Luke Winslow King

Luke Winslow-King is a New Orleans-based guitarist, singer, composer, 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. It is a sound that looks to the past to move to the future. This along with his burgundy voice, dapper attire and versatile guitar playing, has earned him a reputation as a musician who delivers soulfully energetic and dynamic performances. Originally from the northern Michigan town of Cadillac, LWK began studying and performing music at a young age, he formed a blues band at the age of 16, busked the streets, worked the clubs, recorded award winning albums, and now tours the world with the likes of Roseanne Cash, Jack White, Pokey Lafarge, Chris Thile, and the Rebirth Brass Band. Winslow-King has become a respected leader among the young traditionalists in New Orleans, and is known as one of the hardest working, authentic, and original acts in Americana music.
