Live at The Grace
Born in Liverpool to a heroin addict father and a mother desperate to keep him on the right side of the law, Louis Berry already seems to have lived nine lives.
The early single .45 was the first introduction to Louis’ songwriting world and quickly won him local praise as well as support amongst music tastemakers such as Zane Lowe, who nominated it his Next Hype. But it was 25 Reasons, the first single from Louis’ 2015 debut EP Rebel, which really cemented his sound, an amalgam of classic, gritty rock ‘n’ roll with soul.
The track saw regular plays and radio support from BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac and John Kennedy at Radio X. By the spring of 2015 he was awarded the One To Watch at Liverpool’s prestigious GIT Awards by a panel consisting of representatives from BBC 6Music, NME, Vice, The Guardian and Q Magazine.
