Karl Blau

Karl Blau

There’s a real art to interpreting and reinterpreting songs from the past and few do it as well as Karl Blau. His 2016 LP, Introducing Karl Blau, released via the ever-reliable Bella Union label, saw the Northwest indie hero delivering a sublime set of covers, all plucked from the golden age of country music: the Nashville scene of the 1960s and 70s. Having released more than forty records over the past twenty years, the record gave Blau’s work the breakthrough it truly deserved; his melancholic, beautifully tender croon reaching a whole new set of ears and hearts in a year when many of us needed it the most.
