Here are some reviews of Carousel so far: 

“Truly excellent. Carousel … provides a perfect platform for Tuchscherer’s wonderfully rich expressive voice as he brings to life the stories embedded in the clear and wonderfully direct lyrics. An album of simple beauty.”

Americana UK (8/10)

“Luke comes across as the classic male country singer, not a romantic dreamer but a man of deep feeling hewn by worldly experience. Here we have some of his best lyrics: a tender concern for others is evident, notably in ‘Violets’ and ‘My Darling England’. While Tuchscherer appears very happy with his musical career, he really does deserve a much larger audience.”

Rock N Reel (4/5)

“Good lyrics and remarkable melodies”

Ruta 66

“The man is an excellent songwriter. Great album”

Rootstime

Here's what people have said about Pieces:
 

“If you like Springsteen, Petty et al, then you should definitely purchase this album of unostentatiously classy masculine rock.”

Rock N Reel (5/5)

 

“A gloriously unholy racket. A hugely enjoyable punch-the-air album with depth and power. A delight from start to finish.”

Americana UK (8/10)

 

“Apart from writing melodies that hit hard and take an age to fade from your mind, his lyrics are just as powerful. Even with so much great new music currently out there it’s no exaggeration to say that Pieces must feature in those best of 2018 end of year lists.“

Penny Black Music

“This album does not disappoint. For anyone who finds solace in shared life experiences, Pieces is a must.”

“It has the atmosphere of a sweaty, overcrowded club on a Saturday night, with the understanding that there is still plenty of subtlety available to avoid the storm of decibels growing into a hurricane. A very clever record.”

Reviews for 2017's Always Be True:
 

A real Americana masterpiece.

Americana UK (8/10)

Tuchscherer can not only compete with the best British singer/songwriters but also with the top international alt.country acts. He brings 10 flawless songs to Always Be True that immediately feel like classics and beg to be covered in Nashville. One of the best Americana albums of 2017.

Heaven (8/10)

“As good a slice of alt.country as you are likely to hear this year.”
– Michael Park, The International Americana Music Show

 

“It's got a strong vibe of Springsteen at his most blue collar running through the album, which is high praise indeed. Really strong songs. Hugely impressed.”

– Ralph McLean, BBC Radio Ulster

“His first album was great, but this is even better. It seems The Whybirds are gone forever, but with legacies like this, there's no need to mourn their absence.”

– Ruta 66

Reviews for You Get So Alone At Times That It Just Makes Sense:

 

“Luke Tuchscherer knows his way into a good song, and You Get So Alone... is loaded with them. Invoking love, loss and the intricacies of the human condition, Tuchscherer's impassioned vocals and tasteful Americana instrumentation herald him as one of the finer new singer/songwriters of today.“  

– Rob Bleetstein, Americana Radio Chart founder 

 

“Tuchscherer’s ability to create such an engaging collection should ensure that You Get So Alone At Times That It Just Makes Sense will be a contender for an appearance on any year-end list.”

Americana UK(8/10)

 

“An impressive collection of 12 well-crafted songs… It’s an excellent debut that reminds us of Ryan Adams’ Heartbreaker in its thematic and emotional impact – a great compliment indeed.”

R2 (Rock N Reel) (4/5)

 

“My only excuse for not reviewing this fabulous album sooner is that I was too busy playing it, over and over. This album should be heard and then celebrated.“

Northern Sky(4/5)

 

“Totally memorable… Luke Tuchscherer successfully pulls off an impressive and moreish debut.”
