Luke Gallant, a 24 year-old singer-songwriter originally from PEI, has a sound that could turn a gathered room to stillness. His sound blends intoxicating honesty and sincerity. His soft guitar and vocals recall folk and blues, lending his music an essence that resembles a cross between Ben Harper and Ben Howard.

An engineering student at Dalhousie, Gallant uses his music to emit a personal freedom that breaks the rigid boundaries of his engineering studies. He is inspired by his family, friends and past loves, as well as the emotions he’s taken in from his own experiences. Growing up on the island of PEI has inspired his music with the salty atmosphere of the ocean and water. There is a quiet confidence evident in his melodies that suggest a one-with-nature mentality.

His digital album can be found on online at and he performs in a band that can be found online at In the summer, keep an eye out for his regular performances at The Economy Shoe Shop.
