Luke Winslow-King is a New Orleans-based 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.
