Luka was born and raised in Japan and is currently settled in York. Her passions are music, art, and history and she especially finds beauty in the glamorous world of vintage culture and jazz.
Her unique singing background started in Nagauta (traditional Japanese music which accompanies the Kabuki theater). Later, Luka joined a jazz band in Japan. She fell in love not only with jazz songs but also the style: gorgeous dresses, perfect hair, make-up and charismatic personalities such as her idols Julie London and Peggy Lee.
Performing alongside professional jazz musicians, Luka’s rich, warm voice carries elegance with feelings. Featuring jazz standards with an air of romance, up-lifting swings, beautiful ballads, relaxing bossa nova and Latin pieces, Luka’s live sets are perfect for occasions requiring sophistication. Luka has performed in some of London's best 5 star hotels such as The Savoy Hotel, The Londoner Hotel and popular places such as Brasserie Zédel, Nightjar and Oriole bar.
Creative to her core, Luka has created a look and sound that brings glamor to every stage. Having graduated from London College of Fashion and worked as a professional make-up artist for 10 years, Luka styles her own hair and makeup for every performance. Much of her wardrobe is bespoke, sewing many of her stunning dresses herself.
In 2024, Luka released her first EP “Isn’t It Romantic?”. The EP celebrates her love of jazz. Simple but sophisticated sounds with a selection of love songs that inspire her. The album was recorded at the award winning Morningstar Studios in the US.
Add elegance to your occasion, Luka and her professional musicians will provide a truly special performance with a memory-making selection of songs.
