Happy Holidays to all!
December 19th, 2015We are settling in for the holidays here in Wakefield and Kingston albeit without our treasured snow. At least the driving will be safe. Thank you for supporting music and our band for all this time. We are keen to play in the new year and hopefully we will see many of you out there. My lovely suitmaker Wendy wrote a nice piece about her suit making that started with my fine Octopus themed suit that has turned many heads these last years. I have had to really get my game up to make sure that suit does not steal the show! You can read about the suit and all the other suits she made HERE look for the article on suits. All the best for the holidays and the new year to you and yours. Luther xo

November 18th, 2015I really want to thank Daisy Wreath for all her effort in maintaining our website for all these years and most recently reviving it for our new album and the new era. In the age of so many social media engines she has made our site a pleasant jumping off point for our music and shows. Merci beaucoup Daisy!

Hearts and Lonely Hunters
September 25th, 2015After many years of scheming and dreaming and writing and recording it is finally done and in my hands. Yes our new album Hearts and Lonely Hunters was produced by Hugh Christopher Brown and features all of the Wrongs with some very special guests including The Holmes Brothers. Everyone who contributed to the crowd sourcing campaign will be receiving there orders in the next few weeks and our official Toronto release show is set for November 25th at the fabulous Cameron House. Kingston show to be figured out soon too. Wakefield get the first look at it live with our show at the Blacksheep inn on Oct 9th. More news to follow!
August and beyond
August 25th, 2015Hi there, I trust everyone had a fun summer. I have been working away with H Chris Brown, Marty Kinack and David Irvine to finish up Hearts and Lonely Hunter for release into the world. Everyone who contributed to the indiegogo campaign can expect a digital copy within a few weeks if all goes according to plan. The cds will be about 3 weeks and the vinyl will take months as it is the fastest growing medium in music, who woulda thunk... Cathy Cleghorn has got the tshirts, stickers and buttons almost ready too. Very exciting. I am not positive when the official release will be but our pre release show at the Blacksheep Inn in Wakefield is set for Oct 9th. Wahoo! Lw
June 12th, 2015Well well well it is June already and time for an update. In a few weeks I will be join Carolyn Mark and band for a few shows including the Legendary Black Sheep Inn here in Wakefield and the wonderful Island Grill where Sean Kelly will join us on bass. Mr Rusty Ford is playing the tour with Carolyn as well and we wind up at Franc and Sylvias barn for a ripper of a show on June 28th. My next big thing that is coming up is as MC of the Saturday portion of the Skeleton Park Festival and it is the 10th anniversary of this amazing, homegrown event which we have played many times over the years. It has already started and runs to the 21st with the park concert on Saturday June 20th from 10-9.
May 11th, 2015Well our indiegogo campaign worked out great and we raised a pile of money to help pay for the making of and reproduction of my new album. Thanks to all who contributed and helped spread the word. We are closing in on finishing all the recording and mixing. The summer is closing in and we have already had some pretty nice days here in west Quebec/Kingston area. I am playing the first of a few patio shows coming up at the Wolfe Island Grill where our drummer bandmate Casey Fisher has done a wonderful job renovating the restaurant and modifying the beautiful patio. I am really looking forward to hosting the Skeleton Park Music festival in the park in Kingston on June 20th. It is an all day thing that is part of a larger all week event. The park day is a great family event with much to do and best of all it is right downtown in Kingston.
New Album Crowdsourcing Campaign is almost done
April 20th, 2015Greetings! my crowdsourcing campaign is closing in on the last 3 days if I can entice you to contribute and/or spread the word to others. I am super excited about what we have achieved so far and the album is sounding great but I hope we can bump it up still so I have the resources to get this album out into the world the way it deserves to be. Chris Brown has done a great job producing and I think you will love it. we put up some songs on the page as well for you to check out: My Indiegogo Campaign
April 4th, 2015Happy Easter! We are off to an excellent start with My Indiegogo Campaign to raise funds for ye new album. I want to thank all of you that have contributed and those of you that are going to, (right?). It is shaping up to be a great listen that is about one half rockers and one half roots. The rock part is so fun to work on in the studio as mucho guitars are used plus plenty of keyboards and stringy synthy bits. And of course pounding drums courtesy of the magnificent Cam Giroux. H. Chris Brown has done such a solid job wearing the producer hat during this ride. We have been teaming up and scheming on musical events for 20 good years with great results. It all started when the uber group he was in, The Bourbon Tabernacle Choir, took Weeping Tile on what was to be there last national tour and what was then our first. Our gang in total numbered fourteen, and took 2 vans and a car to move around the 2nd largest country in the world. Shortly after that epic adventure they all moved to Nyc and set up shop in Jersey where they worked the New York city music scene for a bit before eventually disbanding. Brown and Kate Fenner had no intention of leaving the city though and they soon established themselves as an act to attract both audiences and stellar musicians who wanted to play with them. They moved over to Brooklyn and set up shop on President street in a bohemian groove palace that many Canadian bands booked in to stay at over the years. The jams in the kitchen and especially the back yard groovy grotto are legendary. That is where me the Wrongs were the night of the great blackout of 2003. Here is a story many musicians can tell versions of. I recall there being 3 stand up basses at one point during the jam. It was like every musician in Brooklyn new where to gravitate to when the power failed. It was the same place in 2005 Brown was asked by the Goodman family to produce a tribute album to the late, great Steve Goodman which included me and the Wrongs doing his most famous song, City of New Orleans. Now 10 happy years later we are mining the music gold at his rustic studio on Wolfe Island off the shores of Kingston and hello! This winter has been right out of a Jack London story. Not quite To Build a Fire, but damn close...

Marching forward into bliss
March 21st, 2015My my it has been a while. Things are actually moving along quite well with my long anticipated album. H Chris Brown and I have sequestered ourselves over on Wolfe Island for many weekends over the winter in his rustic studio, beavering away on the finer points. Sheeham Crowe of Sheeham and Lotus lives over there as well so I press-ganged him into helping me with The Parking Lot Song. It is one of the oldest of the batch and we demoed it once upon a time in Winnipeg whilst on tour but I have probably played it at almost every gig and hootenanny since so it seems like a defining version is in order. Sister Sarah Hamer came over for a big day of vocalizing and juiced up the project with her fabulous pipes. Wrongs guitarist Dan Curtis has also stirred the pudding and wham bam Cam Giroux made another visit a few weeks ago to round out the last few tunes with his solid drumming and amicable vibe. Spring is slow in coming but we are hopeful. Carolyn Mark and the Hootenanny Revue rides again this June with shows in Ontario and Quebec. We have a stellar crew together for the shows including Jenny Whiteley, Dani Nash, Carolyn and her band, Tara Dunphy of the Rizdales, yrs truly and there are rumours of a Rusty Ford appearance The tour dates I am doing are in the tour section here and for the full tour visit www.carolymark.com
