Luke Redfield may only reside in Colorado half of the time, but his music captures the true spirit of the state. A pleasant blend of indie and folk with some country twang mixed in, his record Born American is a great soundtrack for a long drive.  The album drops August 12.

Each song paints a different picture. His lyrics, like the title of the album, represent true freedom. “Mesabi Ranger” stands out as the most unique track on the record. Heavily influenced by classic country, the song is one of the few on the album that is very danceable. Check Redfield out next time he’s in town, his acoustic sound must translate very well into live performance.

    Nice shout out to a well deserving artist. I’ve seen Luke perform live twice and both times he brought passion and an open heart. Really looking forward to the new release!

    I’m looking forward to this album. I caught Luke’s show at Shine in Boulder, excellent show! He has the kind of voice where you really believe what he’s saying. Go see him!

    Luke Redfield is a rare and beautiful breed of song-writer… a real troubadour by nature… one who lives his songs… always present in his delivery… no chord, lyric, or breathe is wasted…

    Last year, troubadour road scholar Luke Redfield performed at Shine in Boulder- one of his short-lived hometowns…”home” being relative. Those of us lucky to see the show found the Luke experience intimate and luxurious. Like wilted plants in a sun shower, we soaked up every word sung and every chord strummed. By far one of the better songwriters I’ve seen in Colorado, Luke is exceptional at playing solo acoustic or, like this show, accompanied by gifted musicians who pull together the richness of his studio recordings. Luke’s songs, rooted in Americana sounds, stratified landscapes and cracked asphalt took us onlookers through desert travels, windblown plains, lost love realms, and philosophic liturgies where East meets West; Guru metaphysics meets cowboy hobo vagabond mysticism. Luke left the crowd satiated and inspired… perhaps even inspired enough to venture out on the road where one finds that home is truly is within you wherever you were, wherever you are, and wherever ever you’re headed.
