about

Ginny Luke's vibrant new EP "Dark Charade" is a musical blend of catchy hooks, edgy rock vocals, scorching electric violin and guitar, pulsing synth lines, and a thick acoustic orchestral sound amidst driving rock beats. The first single, “Time Bomb Tactics” explores the nature of a failed relationship, posing the question of ritualistic self destruction: “Time bomb tactics, army of lies/Did you mean to damage yourself more than me?”. The song features an electric violin solo during the bridge and an intro of acoustic violin harmonies with reverse-piano swells, representative of Ginny’s classical music background and integration of the violin into the pop/rock commercial world.

Ginny Luke, at the age of 21 has a prominent career, garnering attention from work with artists such as Will.I.Am, Meat Loaf, Snoop Dog, Dave Matthews Band, Ben Moody of Evanescence, Mike Kineally of Frank Zappa’s band, Alex Band of the Calling, Grammy award-winning producers Larrance Dopson of 1500 or Nothin Productions, Andre Harris of Dre&Vidal, and many others. Ginny began study of classical violin and piano at the age of three and began singing and performing in musical theater at the age of four. She began writing songs at the age of thirteen, having her first single produced by Christian Davis at fifteen when she moved to Los Angeles. Ginny continued her studies at the prestigious Interlochen Arts Academy, Musician’s Institute, and California Institute of the Arts. She produced the upcoming solo EP along with Jon Prince and Zach Fisher of Big Bad Music and Post. She is managed by Jon Edwards, owner and founder of Coffin Case.

Ginny is proudly endorsed by Fender and features a Fender FV3 electric violin in the video for “Time Bomb Tactics”. The video, shot by Harrison Sanborn, examines the demise of a relationship through a narrative of a couple, with Ginny singing a commentary expressing the female perspective of the disillusionment of the relationship. Sanborn comments, “the song seamlessly blends a familiar rock vibe with original cutting-edge string parts which leave a lasting impression...the whole idea behind the video was to show the intricacies and gritty details of a failing relationship in a way which is less literal and may not be what people necessarily want to see”. The video can be found on YouTube and Ginny’s official website www.ginnylukeonline.com. Ginny is a proud artist endorsee of the following companies: Fender, Trace Elliot, Coffin Case, Digitech, BOSS/Roland, D’Addarrio, Planet Waves, Fishman, and Pigtronix.
