Luke Winslow-King is guitarist, singer, producer, and songwriter. His work is an eclectic mix that combines Mississippi delta blues, folk music, traditional jazz, and roots rock & roll. His alchemical songs blend contemporary ideas with styles from bygone eras producing a sound that is rustic and urbane, elegant and entirely his own.

Winslow-King and an all-star cast of blues, roots, and world music greats, including Roberto Luti, and Charles Hodges (Al Green), cut his seventh full length record, If These Walls Could Talk in Memphis, TN. The new album presents an evolution of the bluesman’s sound that is both reverent and bright. Bearing up unprecedentedly hopeful lyrics is a deep sonic foundation of LWK’s beloved delta blues fused with the high energy midwestern rock that shaped his teenage years in Northern Michigan. Like all of Winslow-King’s work, If These Walls Could Talk continues to propel rugged roots to the vanguard of modern artistic sensibility.

In addition to cutting seven studio records in the last decade, he has toured extensively in North America and Europe, appearing on notable stages such as Austin City Limits, New Orleans JazzFest, Azkena Rock Festival (Spain), Tønder Festival Paradiso (Netherlands), Maverick Festival (UK), and countless more.

“Seamlessly melds Delta blues, gospel and jazz themes with personal, simplified lyrics that speak to his personal and artistic evolution.” — The New York Times
 
“Steeped in the muddy Delta blues…” — Consequence of Sound
 
“…he demonstrate[s] a wide range of songwriting worthy of comparison to Jason Isbell and John Fullbright.” — Austin Chronicle

    Luke Winslow-King is a career guitarist, singer, composer, producer, and songwriter whose fifth studio album ‘Blue Mesa’ will be released in May 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.
