Cadillac man Luke Winslow-King will release his new album, his first for Bloodshot Records, on April 23.
This is what we know: “29-year-old Luke Winslow-King is a guitarist, singer, composer, and lyricist known for his slide guitar work, and interest in pre-war blues and traditional jazz. Winslow-King’s work consists of an eclectic mix, taking in delta-folk music, classical composition, ragtime, and rock and roll; juxtaposing original songs with those from a bygone era.
“LWK, originally from Cadillac, Michigan, moved to New Orleans by chance in 2001. During a decade in New Orleans, he has collaborated with a revered list of local musicians, including: John Boutte, “Washboard” Chaz Leary, and Paul Sanchez. Performing years of weekly gigs on Frenchmen Street, LWK has honed his sound and earned respect as leader among the young traditionalists.”Follow @City_Slang
