“I’ll try not to gush too much... it’s right up my alley; dreamy melodic pop with a twist” – Dean Hanson, Ball Park Music, 2018
Butternut Sweetheart is the music of producer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Luke Moseley. After many years working in the music industry in live production (Ball Park Music, Rüfüs, Paul Kelly, Sarah Blasko), recording (Emma Davis, Lady Lyon) and performing (Cassie Davis, RW Grace, Matt McHugh), Luke has crafted a project and sound inspired by a life of travel and a seaside escape. The unique dreamy indie/pop style of Butternut Sweetheart is influenced by modern boundary pushing writers Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Tuneyards and The Dirty Projectors, as well as older songwriting loves in Simon and Garfunkel and The Beatles.
‘Papercut’ is the mesmerising debut single from Butternut Sweetheart. Produced by Greg Walker (Machine Translations, Tiny Ruins, Paul Kelly), Papercut is out on February 15 and is accompanied by a compliment of east coast shows in Sydney, Thirroul, Canberra and Melbourne.
