I'm a passionate singer-songwriter with the aim to record a new LP, 'Reflection', using multiple instruments. Then share online and live!

by Louise and The Feathers in Talgarreg, Wales, United Kingdom

Louise and The Feathers is a creation after years of writing, jamming and finally wanting to share my folk, pop, rock vibe with influences from Florence and The Machine, Paolo Nutini, Alison Moyet, Tina Turner, Annie Lennox, 4 Non Blondes and more.

From Birmingham originally, we moved to Mid Wales when I was 9. I’ve been writing ever since, played in a variety of bands and at numerous open mic nights. Over summer (in 2011) I worked as chef assistant via Camp America and 3 weeks in I realised how much music meant, so just had to buy a guitar! Then on return, I had true determination to do more with music so held events, workshops and made sure to get written words made into songs and face playing at open mic nights.

After progression and basic recordings I unfortunately got Encephalitis (in 2016), where since have had to find my way through phases of memory recovery. Re-visiting and re-learning songs along with facing the stage again has been a real challenge, but given me much more awareness and acceptance than ever before. 

So (in 2017) I played at an open mic at Porters Cardiff and came up with using my middle name “Louise” representing the roots of my music passion, alongside “and the feathers” linking to spiritual inspiration and a love of nature with the hope to share more and eventually form a band. Since have recorded a demo EP ‘Fallen Leaf’ at home and built confidence at numerous open mic nights and gigs. This led to (during 2018 and 2019) jamming with Andy (on bass) and getting better quality recordings at Aberystwyth Music Studio with Ivan. With gig experience including Pembs Fest, West Fest, Cwmaman Festival, Cwrw and more I then finally put them together as 'Window View' EP!

Now am hoping to get some more songs recorded and put together on 'Reflection' (originally EP now) LP with more of a true instrument ambient vibe. Then shared across the various platforms, with a couple of launch events and a mini tour including multiple locations! The songs to look forward to are FIGHT IT, SUPER WOMAN, MILL POND (lyrics by George Sandifer-Smith),  FIGURE IT OUT (lyrics by Wendy) and DARKNESS. Now with extras JEKYLL & HYDE and BOW & ARROW!! Currently being rural it would amazing to gain your support on this ever progressing journey, which has already given me so much to reflect on (hence the name aha). Will of course have a cool mirror LP image and some fab merchandise made too! Any ideas let me know. Aha.
