"I told my mother, 'Mother, I must leave you, preserve my room but do not shed a tear, should rumour of a shabby ending reach you, it was half my fault, and half the atmosphere'"
- Leonard Cohen, The Traitor
Louis Warner has been composing, producing and performing music for over 20 years. His music straddles the worlds of Americana, electronica, acoustic and experimental rock.
He was a founder member and lead singer of doomed indie rockers The Hotels, before going on to co-found post-rock perfectionists High Above The Storm, who have to date released two albums to critical acclaim. He also sings and plays bass in three-piece garage rockers Electric Hoarse.
His influences and interests in music are deep and wide, from drone ambient, via stoner metal, minimalist techno, post-rock to nowadays mostly enjoying the singer songwriters who’ve set the grief (and oftentimes humour!) bar high; Leonard Cohen, Nick Cave, Mark Linkous, Jason Molina and Gareth Liddiard.
As a solo artist, he’s normally accompanied by an acoustic guitar and sometimes a laptop.
