Luke Winslow-King releases 'Blue Mesa' on May 11th and announces second European tour


Genre-sweeping Luke Winslow-King releases deeply personal, new album 'Blue Mesa' through Bloodshot Records on May 11th and announces a second European tour.

His latest album is an example of craftsmanship at the highest level, radiating a warmth and timeless elegance. Adept at mixing country, blues, R&B, rock ‘n’ roll, and folk influences intuitively and masterfully, Luke shapes a mood from many sources and shepherds it to a unifying place of acceptance and hope. Blue Mesa is both stately and approachable, manifestly proficient but deeply personal.

What sets this album above the singer and guitarist’s previous work is how he’s absorbed the offerings of a life in music. Born and raised in the Northern Michigan town of Cadillac, he moved to New Orleans at 19 and spent the next 15 years fully immersing himself in the musical waters that flow through there. Now that he’s moved on, it is the larger world, and the people and places in it, that enthralls him. From these travels and friendships comes a deeper and richer perspective on the American musical traditions he fell in love with at an early age.

With Blue Mesa Luke Winslow-King will be touring Europe not once but twice. Last month we already announced a tour in August and September, we are happy to announce a second run in October as follow up on this:
