Hailing from Minnesota, this multi-talented musician and producer is connected to Big Thief's Adrianne Lenker through marriage, and enjoys the admiration of Fleet Foxes' Robin Pecknold. Through their debut EP, "Once Now, Then Again," Lutalo endeavors to confront how the present world is eroding the promises made to a generation about their future. In the poignant track "For Now," they lament, "They like to say they want change," addressing the challenges faced by Black and Indigenous communities in the US, yet noting, "The more that I speak, they stay the same." In their personal journey, this enigmatic artist is carving out an alternative path, having relocated to Vermont with their partner in pursuit of a more sustainable community. This exceptional EP extends a captivating invitation, resonating like a meticulously tended flame.
