Lou Shields / Bio

Lou Shields is an Artist, Musician, Teacher and Skateboarder who has been living and working in the Chicago area his entire life. He travels extensively, exploring America in it's urban and rural character and draws on these life experiences when making his work. His music is rooted in pre and post war 20th century America with a 21st century perspective. He has a deep appreciation for Delta Blues, Country Blues, early Country and beyond. Shields continues that tradition with respect in the 21st century and transcends any specific genre. However, critics have paired his music with the more recent Deep Blues music movement.
