Arthur Valentine is the eclectic pop project of Cork based singer/songwriter and producer Luke Aston. Spanning from delicate, fragile folk to jazz and R&B inspired pop, Arthur explores universal themes of love, fear, faith and deleting/re-downloading Instagram time and time again.
Arthur Valentine showcases Aston's unique and honest approach to songwriting, ever-endeavouring to maintain a keen sensibility for melody and honest, poetic lyricism.
Arthur’s previous releases have received praise and positive reviews from Ireland’s biggest reviewers and blogs such as The Irish Times, Nialler9, District Magazine, GoldenPlec, Lovin.ie and Indie Buddie. Arthur's music has received extensive airplay by the country’s biggest radio stations, with single "Dream About You" being chosen as RTE 2fm's track of the week by Stephen Bryne. His music has also been added to numerous Spotify curated playlists.
Arthur Valentine has gigged extensively around the country, with a number of headline slots at The Button Factory’s Crowbar and Bodytonic’s Pot Duggans in Ennistimon. Additionally, he supported Sorcha Richardson in Cyprus Avenue in 2019.
