Luca Fogale: Feel It

The BC songsmith delivers the goods in restrained yet soulful fashion.

Luca Fogale: Feel It

By Kerry Doole

Luca Fogale: Feel It (Independent/Amelia Artists): This Burnaby BC singer/songwriter released his second album, Nothing is Lost, on Sept. 18, and its earlier singles gained real traction. They have already exceeded 9 million streams on DSPs and are complemented by five official videos, all self-released via his management team Amelia Artists (the group behind Tegan and Sara, Bedouin Soundclash etc).


Feel It is the most recent of those singles, and it is accompanied by an evocative video filmed by Sam Lynch, who is also one of the Slaight Juno Masterclass finalists from this past year.

On this cut, Fogale's soulful voice delivers the goods in a restrained, almost hushed manner, one that brings Rhye to mind.

He has been featured on several major playlists, including Spotify Contemporary Blend, and NPR’s New Music Friday, and his music has been featured on film and television shows including Grey’s Anatomy and CSI: Los Angeles.

Writing for Apple Music, Stuart Berman called the album “deeply philosophical indie-folk hymns with an expanded palette of atmospheric R&B arrangements, gospel-gilded ascensions, and cinematic synth textures.”  An artist to watch carefully.
