A Texas native, Prater has been playing the guitar since he was in diapers and began singing at church as soon as they would let him on stage. His music is uniquely melodic and guitar focused, reminiscent of the great guitar trios from the 90’s.
“It’s rare to find an artist as developed as Luke who has been blessed with great vocals, is guitar savvy and can hold his own in a writing room at the ripe age of 21. We are thrilled to have him on board as the latest artist
to sign with FOUR17 Entertainment and look forward to a stellar career in the music industry.”
– Brandyn Steen
Prater first came onto the music scene in 2018 with the independent release of a self-titled EP that introduced fans to his authentic sound and style of delivering music. Since then, he has cut his teeth touring and playing upwards of 100 shows a year and has recently signed a management deal with FOUR17 Entertainment in Nashville. “To be able to work with someone like Brandyn Steen and the impressive roster of other talented artists at FOUR17 has been
nothing short of a lifelong dream for me. Seeing the opportunities they have presented Curtis [Grimes], David [Adam Byrnes], Brandon [Rhyder] and others with has given me a whole new sense of possibility about what can be accomplished with the right team, and I could not be more excited to begin this journey with them,” Prater proclaims with excitement. Currently touring with fellow FOUR17 artist Curtis Grimes, who is coming off a recent #1 album, Prater shares, “It has been the best time of my entire life this year and has also given me an opportunity to share and showcase my music in a way that wouldn’t have been possible otherwise. I’m grateful and thankful to God, Curtis and FOUR17 for that.” Although he is still fresh to the music scene, the country crooner has been honing his craft with the tenacity of a seasoned veteran for years and the possibilities for this young artist are endless.
