Luke Top is a renaissance man. Having collaborated with Cass McCombs, the Papercuts, and Foreign Born, his most recent endeavor with guitarist Lewis Pesacov, Fool's Gold, is as diverse as his background. The Israeli-born son of an Iraqi refugee and a Russian-born aviator, Top has adapted his Jewish faith into a new breed of afro-electronic music. Singing in Hebrew and accompanied by a 10-piece band, Luke Top and Fool's Gold is single-handedly transforming the Los Angeles music scene.
