Dynamic Duo | “Don’t Look Away” by Kylie Hughes & Luke Underhill

Rising Pop Songstress Kylie Hughes Enlists Piano Driven Singer/Songwriter Luke Underhill for “Don’t Look Away” Duet

Dont Look Away by Kylie Hughes and Luke Underhill - BRASH! Magazine BlogRising pop songstress Kylie Hughes has enlisted fellow songwriter and piano-driven talent Luke Underhill to partner for a powerful duet, “Don’t Look Away.” Written by Hughes and Underhill and a ‘super relatable track’ (Celeb Secrets).

Celeb Secrets exclusively premiered the track yesterday stating, “The moody duet covers the insecure feeling of loving someone that could suddenly leave you.” View the exclusive HERE.

Hughes explains, “When Luke and I sat down to write this song, we talked about both knowing the insecure feeling of loving someone that could suddenly leave you. It was sparked by our love of film and the movie HER. Joaquin Phoenix’s last monologue is so emotionally complicated and truthful that it inspired a poem that we worked into a duet. Fear of loss of love is something we both very much related to.”

Underhill continues, “Kylie and I wanted to paint a very real picture with these lyrics. She showed me a poem she had written and I mentioned it reminded me of the closing monologue from Spike Jonze’s movie HER. The feeling of longing for someone who’s right next to you. You don’t want them to turn a shoulder because you don’t know if they’ll turn back. We ran through other directions we could possibly go for this song, but that lost feeling is something we connected on.”

Underhill and Hughes began writing together about a year ago and quickly found an artistic synergy. Both artists split time between Nashville and LA writing and recording.

Hughes is a multi-talented artist, born and raised in Southern California who began writing and recording at the young age of 12. Her most recent self-titled album landed her features by likes of The Huffington Post, Examiner, InStyle.com and Music Connection’s Hot 100 Unsigned Artists, to name a few. The budding talent has shared the stage with The Beach Boys, Jewel, Newsboys, MercyMe, and even performed a duet in 2013 at Carnegie Hall with Michael W. Smith.

Underhill, who is celebrating the release of his sophomore studio EP, Illuminations, has received more than 75,000 Spotify streams and has racked up more than 1 million YouTube views as an independent artist while garnering praise from the likes of Parade.com and Elmore Magazine. The Chicago native has performed several times on the city’s beloved morning show, WGN and recently brought his energetic live show to Nashville for his second performance at the music industry’s most popular weekly hang, Whiskey Jam.

Working on this album was unlike any other. This album was nothing less than an experience. As I was writing for this album, I knew from the beginning that it would be different than anything else I’ve done so far. I had big plans from the start. A different sound, a different feel, a different point of view in every way. None of it could have been achieved without the magic that is Mikal Blue and everyone at Revolver Studios. From my first day arriving at that studio, it immediately felt like home. Mikal Blue captured my sound and the feel I wanted just by getting to know who I was as a person, and who I was influenced by.

Producer Mikal Blue says: Luke’s ability to tell a story with an infectious melody make his songs stand out. His voice pulls you in and his catchy piano melodies and guitar hooks seal the deal.”
