Biography


Brother Lou is a singer and songwriter currently living in Vienna, Virginia. He has played in various bands across New York, Philadelphia, Atlanta and Miami but currently records and plays in the D.C. area. He has received many achievements for the music that he has created. His song Tonight was nominated as a finalist in the ‘Song of the Year’ contest, sponsored by VH1. Two of his songs have also been featured in the award-winning documentary “Anytown, USA”.

Using an acoustic palette for colour, Lou moves through delicate finger-picking guitar melodies (Through the Wind), percussive beats and chords for a richer rhythmic drive (This Song), and a trance inducing strum (I’m Gunna Rise Again) – all of which are woven around his musical feeling of folk.

With a voice that can rattle and cuddle equally, Brother Lou’s passion is what hits you right after the sound of his voice. With a musical foundation that cements itself to the format of beautiful folk, his songs are expressed as observations on life through the eyes of Brother Lou. Song titles, for the most part, are only the introductions to the many stories he has to tell. Going into tracks like Don’t Want to Hide Anymore, When You Lose at Love, The Devil in Me, the words combined with his honorable rhythms play out with strength. The fifty-eight seconds of I Need A Truck provides a carefully crafted list of the things that Lou needs to have with him at all times.




Quotes:

“Brother Lou (my other hero) sings out notes clear and majestic as a redwood forest. And like a forest of fine trees, THE DEVIL IN ME is a collection of some of Lou’s finest writing and performing. Drawing from some of south Florida’s best talent - John Jay Martyn, Debbie Duke, Armando Zuppa, Wes Malkin, Carol Matz, Rex Fischer, Bob Grabau, Nancy Wagner, Dan McGrath, Kevin Koester and Rex Blazer - Brother Lou has cultivated a CD of insights and awakenings that challenge, enlighten and entertain.”

Robert Mitchell - South Florida Folk Notes

“Turn where you will on THE DEVIL IN ME, there’s always something interesting to see and hear. Starting of with the title track, Brother Lou declares the devil to be mean and abusive, but at least he’s there (god is allusive).”

Robert Mitchell - South Florida Folk Notes

“In the hypnotic WHEN YOU LOSE AT LOVE and the captivating BAD GRAVITY there are vocal harmonies that echo Mick Ronson’s dissonant backing style for David Bowie on Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders From Mars (title track, 1972).”

Robert Mitchell - South Florida Folk Notes
