|Since the release of his first album Gravity in 2000, Rob Lutes has steadily built an exquisite collection of songs that inhabit the intersection of blues, folk and Americana. His latest CD, The Bravest Birds, went to #1 on the EuroAmericana Chart in February 2013. |
A long-time Montreal resident who originally hails from the town of Rothesay, New Brunswick, Lutes has built a strong reputation thanks to his intense live performances and the superb quality of his songs. He is a former Kerrville and ISC winner and a Maple Blues, CFMA and Lys Blues nominee.
Lutes has released six full-length albums, including 2009’s widely acclaimed Truth & Fiction, which spent three months in the EuroAmericana Top 10.
“An undeniably strong singer and performer, Rob Lutes kicks it up on his latest LP, The Bravest Birds. It’s nothing you haven’t already heard from the Montreal singer-songwriter - impassioned storytelling, soulful vocals, and subtle fingerpicking wizardry - but after a decade of solid releases, it’s folk taken to a personal apex of finesse.”

Lutes regularly tours Canada, Europe and the U.S. as a solo show, in duo with Quebec guitar legends Rob MacDonald or Rick Haworth, or in a full-band format.
