Luke O’Shea

Celebrity Ambassador

With a distinct Australian style, storyteller singer-songwriter Luke O’Shea fits somewhere between John Williamson and Midnight Oil. With accolades including 14 Golden Guitars, Luke’s hard-hitting and celebrated songs are greatly inspired by the heartbreaking and the humorous. 

Heralding from a military family, a number of Luke’s songs are about raising awareness amongst everyday Australians about the mental health challenges that face many returned veterans, and the vital importance of reaching out and connecting with supportive organisations like Soldier On.  

He hopes that using song and video to promote public understanding of veteran experiences will reduce the hesitation some might feel in opening up about those experiences. 

Luke is a father of three. He has been a schoolteacher for over 30 years and continues to tour his music throughout Australia.
