
Hailing from the streets of Memphis, soul music flows through Gedeon Luke’sveins in rainbow-colored hues. Weaned on the gospel-infused sounds of Sly Stone, Curtis Mayfield and Al Green and inspired by the rock ‘n’ roll passion of The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, Gedeon crashes through the boundaries of music and society to bring love, peace and soul to the world. Fighting through childhood poverty, rejecting the gang violence and drug abuse that surrounded him, Gedeon looked to music, family and faith as his beacon. Refusing to be hardened by the mean streets, Gedeon brings pure joy and passion to his music and his life. He’s raw. He’s real. He follows no trends. His first full-length collection of music, Live Free and Love, features his band, The People, in a collage of 11 songs reflecting the unbridled passion of a modern-day preacher spreading the gospel of love.
