The music made by Luke Roberts is wide in scope and spare in structure. It is as universal as it is personal - if you have to label it, the right stamp to put on it might be ‘redemptive blues’. Roberts’ songs, while deeply personal in origin, touch on universal life experiences and emotions. ‘Sunlit Cross’ is unwaveringly honest and raw, as Roberts gets closer than ever to his true self: a person who looks past the dark truths to see a real light.

‘Sunlit Cross’ features Kurt Vile, Stephen Tanner (Harvey Milk and Music Blues), John Neff (Drive-By Truckers) and Creston Spiers (Harvey Milk).

‘Sunlit Cross’ was recorded at RonnieJone$ound with Kyle Spence (who, in addition to recording tracks for Kurt Vile’s ‘B’lieve I’m Goin Down’, also drums with Vile and Harvey Milk). Spence worked closely with Roberts to make the record sonically richer than ever before.

CD version in 4 panel mini-LP style gatefold package. LP version pressed on virgin vinyl with free digital download coupon.

Initial copies are pressed on clear vinyl.
