Luke Winslow-King (born March 12th 1983) 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.
Whether solo, or with a band, Winslow-King is known for an original sound that is both rustic and elegant. He delivers energetic and dynamic performances, with his burgundy voice and versatile guitar playing.
Winslow-King, 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, George Porter Jr., and Paul Sanchez.
Performing years of weekly gigs on Frenchmen Street, Winslow-King has honed his sound and earned respect as leader among the young traditionalists. His music appeals to countless vacationers making musical pilgrimages to New Orleans, selling thousands of records from the stage. Winslow-King has performed live on CNN and the Discovery Channel in recent years and was named 'Writer of the Week' by American Songwriter Magazine in January 2011.
Winslow-King's album, Old, New Baby (Fox On A Hill Record) received acclaim locally and nationally, and helped him gather followers in all generations. Recorded in 2009 at Preservation Hall, Old/New Baby was distributed by eMusic and named within American Songwriter's Top Ten Albums of 2009.
