A Master story teller who's music will warm your heart and put a smile on your face. Born in Birmingham, AL, Louie soon found himself drawn to the music scene the same way a lot of young kids were in the early days of Rock and Roll. But playing in local bands simply wasn't enough for Louie, so he just had to jump aboard the Show Circuit Bandwagon and go on a marathon,
whirlwind tour of the United States with a Las Vegas Show Band, which lasted the better part of 5
"Performing 6 nights a week, 51 weeks every year was an exorcise you couldn't help but learn from. Among other things, I developed a firm work ethic, but maybe the most important lesson learned was how to connect with the audience on an emotional level." - L.B.
Louie uses those lessons and more as tools of the trade to this very day. Engaging his audience with witt and astute observations as he sets up his songs, then delivers them with a smokey voice that, with his nearly 4 octave range, can soothe you one moment then drive the passion deep with
the power of his upper register.
An accomplished record producer, Louie has worked with artist from all over the world to develop productions that rival those of any major record label. He uses these skills to create his own backing tracks for his live performance so even though he performs as a solo act on keyboard, his audience can still do a little hand clapping and foot stomping to his professional arrangements.
From Rod Stewart to Ray Charles. Leon Russell to Lionel Richie. Louie covers them all like the Pro. that he is. Add to that, the stories that he tells with his own award winning bluesy original style of music and you have a recipe for warm hearts and smiling faces.
