Bloodshot Records signs Luke Winslow-King

November 28, 2012

imgBloodshot Records is very excited to announce the signing of New Orleans-based artist Luke Winslow-King. Luke initially caught our ear with his unique style, emerging from the ashes of Delta blues, New Orleans traditional jazz, ragtime, and pre-war American folksong. After being transfixed watching Luke and singer/washboard player Esther Rose perform gorgeous duets at a noisy college bar in Chicago we were straight up hooked. His amalgam of sounds is full of culture and texture, and respectively Winslow-King’s knowledge of music history and attention to detail are nearly as captivating as his impeccable song compositions, guitar technique, and warm voice.
 
As for a little background detail: in 2010, already with two full-length albums under his belt, LWK formed a trio consisting of Rose and upright bass player Cassidy Holden that remains the namesake’s core incarnation. In June the group self released the exceptional The Coming Tide and after being bowled over, we knew Luke and Co. would make a great addition to the roster.
 
In March 2013 Bloodshot will re-release The Coming Tide with bonus tracks and new packaging.
 
Below is the remainder of the LWK’s show dates in 2012, with many more to come in the new year. He and the group tour extensively – roughly 175 performances over the last year – so keep an eye out for them in your area.
