Luke Steele was born into music – growing up in Perth his childhood involved watching his guitarist dad play in pubs and clubs and, when he was old enough, joining him onstage at weekly blues jam nights.
By 19 he’d formed indie band The Sleepy Jackson, with whom he toured the world and received widespread critical acclaim. His big break, though, came with Empire Of The Sun, the outfit he formed in the mid-2000s with Nick Littlemore from electronic outfit PNAU, and whose song "Walking On A Dream" became an international hit.
We talk about all of these different projects in this interview, as well as Luke's upbringing in Perth, the importance of his faith and much more.
