Raised by Eagles’ singer/songwriter Luke Sinclair has been busy over the lockdown, recording his debut ‘solo’ album, Heavy Dreams, which is OUT NOW & AVAILABLE RIGHT HERE!!  (The first song, ‘Boots To The Grave,’ was released last week). While it is being referred to as a solo album it goes under the moniker of The Luke Sinclair Set, a name suggested by Van Walker and one that signals a lot about Sinclair’s attitude.

Almost a reluctant front man, Sinclair is one of the finest songwriters in what has become a burgeoning Americana scene centred in Melbourne. After time in the Idle Hoes and three acclaimed albums with Raised By Eagles from 2013 to 2017 – as well as a showcase gig with the band at the Americana Festival in Nashville – Sinclair went through a couple of emotionally turbulent years that were then topped off by the past six months of lockdown. For Sinclair, the recording sessions for the new album have been a way to refocus on music.

Apart from Sinclair on guitar and vocals, the Set consists of Zane Lynd on bass, guitar, piano and harmony vocals; Matt Dixon on lead guitars and drummer Liam O’Leary. (The quartet did a few gigs prior to the lock down previewing the new songs). They are augmented by Kelly Day playing synth, doing some harmony vocals, as well as arranging a choir; and, Simon Burke from The Meltdown on piano and organ. Roger Bergodaz not only co-produced with Sinclair at Union Street Studios but also adds percussion and piano edits.
