Ann Arbor Distilling Co.: Luke Winslow-King

A Cadillac-bred Americana singer-songwriter and guitarist who currently lives in New Orleans, Winslow-King specializes in a style of prewar pop music steeped in blues and jazz, along with originals in the same vein. PopMatters critic John Paul calls his new Bloodshot Records CD, Everlasting Arms, "an album full of charming, deceptively complex arrangements and chord progressions that hearken back to a freer, looser time in American popular song."
