Luke Coughlan - "Frankie Valli"

Classically trained Irish-Londoner Luke Coughlan has toured the world and starred in national and international television roles. Luke first came to our attention with his debut television role in 2021 as the Peach Prince and intergalactic popstar Johnarchy in CBBC and RTE’s Nova Jones, where he is a recurring role across seasons. Luke also worked on Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks’ third instalment of the award-winning Band of Brothers mini-series Masters of the Air. Luke performs all over the country when he isn’t on our screens. He travels the world, singing rock classics with Legends of Rock and bringing the timeless music of Frankie Valli to audiences in the internationally acclaimed show Big Girls Don’t Cry. Luke trained at East 15 Acting School and Drama Studio London, where he also discovered his love for Sound Design and Musical Direction. Luke comes from a family of musicians. As a result, he has been playing traditional Irish music from a very early age and has played alongside Irish music legends at the Royal Albert Hall. While at the London Oratory School, Luke was classically trained as a chorister and sang in esteemed venues such as St John’s Smith Square. While in the chamber choir, Luke has sung incredible works, most notably Faure’s Requiem, Handel’s Messiah and Vivaldi’s Gloria. With series 3 of Nova Jones hitting our screens and the show going global, Luke appeared as a guest for the BBC on Saturday morning TV’s Saturday Mash-Up. Luke has also appeared alongside Kimberly Wyatt and Aston Marigold in CBBC’s Almost Never, where he guest-starred for the season finale. Luke also stars in Sony and Amazon’s audio drama Hully Boo’s Spook ‘n’ Spell, where he multi-roles a variety of characters throughout the series. Luke is a multi-instrumentalist. Starting out in sessions and rock bands as a child, he has become an accomplished electric guitarist and drummer and produces his own music. When playing folk music, Luke switches between banjo and mandolin with heavy drive coming from his acoustic guitar playing. Luke runs workshops and teaches young teenagers how to beatbox as part of their hip-hop modules. This is a way to make music more accessible to children who wouldn’t initially be interested in the curriculum or standardised instruments.

“I am delighted to bring this incredible music to you. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoy singing it!”
