The contest aimed to give the winner free publicity and an online profile, Luke eventually finished second with around 600 votes. He was beaten by Howl on Vinyl.
Before the competition Luke announced that if he won he would give away digital copies of his upcoming debut album For Winter for free.
Despite not winning he says he will still do this, as a thank you. He wrote the following message for his fans:
“Well there we go, the competitions over and I came an incredibly respectable second. I can’t thank you all enough for the phenomenal response I had by everyone.
You were all incredible so thank you so much. I know I said that if I won the comp I’d give my album away for free but I’m going to be giving it away for free digitally now anyway as a thank you.
To get over 600 votes from such a small fan base compared to first place’s was incredible. So once again, thank you all so much. You’re awesome.”
The new album which follows two shorter format EP’s is expected around May time.
