Luke Whittemore and Gold Ship Announce Release of Northern Town

The highly anticipated debut release of Nottinghamshire songwriter, Luke Whittemore, is just around the corner! 'Northern Town' is set to release nationwide on June 10th, 2016, and we couldn't be more excited! 

Here are a few words about the mini-album, straight from Luke: 

"Well, the past year has been a series of decisions, a huge learning curve and some exciting new beginnings.
As many will know, I have been working on my debut release, a collection of songs that I have struggled with, nurtured and have seen grow in to something I never before imagined. I'm extremely pleased with the outcome and very excited to be able to share it with you.
I've been lucky to work with some great musicians on this record which in turn has pushed me to strive for better performances and to write better songs.
The whole process, start to finish has been a labour of love, yes there have been times that I wanted to scrap it all and give up on the whole thing, but when you're writing, recording, engineering and producing a record of your own, it can have this effect! 
Though I can say, I'm pleased that trusted my gut, kept on going and now we've finally reached the end OR just the beginning depending on how you look at it.
I have to say the guys at Gold Ship Records have been super supportive with my decisions and I'm really grateful to be part of the family! Things are really only just getting started! 
We finally have set an official release date for 'Northern Town' and you guys will be able to pre-order via iTunes very, very soon!
In the mean time, you can catch me on the road.
Looking forward to meeting you folks out there!"
