Since the release of his first album Gravity in 2000, Rob Lutes has steadily built a collection of exquisite songs that inhabit the intersection of blues, folk, Americana, and the singer-songwriter genre. He is known for his literate, melodic songcraft, his masterful fingerstyle guitar work, which includes elements of ragtime and blues, and his soulful voice which brings depth and an unmistakable intensity to his albums and live performances. Lutes is a multiple Maple Blues Award and Canadian Folk Music Award nominee, a Kerrville New Folk Songwriting winner, and winner of the CFMA for Contemporary Singer of the Year Award in 2018. He has released seven full-length albums, including 2017's Walk in the Dark, which No Depression called “consistently excellent, as are Lutes’s contemplative lyrics about life, love, death, and the blues." Lutes will release Come Around, his 8th solo album, in Winter 2021. He tours extensively, performing solo, in duo with Canadian guitarist Rob MacDonald, and in full-band format, and as part of Sussex. ‟A gem. Among the best in a crowded roots field.” - Greg Quill, Toronto Star ‟Great songs. I really like Rob's style.” - Chris Smither “A world-class songwriter.” Mike Regenstreif, Montreal Gazette
