Luke Gullickson is a musician and writer based in New Mexico. His projects stretch from indie-folk songcraft toward broader and quieter forms of chamber music inspired by place, geography, language, literature, shamanism, and divination. The Chicago Tribune described his recent music as “a sonic wash of various intensities and allusions.” Luke plays piano and guitar with the infamous Grant Wallace Band (“spidery original bluegrass” — Steve Smith, New York Times) and releases peripatetic avant-troubadour songs under his own name and the moniker Golconda (“charmingly mysterious songs” — Will Robin, Bandcamp). He is also proprietor and cartographer-in-chief of Desert Rhodes, a roving outdoor piano sketchbook and inclusive micro-commissioning project.
