Luke Volkert is a Brooklyn based Composer, Producer, and Songwriter. He is a graduate of Oberlin College & Conservatory where he studied music theory, composition, and production with famed composers Elizabeth Ogonek, Willem Jeths, and Jay Ashby. Outside of his college education, he honed his musical abilities by working at studios such as Headroom Studios in Philadelphia, performing and touring, and producing music for himself and others for the past 8 years. Luke’s unique combination of musical and technical skills has helped inform his work across multiple genres.
