Louie is an award winning musician, song writer and performance poet, best known as crowd commanding frontman in hip-hop collective Hector Bizerk. His razor sharp lyrical intricacies and densely crafted wordplay have drawn comparisons to the likes of Gil Scot Heron, Edwin Morgan and Alex Turner,and resulted in a collaboration with Scotland's Makar Liz Lochhead.
Louie and The Loch Backs live performances are the antithesis of the rambunctious revelry synonymous with Hector Bizerk, with emphasis purely on the relationship between lyrics, vocal melody and silence. The acapella group purposefully creates an entrancing intimate mood where the audience is drawn into a feast of poetry, prose, story telling and wordplay backed up by beautiful, bold three part harmonies .
