Born in Minneapolis Minnesota, Luke began writing songs at the age of 16 and composed all of the music on his debut album, Be still, before he graduated high school. He continued to write music throughout his college years and in 2010 he recorded and released, Be still, followed by his second album, No Other Way, in 2011. In 2012 Luke’s intricate guitar style and warm captivating vocals attracted three-time Grammy Award-winning artist Ben Harper. Luke then opened for Harper’s first-ever solo acoustic tour in both the U.S. and Canada.
Harper went on to produce Spehar’s third album, All Is Gift in 2015. Following the release Luke married his wife Elizabeth and together, as newlyweds, they toured the country. This adventure was the catalyst for Spehar’s fourth release, The Pilgrim (2018). Together with their three young daughters, Luke and Elizabeth live in St. Paul, MN.
Catholic United Financial is partnering with Catholic musicians to spread the message of music, worship and unity during June 2020.
Every Tuesday in June, Catholic United will livestream a concert by a Catholic musician/band that is free for all to view. During these concerts, you will be invited to learn about and donate to a charity selected by the artists.
Your virtual ticket is FREE for all performances. Each musician/band will select a charity of their choice which will be featured during the concert. Please consider a freewill donation to these charities to show your support for their efforts in COVID-19 relief. Knowing that these are difficult economic times, Catholic United is excited to sponsor this effort to help both musicians and charities. We will offer a matching grant, totaling $1,000, to match donations made during the concerts through our giving portal.
