We flippin’ love Luke Rainsford. Their music is so honest and open, and they also happen to be one of the loveliest humans in the world. From their 2016 album ‘I’m Nothing Like My Dad Turned Out To Be‘ right up to latest single ‘Learning to Cope with Guilt‘, Luke’s music often centres around mental health. We love the idea of using music & lyrics as a creative way of getting stuff off your chest. But what is it outside music that helps Luke? Find out below! 👇
Over the last 6 or 7 years, I’ve been really interested in Dungeons and Dragons, and over the last year especially, in a world where staying in touch with friends has become a difficult task in and of itself, immersing myself into the roleplaying experience with some of my best friends has been something that has really kept me going. The idea of being able to escape into a fantasy world of our own creation, telling stories, making memories and fighting dragons and monsters and evil stuff in general is something that really scratches that “nerd itch”, and being able to see my friends over a Discord call every week really adds to the experience. I’ve been playing with friends from bands I haven’t seen in a long time, and being able to keep in touch and hang out virtually together outside of music has been such a blessing.
Luke’s latest release ‘Learning to Cope’ is available now! Go stream it wherever you stream music, and you can pick up a copy here.
