Biography

Rob Lutes is a soulful singer-songwriter from Montreal with an ever-growing collection of literate, moving meditations on life and love.
His ability to encapsulate universal ideas and questions, even the subtle ones, coupled with his
gritty, heartfelt delivery and world-class performance chops, have invited comparisons with several legends in the roots genre from John Hiatt to Fred Eaglesmith.

“He will soon be counted amongst the ranks of the best in the industry, a rare talent that keeps getting better with each project released” says Hello Darlin’ Productions promoter Matt Large. Heaven magazine writer Kees van Wee calls him “one of the most impressive new Americana artists of the decade.”

Greg Quill of the Toronto Star deemed Lutes’ 2007 studio effort Ride the Shadows “a brilliantly understated gem distinguished by a warm and raspy voice, honest and eloquent lyrics, and evocative acoustic guitar work…among the best of the year’s roots/blues crop.” The Ottawa Citizen named the CD “one of the Top Ten in Canada for 2007”.

Following on the success of that work, which also took him to Europe – with a licensing deal from Rounder Europe – and across Canada, the former Kerrville New Folk winner entered the studio in the Fall of 08 to record his much-awaited fourth CD with noted Boston-area producer David Goodrich (Chris Smither, Peter Mulvey). Truth & Fiction was released in November 2008 and in December hit #4 on the EuroAmericana Chart. The Montreal Gazette has called it “his most compelling CD yet.”
