LUKE WINSLOW-KING on Bloodshot Records
Bluesman Luke Winslow-King represents the spirit of his New Orleans home with gusto. After growing up in Michigan and studying jazz guitar, Winslow-King moved to Louisiana at 19 and learned gospel and jazz standards over the following years. He’s since made his own mark with masterful slide guitar and a traditionalist approach. Mississippi Delta blues and roots with a personal touch come through loud and clear on his four Bloodshot Records releases, including 2018’s Blue Mesa. Dusty, vintage Stax Records-era soul colors his latest record, recorded in Tuscany, but retaining his signature style nonetheless.
