Mel Lukin released her first EP in 1999 and in recent years has released some lovely country-pop singles, including ‘Caught Up in a Dream’. Earlier this year she released the song ‘One Way Ticket’ and her latest single is ‘Look Up’, which is an inspiring song that exhorts us to take in and appreciate the world around us.

‘I wrote this song with talented songwriter, Nolan Wynne, in May of last year,’ says Lukin. ‘We sat down together and just started chatting about life as you do when starting the writing process.  He has young girls also, and we shared common experiences and concerns which made writing this song so fulfilling.  I had the title “Look Up” and the concept for a quite a while, and Nolan and I rounded it out together and created the song “Look Up”.  Currently, kids and teens hardly engage in face-to-face conversations, and is is crucial for us to help our youth in redirecting their attention towards the real world.  Together, let’s encourage our young people to “Look Up”. This song means so much to me personally and it’s my honest to date.’
