A short introduction to this wonderful New Orleans-based guitarist, singer, composer, producer, and songwriter: His work is an eclectic mix that combines Mississippi delta blues, folk music, traditional jazz, and roots rock & roll. His original songs blend contemporary ideas with styles from a bygone eras; producing a sound that is both rustic and elegant. This along with his burgundy voice and versatile guitar playing have earned him a reputation as a musician who delivers soulfully energetic and dynamic performances.
Luke Winslow-King is set to release his 5th solo album on Bloodshot Records in 2016. The album was recorded in Livorno, Italy during the band's 2015 summer tour, and completed in New Orleans at Parlor Room Studios. Featuring slide guitarist Roberto Luti, Benji Bohannon (drums), Brennan Andes (bass), and keyboardist Mike Lynch the album is a chaptered tale of woes and an instructional on how to survive true heartbreak. LWK’s signature soulful blues and songwriting style remain prevelant while the band explores a more electrified and energetic live sound that has become trademark of their live performances.
