Greg has worked with many magazines in town and nationally, and he has a distinctive visual voice that I'm happy to feature. Today his subject is Luke Winslow-King, an equally strong stylist in his own right. Winslow-King will play Jazz Fest today at 3:45 p.m. on the Lagniappe Stage.

The best time you’ve had performing
We had one of our best sets ever performing at Jazz Fest last year. The crowd was really behind us and it was a very exciting to be on that stage for the first time. Looking for repeat this year!
I make the music I make because ...  
It's what I was born to do.
