Biography

Minneapolis based Luther the Devil is a 3 piece blues band rooted in the Mississippi Hill Country and Delta blues traditions, that also mixes in elements of punk and rockabilly to create their own unique sound. Since 2006, LTD has been bringing their music to the masses, playing everywhere from cramped corner bars to festivals. Defined by their riff-based grooves, LTDs smoky licks and pulsing rhythms are helping characterize the genre of punk-blues. Fronting the band and on guitar is Dave Levine. The tattooed and toothless Levine is just as likely to be found jamming with other blues players as he is to be nursing a bottle of Beam. His shouts and hollers are a throw back to depression style vocals, as is his bottleneck guitar work. Grant Wibben adds the low end on upright bass and Eric Hanson rounds out the rhythm section on drums. Javier Matos adds rhythm and lead on harmonica as well as guitar and vocals.
