A recent graduate of Macalester College, LUKE LeBLANC is a 23-year-old Minneapolis singer-songwriter who delivers dynamic and unapologetically original performances of songs filled with heart, soul, and grit. According to music critic Dwight Hobbes, “abundant as the Twin Cities music scene is in eyebrow-raising talent, Luke LeBlanc’s ear-friendly, indeed entrancing music marks him as a stand-out talent.”
Born and raised in North Minneapolis, LeBlanc played South by Southwest in Texas in 2017 and found himself opening for Phil Solem of the Rembrandts, Joey Molland of Badfinger, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, and the Ozark Mountain Daredevils.
His newest EP, “Time on My Hands,” was released to critical acclaim. This is a follow up to his 2013 full length release, “New Orleans Bound,” which was featured on 89.3 The Current in Minneapolis, the Bridge and the Villager on Sirius XM, as well as college radio stations nationally.

Luke was perfect!! Yes he was very appreciative of the hotel room the night before and very positive and wonderful to work with. I would love him again in the fall! He was great!!! Just wish there was more songs on his CD that I bought- love his voice and guitar picking. He was perfect for earth week, HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Was maybe the 1st artist I did not have to tell to turn it down a notch !! - Steve Krafcisin, Director of Student Activities, Des Moines Area Community College - Boone, IA
