Here's Luke's own summing up of his style: "I'm just a very English sounding young fellow tinkling along on a piano."
"The entertainment factor behind most bands' formative story is in the recruitment of various members over the years.
That is probably why my story is rather plain.
You could argue that I was formed at some point between 1987 when I was born, 1991 when I started learning the piano, and 2003 when I started writing songs.

Most likely it was 2003, when I became involved in the local music scene, and played in a few bands (Flatulent Mindy And The Badgers, neitherbignorclever, and ALOMO).
I dabbled in guitar playing in bands, and also song writing, but it all came to the fore in the spring of 2005 when I fancied playing solo as well as playing piano in ALOMO.
So I did it - and people liked it.
So now I play solo, and in ALOMO, and I write lots of songs that recall the classic pop of The Beatles and Elton John, blended with the more modern song writing techniques of Ben Folds and The Rocket Summer.
Essentially, I'm just a very English sounding young fellow tinkling along on a piano as well." - Luke Leighfield
