Louis Coupe Louis Coupe From his beginnings as the outcast in the music class, Louis Coupe has forged his own path through a sheer passion for his music. Fashioning together a diverse and experimental, yet classic sound, Louis channels all the egos of the 70s into his introspective piano-led songs. It was a surprise ticket to see Elton John that saw a then 12-year-old instantly obsessed with the pioneering greats of popular music - The Beatles, The Stones, ELO. Sat for hours searching for internet video tutorials, Louis set about teaching himself any instrument he could find. Discovering his home playing in bands from the age of 16, Louis soon found himself playing up to 150 live gigs a year, honing his craft performing anywhere that would take him – anything from the smallest of clubs and pubs, to festivals, boats, to family and friends front rooms. Now 24, his extensive time earning his stripes out on the road, as well as a rebellious and maverick attitude to music keeps him grounded with a distinct disregard for any musical ‘rulebook’ – an ethos he stays firmly true to. Contrasting his confident and dynamic live show, Louis’ carefully crafted writing encompasses a frank and cynical perspective on his life with raw, honest discussions on relationships and anxiety, showing a quiet and vulnerable side to an audacious frontman. With eclectic sounds and melodies akin to the likes of Bowie and Father John Misty, mixed with the delicate lo-fi vibes of Jeff Buckley and Bon Iver, Louis Coupe’s music is scarily personal while boldly nostalgic.
