28 year old Colombian native Luke Carlos O’Reilly was born with a passion for music. His love for Jazz specifically has elevated him to be one of few consistently in demand jazz pianists in the Philadelphia area, where he currently resides.
In 2004, Luke received his bachelor's degree in Jazz Piano Performance from Temple University's Esther Boyer College of Music. After spending time on the road with such jazz greats as Curtis Fuller, Dave Valentin, Red Halloway, Slide Hampton, Nicolas Payton, Bobby Watson, and Billy Paul, Luke finally independently released his debut album 'Living In The Now' in February of 2011.
On this album, Luke expresses his love for jazz, Latin and soul music, as well as spoken word poetry. He is accompanied on the album by several extremely talented young Philadelphia musicians, whom he will be bringing with him to his March 15th D.C. Release party at Twins Jazz Club.
