Wink Burcham is an old soul with a song craft that belies his age. With a genuine reverence to the past, this Tulsa, OK artist has a knack for writing witty, heartfelt lyrics that immediately pull the listener into his stories, ala John Prine or Townes Van Zandt. The music easily slips between old-fashioned country, grass-roots folk, and Piedmont-style blues and is an important part of the New Tulsa Sound movement.
He’s recorded and performed at the legendary Church Studio, once owned by Leon Russell and the home of Shelter Records and was a semi-finalist at the 2013 International Blues Competition in Memphis, TN. He’s shared the stage with artists such as Martin Sexton, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, The Gourds, Wayne “The Train” Hancock, Jimbo Mathus, Dale Watson, Dan Bern, Pokey LaFarge, and many others.
