Heartbreak hurts, but it can also be the inspiration of terrific songwriting. Luke Winslow-King had to go through some heartbreak when his partner and band-member left him last year. And when you have the blues, when you feel the blues, you play the blues. At least that’s what Luke did and it resulted in a terrific album that’s firmly nestled in blues.
About a year and a half ago Luke Winlow-King and band played Vanslag and it must have been really good as the buzz afterwards was really good and the build up to the concert last week was pretty big too. Playing the popular Dutch TV show De Wereld Draait Door a day earlier helped too of course.
