Released in June 2023, "Frequent Flyer" is the second song and music video made in collaboration with young people from Sydney Children's Hospital Network's ChIPS program. Thanks to Accessible Arts, Health Infrastructure NSW and our private donors for making this project possible.
The music video for "Wake up Call". Written in a single Zoom session and recorded just before the big Sydney lockdown on 2021. This track expresses the rage and frustration young people feel at being told what they "should" be doing or feeling about their chronic health condition.
A short documentary featuring interviews with ChIPS members in the recording studio. This was a great way for us to showcase their personalities and their insights about the songwriting process.
"A clammering power pop track that packs an emotional punch. Totally here for the ChIPS crew reclaiming their stories" - Dave Ruby Howe, Music Director of Triple J Unearthed
Made during the year of Covid, Luke's musical collaboration with the children of Lansvale Public School shows how a creative approach can promote empathy and lead to unexpected connections. The combination of documentary and music in this video is similar to the video content we will produce for "We Wrote That".
The aim of "We Wrote That" is to offer young people with chronic illness the same kind of unforgettable studio experience you see in this video, where children from migrant backgrounds sing songs about their history and identity, written in collaboration with Luke.

A delightful collaboration between Benny and The Vegetable Plot, with music and lyrics by Luke and animation by Benny.
Listen to the moving stories of these children, told in their own voices, with a simple but powerful musical backing. These tales of courage, sorrow and redemption emerged in conversation with Luke in 2019.
Luke Escombe's song about a week in hospital that forever changed his life has been heard at conferences and events all over Australia. These are the types of unique perspectives and experiences we hope to capture with "We Wrote That"
