Introduced to jazz by her father as an antidote to the 80's pop she grew up listening to she remembers her father's favourite saying about his beloved jazz idols fondly " they've forgotten more than those musicians you listen to have ever known!"
Louise started her musical career at the age of 5 when she started to learn to play the electronic organ. After a period of playing keyboards for various Nottingham based bands she decided that singers had far more fun and had to lug far less equipment around! And so made the transition to backing and then lead singer in her early twenties.
Having been in bands covering just about every era from the 60's to the 00's, Louise was keen to take on a new challenge and started to cover some jazz songs, inspired by her favourite artists Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan and Eva Cassidy.
Having entertained audiences of up to 10,000 people as diverse as Lebanese night clubbers to music festival goers, Louise is a confident and charismatic entertainer with an engaging soulful and jazzy voice.
Louise's claims to fame include appearing on national TV with Dr Love and the Disco Divas , supporting the Bay City Rollers with Abba's Angels, appearing on the front cover of the Sunday Times Magazine and being supported by the Troggs

She sings the greatest of jazz tunes with her own unique, delightful style and with fresh interpretations. As a jazz vocalist, Louise is continually growing and adding to her repertoire." Mary-Ann Rudd
"At last the phone has stopped ringing and I have a minute to write you a message! We were absolutely thrilled with your performance on Saturday, and so was everyone else! Honestly, if it's possible, it was even better than we expected, and both Robert and I feel you surpassed yourself! Practically every phone call has heaped praise on you and how wonderful you were!" Mr and Mrs Errington, Anniversary Party
Louise has an excellent voice and a great sense of jazz feeling as well as a very attractive appearance - an extremely enjoyable combination!" John Warner.
