So this blog has been on a bit of a hiatus — real life took over for me in a big way and I just haven’t had the time to devote to the site. I’m hoping to give it a kick in the pants at the new year, so keep an eye out for that. Meanwhile, I couldn’t let the moment pass without sharing a song from a great new-to-me artist. A friend of mine posted a link on Facebook to a video from Luke Winslow-Smith, and I was instantly smitten. Check it out.
Winslow-King’s a young guy who has a timeless sound. He pulls together elements of dixieland jazz, gospel, and country and makes something beautiful. He was very recently signed to Chicago’s Bloodshot Records, who will be re-releasing his most recent album, The Coming Tide, in March 2013. Look forward to much more great music from Winslow-King.
