More European dates for Luke Winslow-King coming up next week


This month Luke Winslow-King will be in Europe for his second tour within a few months promoting his new album Blue Mesa. On this run he'll hit The Netherlands, Spain, Germany and France.

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 & 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. 

Now residing back in his Midwest roots, Winslow-King’s years in New Orleans still elicit plenty of influence with Delta Blues, but he also treads on country-shuffling, rockabilly, gospel and swampy rock ‘n’ roll. He has already done exceptional work, but here he’s at his best.
