Luke LeBlanc is a Minneapolis-based Americana / Folk singer-songwriter who delivers dynamic and unapologetically original performances of songs filled with heart, soul, and grit. Per Twin Cities Daily Planet, “abundant as the Twin Cities music scene is in eyebrow-raising talent, Luke LeBlanc’s ear-friendly, indeed entrancing music marks him as a stand-out talent.”
Luke’s most recent single, “Same Blues,” has been featured on 89.3 the Current and has received critical acclaim from numerous music magazines, including Vents: "The lyrics are crafted in such a way to facilitate the best possible phrasing from LeBlanc and he delivers throughout with low-key dramatics that elevate the lyric into the realm of performed poetry. It never feels stilted or clichéd."
He is currently working on his newest album, slated to be released in Spring 2020. Born and raised in North Minneapolis, LeBlanc has shared the stage with Charlie Parr, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Phil Solem of the Rembrandts, Joey Molland of Badfinger, and the Ozark Mountain Daredevils. Now 24, LeBlanc taught himself how to play guitar at 11 years old and decided to write his own words and music soon after. At 13, he was the youngest to win the Zimmy’s (named after Robert Zimmerman, aka Bob Dylan) national Dylan influenced singer-songwriter competition in Hibbing, Minnesota.
