Luke Winslow-King is a career guitarist, singer, composer, producer, and songwriter whose fifth studio album ‘Blue Mesa’ will be released in Spring 2018, following 2016's ‘I'm Glad Trouble Don't Last Always’ (Bloodshot Records). On Blue Mesa, Winslow-King strides between various forms of American music, from powerful electric blues numbers to stripped down folk songs and country blues toe-tappers to fiery rock 'n roll anthems. All the while, he allows ample space for his songwriting - even further crystallized and road tested on this release - to shine brilliantly. On stage, Winslow-King is undeniably smooth, soulful and dynamic, all while seamlessly weaving together a diverse set of songs that are bound to engage fans of both traditional and contemporary roots, blues and rock & roll.
Born and raised in the Northern Michigan town of Cadillac, Luke moved to New Orleans at 19 and spent the next 15 years fully immersing himself in the musical waters that flow through there, but no matter where he goes, the current of the New Orleans still tugs at his music. The sweaty riffs of “Thought I Heard You” are as hot as the beer is cold and the syncopated horns on “Chicken Dinner” are a big, playful flirtation. The psychedelic swamp boogie of “Leghorn Women” brims with charm, both suave and sinister, while the Tom-Petty-on-the-levee vibe of “Born to Roam” makes it a classic-in-the-making road trip anthem.
