Luke Dowler will perform tunes from his diverse catalogue of music on Wednesday at Fratters Speakeasy in Red Deer.

The Montana-based singer/songwriter/producer demonstrated his knack for creating memorable hooks in the jangly pop single Heart Attack, and his social conscience in the 2011 single Silence Is Shameful, a moving look at human trafficking.

Paste Magazine has called him “a Montana artist you needed to listen to now,” and an online reviewer described Dowler’s music as having “a defiant edge that brings vintage Springsteen or Petty to mind … but avoids slavish imitation.”

After releasing the rock/pop album Polarized in 2012, Dowler built his own studio and began work on an ongoing four-EP project: WEST, NORTH, SOUTH, & EAST.

Each CDs is built around a different musical identity — from WEST’s theme of moving into new territory, to the adventure bent of NORTH, the folk-rock feel of SOUTH, and the Motown and big band sounds of EAST.

Averaging over 110 shows a year, Dowler has performed internationally as a soloist and with a band.

Earlier this year, he took a break from the four-EP project for his first European tour.

There’s a $10 cover charge for the 8:30 p.m. show.
