Luke’s folk music may be catchy and comforting, but behind the melodies, it tackles serious issues regarding fossil fuel expansion along the coast of BC.
Video production by Kyle Gomes, Ashli Forbes, Joana Lapurga, Zachary Moss, and Marshall Lu.
The Luke Wallace Trio is comprised of Luke Wallace, Karen Hefford and Katie Green. Over the last two years, Luke has released two records and two independent documentaries to raise awareness about the threat of fossil fuel expansion along Canada’s west coast. Through his music, Luke strives to amplify the voices of those communities most impacted by oil and gas development. Further, Luke aims to connect coastal communities around an overarching respect for the natural processes that sustain the beautiful people of the west coast. Luke has performed all over BC and Canada and recently traveled to Paris for COP21 where he performed at a number of conference related events.
