Innersoul Live **LIVE SOUL MUSIC** [TUESDAY – 26.08.2014]
featuring GARY PINTO AND LUKE KOTERAS.
InnerSoul Entertainment & Play Bar present Innersoul LIVE.
Innersoul LIVE is a showcase of music artists in Sydney. Held fortnightly, Innersoul LIVE provides a platform for the next generation of artists in the Australian soul movement to have their music heard. Set in the inner city creative hub of Surry Hills, Innersoul Live at PLAY BAR sees carefully selected artists present an acoustic set of their original music in an intimate setting.
With the Australian soul movement out in full force, thanks to the international success of artists like the GRAMMY nominated Hiatus Kaiyote, Innersoul LIVE is here to keep that momentum going locally and beyond. Defying genre boundaries and stereotypes to cover everything from nu-soul, raw and real hip hop and reggae to soulful Rhythm & Blues, Innersoul LIVE is your mid-week dose of soul that will have you transfixed by the talent on display.
Artists that have previously showcased at Innersoul LIVE include ARIA nominated singer/songwriter Jeremy Gregory, Billie McCarthy, Ron E Jones, Tabitha Ojeah, Michael Duchesne (The Voice) and Chantae Cann (featured vocalist with GRAMMY winning Snarky Puppy and GRAMMY nominated The Foreign Exchange), Thandiwe Phoenix and more.
Come down, kick back, and let yourself be moved by the musicality of our local artists at Innersoul LIVE.

LUKE KOTERAS //
Sydney’s Luke Koteras has carved his acoustic infused sound from years of touring and writing music for a bunch of Australian and international musicians. He captivates audiences with a unique blend of styles and influences as seen on the Voice Australia in 2014. Luke performs in an electro-acoustic style that encapsulates elements of acoustic, funk, dance, Rhythm & Blues with a slight jazz twist. His influences are also widespread; from Calvin Harris to Tommy Emmanuel – but one would describe his most recent tastes as a cross over between John Mayer and Ed Sheeran.
He has a great passion for writing & producing music. He has performed with various artists including: Renee Geyer, Joel Madden, David Ryan Harris, Ron e Jones, Michael Douchesne, Chris Sebastian, Lionel Cole, Diesel, John Stevens, Angry Anderson etc. Luke shares a soulful musical intuition when he performs on stage, allowing for a large scope of improvisation and unique musical contributions to his wide ranging repertoire. It came down to hard work and dedication that allowed him to tour the UK, Thailand, China and more recently an incredibly successful 3 month tour of North America.
Luke now has a range of albums available through iTunes and a range of clips available through U-tube. He is bringing a fresh Rhythm & Blues based approach to acoustic, soul/pop music fuelled by good times and a burning desire to succeed.
