About Luke & Q
With a bold, urban edge and rich, dynamic vocals, the duo
Luke & Q are poised to bring the soul back to music, with an
uniqueness that’s distinctively their own. As natives of the
musical haven New Orleans, Luke & Q proudly represent the soulful
charm and depth of their city. Gospel, blues, jazz, country, and
hip-hop have all played a profound role in their diverse musical
upbringing.

One half of the duo is Luke Boyd, a vocal
powerhouse with fire and intensity stemming from his upbringing in New
Orleans’ tough downtown neighborhood known as the 7th Ward. His
raw, bad-boy appeal and strong vocals carry a passion reminiscent of
some his musical influences, such as Jodeci, H-Town and R.
Kelly.

Quinten Spears makes up the other half of
the duo. Simply known as Q, this velvety-smooth tenor brings a suave,
yet street vibe. Raised in the equally rough 3rd Ward area of uptown
New Orleans, Q is an unique mix of old-school cool and new-school
pizzazz, with musical influences from Michael Jackson, Justin
Timberlake and Usher.

Though raised in opposite
sides of town, Luke & Q’s love for music would inevitably
bring them together as members of their high school marching band.
They formed an instant friendship and joined forces with another band
member to create a musical group named “Upskale.” They
sang at many local events, including the renowned Bayou Classic and
quickly became a local sensation. The citizens of New Orleans knew
they had something special and it would be just a matter of time
before the rest of the world would know as well. A chance meeting
backstage at a Tyrese concert would allow “Upskale” to
showcase their amazing vocals to Tyrese and his
management team. They made such a great impression that they were
brought out to Los Angeles and began singing background vocals for
Tyrese on television appearances and shows throughout the United
States and Europe. The trio was then downsized to a duo, hence the
birth of Luke & Q.

Soon-after, Luke & Q sang for
music giant Clive Davis and were immediately signed
to J Records by way of Underdog Entertainment. Underdog producers
Damon Thomas and Harvey Mason, Jr. had established
themselves as hitmakers, writing and producing for Mariah
Carey, Luther Vandross, Toni Braxton and a host of others.
With Luke & Q, The Underdogs dug deep into their rich vault of
sounds to compliment their vocal talents and created a definitive
style. In addition to working with one of the hottest production teams
in music, Luke & Q have shared the stage with Beyonce,
Usher and Mario and were also featured in the
Destiny’s Child smash music video
“Soldier.”

With sexy, soulful ballads
and hard-hitting up-tempos, Luke & Q are destined to make an
impact. As two uniquely different pieces that fit together
brilliantly, they are real singers on a real mission to revive true
R&B music with a hip-hop feel.
