A fairly recent Calgary transplant, Louis has made an impact here with songs built from soaring melodies, railroad-like consistent finger picking paired with quiet, haunting vocals and lyrical phrasing. Louis’s dark, rustic tales meld folk and soulful blues to tell tales of love, loss and the journey home. His songs beautiful, subtle creations that juxtapose emotions, striking imagery and experiences that charm and envelope listeners. With the sweet and intimate EP On a Journey for the Long Run, Louis shows why CBC Music's weekly "Reclaimed" series named him "one to watch" in 2021. This thoughtful nêhiyaw recently released a single called "Dancing with Sue" as a warm, huggy dedication to the supportive arts community that he found after moving to Calgary.
