I am tired of this waiting. Waiting for fools I didn't vote for, dictating a future that I don't want. Am I Scottish, British, European or none of the above? This feeling of lost identity, plus the everyday struggle of normal folk, is what I try to get across with my music. 
 Scottish by default, but Catalan by location, Louis has searched the barroom floor for all traces of a decent folk song. Influenced by The Pogues, Hamish Imlach, Matt McGinn and The Corries, to name but a few, Louis has set out to continue the grand tradition of the storytelling musician. 
 My new single 'The State of the Nation' is coming soon.
