About Luqman Rashada: Those who hear Luqman often share the sentiment, “he’s got an old soul.” Listen to him play a few songs, and you can hear echoes of the music he grew up on from a classic generation. Ask Luqman about the music that has influenced his style, and he would say, “Everyone and everything.” Soul, Folk, Blues, Country, and Pop were among the musical styles that Luqman experienced as a child.
Since 2011, Luqman has been making a name for himself performing in his city: Dallas, Texas. Some of his notable accomplishments include open call auditioning in Austin, Texas, for “The Voice: Season 6,” in 2013, moving him forward to Los Angeles, California, for “The Voice: The Blind Auditions.” Only one of every 75,000 artists make it to this stage of “The Voice.” In 2015, he was asked to privately audition in Dallas to be a contestant on the final season of “American Idol: The Farewell Season.” That audition took him back to L.A where he enjoyed a short stint on the show, performing his way through to Hollywood Week: Group Rounds. His time on the show came to an end shortly after, but not before a band member gave him wise words, “Continue on the journey!”
Luqman continues the journey as a full time musician and songwriter, writing and performing a blend of original music and renditions in diverse venues across the DFW metroplex and beyond.
