"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'"
- L. 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. 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 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.
