Winner of the 2009 Kerrville New Folk Songwriting Competition.
Louise grew up in the small town of McEwen, TN on a farm with British parents and several siblings, writing poetry and singing with the radio. After college in Knoxville, she "borrowed" her brother's Sears guitar, bought a simple chord book and started writing songs. Compared to Nanci Griffith, Lucinda Williams and Patty Loveless, she’s shared the stage with Jonatha Brooke, Allison Moorer, Greg Trooper, Malcolm Holcombe, Marcia Ball, Mindy Smith, Diana Jones & Michelle Malone. She’s played prestigious venues like The National Press Club, The Bluebird Café, Eddie’s Attic, The Evening Muse, Douglas Corner Café and The Exit/In.
