Old Man Luedecke (NS)
Old Man Luedecke is a young man with an old soul. With skillful precision and a storyteller’s heart, Luedecke’s narrative-driven folk songs are playful, coy, and soul warming. Rich in metaphor and instrumentation, his latest release, Tender Is The Night, muses on love, art and purpose. This is an artist honing his lyrical flair – tenderly pushing the boundaries of his storytelling with his unique mix of folk, bluegrass and pop hooks.
He has a penchant for words and language. His latest effort gives nod to F.R. Scott Fitzgerald’s famous novel, a title lifted from John Keats poem, Ode To A Nightingale. “I am running like everyone else. Laughing just to keep from crying. I am always trying to find a way to express,” Luedecke says. “I am a prisoner for my appreciation for language; language that moves me is language that is unusual. I feel like it’s an important thing I can contribute to songwriting.”
After touring the globe and winning multiple JUNOs, it’s clear the world appreciates the song-craft of this remarkable Chester, Nova Scotia-based roots singer-songwriter. His memorable melodies, poetic style, and easy charisma appeal to anyone searching for new growth from old roots.
