Luke Top was born in Tel Aviv, Israel and raised in Los Angeles, CA. He has dedicated the last two decades to recording and performing music. A majority of that time (2008-2015), was spent as the lead singer of Fool’s Gold, a band that has enjoyed international acclaim for their cathartic live shows and seductive experiments in global psychedelia. When Fool’s Gold disbanded, Luke shifted gears musically, going solo with the release of his full length album “Suspect Highs” in 2016. SPIN magazine called the album “a deeply earnest and deeply honest confessional.” The opportunity to play as a touring member of the band Electric Guest presented itself in 2017, so Luke joined up in support their second album, “Plural.” It was during this period that Luke partnered with longtime friend, Jason Quever of Papercuts, to open a recording studio in the Arts District of Downtown Los Angeles. In this space, Luke found the freedom to explore a variety of bold new musical tangents, further refining his unique brand of songwriting and producing. The resulting body of work is collected in a new 5 song EP entitled “The Dumb-Show” to be released digitally and on vinyl by Grand Gallop and Org Music on 10/19/18. The first single “I’ve Been Workin” is releasing digitally on 07/17/18. It features guest musicians Kyle Crane on drums (Daniel Lanois/Neko Case) and Seth Ford-Young (Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros) on upright bass.
