Luke Wesley grew up in tiny Shelby, Ohio before moving to New York in his early 20s, and credits his family and small-town upbringing with shaping his musical stylings. “Between my parents and my 3 older brothers, I had a lot of differing musical tastes coming out of the home,” he says. “A big family helps like that.”
Wesley’s goals on Because We Never Talk About It are modest. “All we are trying to do with the album is make a really solid pop album that isn’t super-overproduced and remains true to the live shows,” he says. And through collaborations with producers Casey Shea and Peter Block, he manages to do just that. “At its heart, this album is simply a very well constructed pop album.”
