Originally from Lafayette, Louisiana, Luke Crimiel wears many hats – singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, and dancer. He recently released his self-produced debut record 11th Street, which has already accumulated thousands of streams, and he’s now following it up with a new single. Show Me is a vibrant pop/R&B track that serves as a great introduction to Crimiel’s style.
The track takes a minimalist approach, but in this case, less is most definitely more. The fast-paced and varied percussion and melodic synths make up the majority of the instrumentation, but they’re the perfect accompaniment to the explosion of vocal harmonies in the chorus. It’s well-balanced, dynamic, and memorable.
One of the highlights of this work is Crimiel’s vocals – his warm tones lend a layer of authenticity to his work. He brings power where it counts but navigates challenging riffs effortlessly; this is a mark of a very skillful vocalist.
Luke Crimiel is writing and performing at a level that is far beyond his years. His music is catchy, well-produced, smartly written, and expertly performed – it’s the whole package. Show Me is a stellar example of his emerging talent and a perfect fit for any playlist with pop, soul, or R&B influences. Crimiel has set the bar high for his future releases, but if his work on this latest single is any indicator, we expect that the sky is the limit for this incredibly talented artist.
