Here at Luxury Stranger HQ we are very happy to announce that Jake Hampson is now the new full-time bass player for LS.

Here's what he has to say:
"'I'm dirt, living in a clean world.', at a small pub gig back in 2009 Luxury Stranger firmly cemented itself onto my universal playlist. I'm incredibly excited to have joined the band, as Simon embarks upon the release of the long awaited third album (between you and me, he has enough material to make albums four and five tomorrow).

"Our debut last minute slot at the Hope and Anchor in London was a great example of how Luxury Stranger is and always has been a band that doesn't stand still for long - and with the new found partnership between Luxury Stranger and manager Stephen Kennedy, it's clear that things will not be slowing down any time soon. I am very much looking forward to the next chapter of the band, both as a member and fan. Stay where you are!"

And he's right! We are looking forward to the completion and release of our new album, many gigs around the country in support of this, the recruitment of a drummer and additional guitarist to complete this new phase in the life of LS, shows in Europe, and a focussed and exciting drive forward to get Luxury Stranger to exactly where they should be. In your ears and in your hearts.

Thank you for travelling with us...
