Bringing live music to Grafton

LUKE Gough is Grafton born and bred.

After spending time away studying music production in Lismore, Luke was contemplating a move to the big smoke to chase his music career.

"It was really dead music-wise in Grafton and I felt like I was being forced towards the city," said Luke.

"Then an opportunity came up to teach guitar at the Clarence Valley Conservatorium."

Having seized upon that chance, things started to fall Luke's way and now he is doing everything he can to rejuvenate Grafton's live music scene.

Luke is managing entertainment at the Great Northern Hotel and has been hosting travelling and local bands for the past couple of months.

Luke's background in heavy metal has helped him secure some local and national hard acts, but the venue is hosting sounds from all genres.

"We're trying all sorts of different music, anything that is interesting and people are keen to hear," said Luke

Luke is also working in music production in Grafton and has been involved in the writing, recording, mixing, mastering or producing of four albums in the past two years.
