Louis has been involved in the music industry under various guises for over a decade - playing in indie bands, working for a record label and now working as a producer.
His first ventures in music were slightly less professional. “I first started making music the traditional way, I suppose. When I was about 13, my friend played guitar and the girls were more interested in him than me, so I asked for one for Christmas.”
However, he quickly realised that music would be his main focus in life. “Within weeks I was hooked on making music. After that, I learned to play the bass, drums and piano - and then I got bitten by the production bug. After playing in a few dodgy bands, I signed a record deal and never looked back.”
Always wanting to evolve his music, Louis took a different approach when writing these tracks. “I wanted to take the ‘traditional’ band line-up and augment it with electronic elements. All of these songs began life on an acoustic guitar, with a rough melody and some gibberish for lyrics. Generally speaking, though, it's pretty unusual for me to write on acoustic these days, but for these tracks I wanted a more organic process.”
