Loui Rose

ArtForm: CityShowcase Act/Composer

Blessed with a voice that lifts the listener out of the mundane and into the magical, 21 year old Loui Rose has been breathing new life into London's acoustic scene of late. Accompanied by guitarist and co-writer Sam Dixon, and armed with a handful of songs inspired by everything from the sex lives of foxes to the joys of a hangover, it's clear that Loui Rose won't be playing to such intimate audiences for long.

Born in Southampton into a creative family, Louis wasted no time in following her sister to London when she turned 18. Living out of a suitcase and sleeping on sofas, she continued her musical studies until it became clear that life viewed from a Starbucks window offered more inspiration than the classroom. Since dropping out of college in early 2010 she has been immersed in songwriting, performing and plotting her future.

Inspired by strong, imaginative, female performers, from Nina Simone and Patty Smith to Kate Bush and Bat For Lashes, plans are afoot to transform Loui's acoustic compositions into fully formed productions that do both her voice and songwriting justice. But for now we suggest you enjoy the beautiful simplicity of these early acoustic performances while you can.
