BORN in Liverpool to a heroin addict father and a mother desperate to keep him on the right side of the law, it took just two gigs for Louis Berry to be signed.
Early single .45 was the first introduction to Louis’ songwriting and quickly won him local praise as well as national support from the likes of Zane Lowe, who nominated it his ‘Next Hype’ on his then BBC 1 Radio Show.
It was ’25 Reasons’, the first single from Louis’ 2015 debut EP ‘Rebel’, which cemented his sound as an amalgam of classic rock n’roll and soul.
His style has been compared to legends such as Johnny Cash, as well as modern-day talents such as Alex Turner.
Louis’ track ‘Restless’ is currently getting some airtime on daytime BBC Radio 1, If you haven’t already heard it go check it out on Spotify or Soundcloud.
