Globetrotter Anthems: Luke Redfield Tonight

Posted By on Fri, Aug 3, 2012 at 8:00 PM

Luke RedfieldTraveling man and transcendental Americana singer/songwriter Luke Redfield plays celestial folk  music for the nomadic intellectual. His prosaic lyrics have gleaned comparison to Bright Eyes and Iron and Wine and would fit neatly alongside Beat generation poetry, discussing everything from philosophy to social activism and, of course, the open road. Something like a Jack Kerouac novel set to music by Devendra Banhart.

Redfield’s poetic sensibilities stem from his wandering escapades across the US and Europe. After the recording his first EP, Fire Mountain, in 2008, Redfield pulled a Thoreau and spent a year living in a seven-by-seven shack in the Alaskan wilderness. He emerged with a new set of inspired material and was ready to record. He has since released two full length albums, 2010’s Ephemeral Eon and his newest release Tusen Takk which features collaborations from members of Andrew Bird’s band, Bon Iver and Peter Wolf Crier.

You can listen to all of his albums here.

Redfield also recently recorded with Rock Island, Ill. based indie trailblazers, Daytrotter. Listen to his acoustic Daytrotter session here.

Don’t miss his set tonight which rounds out his summer tour, it will soothe any well traveled soul.  He will be joined by shoegaze experimental guitarist Brave Julius.
