Welcome to Heckyl Music

Heckyl is the new artist project from songwriter and producer Luke Potter

They are personal pop songs that are inspired and informed by… “a monster underneath my bed, but at night he crawls into my head”

And they capture a world where anxiety, love and creativity come together in the form of ‘Heckyl’.

“Heckyl will take you on your own personal journey of emotions wrapped in a pop singer / songwriter vibe. He is the Monster that lives inside your head trying to fill it with anxiety. Sometimes he’s shouting and other times he’s just a whisper but the one thing you know is that he’s always there waiting for you. 

The songs will tell the story of when the monster is your enemy causing negativity – and when you have let him be your friend allowing you to see the importance of appreciating the good in life, including being creative.

The Reviews Are In

12 August 2021|

So I’ve been knocked out by the awesome reaction I got to my latest single, ‘Free Falling Down’ 🙂

Here’s just a few of my faves and thanks to everyone for supporting my new Heckyl project:

“Heckyl returns with another banger… It’s not easy but Heckyl has a knack for writing those chorus lines that stick forever… I once read that Rivers Cuomo of Weezer has a notebook and in it lies several formulas for the perfect pop song. Not sure if that is true or not really but it might be the same for the man behind Heckyl.” The Sounds Won’t Stop

“Free Falling Down is yet another example of Heckyl’s singing and songwriting abilities, wrapped around a warm electronic production that enhances the important issues of his storytelling. Have a listen to this gem below!” caesarlivenloud

“An exciting tune, that will make you reflect upon your own social media habits. Highly recommended!”  We Are Your Mix

“the artist also released the single ‘Free Falling Down’, the fourth single… Continuing its work this sound features an electropop vibe, full of synths and beautiful harmonies, coupled with lyrics that describe the futility of chasing your dreams through the world of social media where you “like” and constantly scroll through the “feeds” they replaced true personal interaction.”  Osgarotosdeliverpool

“His (Luke / Heckyl) experience in writing catchy music that easily slips into the listener’s heart is undeniable, and his new project Heckyl takes that skill of his further… And while this song is super serious, his emotional vocals and wonderful production still offer a lot for the ears. It also feels a bit rewarding for those of us who have managed to remain dominant over the social media. That freedom tastes sweet.” lessthan1000followers

AND please look out for my new single, ‘Bubblegum’, that is out on August 27th. Thanks!

Free Falling Down

19 July 2021|

My 4th Heckyl single, ‘Free Falling Down’ is out now on Spotify, Apple and everywhere digital 🙂

The song is how I feel about the damage that social media does to today’s youth. We live in a world where everyone has the ability to judge each other through a screen, leading to more and more people dealing with anxiety and self-esteem issues.

“Who are we?
Scrolling through a screen for a feeling
and it carries no meaning
how empty, must we be to search for likes for attention…”

Side Where You Slept – OUT NOW

21 June 2021|

So the singles keep coming fast and I’ve got a lot more ready to go. Thinking I’ll be putting a new single out every 4 weeks for the rest of 2021 and maybe an EP too 🙂

The latest release is ‘Side Where You Slept’ that came out on June 18th through all the major Digital providers. You can find it here:

“‘Side Where You Slept’ captures that moment after a tough break up where you haven’t quite come to terms with what you’ve lost, waking up in the middle of the night expecting to put your arms around your loved one and realising they’re not there.”

Had some great feedback already that I’m really grateful for including this one from my good friend César… please have a read! 



Great Reviews & Thanks to:

16 May 2021|

Just want to thank Record of the Day for their awesome support and great review of my latest single, ‘Stranger’. Here’s an edit from it:

“Written and produced at his Sweet Factory studio, the track is a gloriously hooky affair with its almost Kygo-esque rhythm, swirling synths and lush harmonies. Early support has come from Pop Muzik, but more are sure to follow…” The whole thing is here

Similarly, the review from Sweden’s POPMUZIK (translated by Google) reads:

“Stranger is an explosive EDM-inspired pop song that carries a deeper meaning. The song marks the second single from this new artist and is a mix of catchy melodies, parts and Kygo-like rhythms. The soundscape is mammoth and warm at the same time as it is crispy and flirts with both tropical house and pop.” Full review here

There are more too. Just click into the following reviews…

And I’d just like to announce here first that the next Heckyl single, ‘Side Where You Slept’ is out on June 18th, 2021. More about this soon! Thanks.
