Singer/Songwriter Luke Friend is one of the latest artists to enter the Farida stable. We headed down to a studio in Watford to meet Luke and to show him a selection of our beautiful Farida guitars.
Luke has been writing and recording his debut album, due for release in 2015, with producer Dan Lancaster and Lower Than Atlantis frontman Mike Duce.
With a love for parlour sized guitars, Luke instantly fell for the Farida M-26E finished in a dark Vintage Sunburst. The Farida M-26E parlour guitar features a B-Band A1.2 pickup, solid cedar top with striped rosewood back and sides a mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard.
Luke has just finished a UK arena tour where he was supporting UK pop-rock band The Vamps.
Rising to fame as a runner-up on the 2013 X-Factor, Luke went on to win ‘Rising Star of 2014’ in the Best of 2013 awards. In October 2014 he signed with RCA Records to release his debut record and posted a lyric video for the first single “Take On The World” onto YouTube.
