Luke Winslow-King premieres song from new album and shares August/September Europe tourdates


Luke Winslow-King will release a new studio record, Blue Mesa, on May 11, 2018 via Bloodshot Records. This 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.

While New Orleans is always coursing through the veins of Winslow-King, the record was cut a world away in Italy. Holed up in the fortress village of Lari in rural Tuscany, he worked with Italian blues guitarist Roberto Luti, Chris Davis of King James and the Special Men and Mike Lynch on organ. To get a first impression see yesterday's premier of Leghorn Women on mxdwn.com.

Winslow-King will be bringing his unique brand of New Orleans-inspired Americana music on the road this spring and summer. In advance of his upcoming release and full band European tour in, Luke Winslow-King is joining forces with band member Roberto Luti to do a duo tour in Italy for 10 days in March, after that a full band tour is coming up in August and September:
