Louise Connell is a singer-songwriter from Airdrie, near Glasgow. Over the course of two critically-acclaimed albums, she has earned a formidable reputation as an outstanding writer with a notable knack for framing intelligent, literate lyrics in haunting and beautiful melodies, delivered by “a voice that would melt iron” (Ravechild)
Having received very positive press for her debut album, Straw Woman (2016), she followed it up with an epic double album, Squall Echo Rale, which met with universal critical acclaim, and was housed in a beautiful sleeve by legendary designer James Marsh, famous for his work with Talk Talk and many others.
Like its predecessor it was Album Of The Week on several Radio Scotland programmes, with the single Careful Unplanned playlisted as the Single Of The Week on The Afternoon Show, and the album was named as one of the Albums Of The Year on BBC Scotland, who filmed and broadcast a 45-minute performance in Glasgow by Louise and her band as part of their Quay Sessions series.
The album received extensive radio support in the UK – within a month of its release all 19 songs had received airplay on BBC 6, Radio 2, BBC Scotland, Virgin Radio, Amazing Radio, Country Hits Radio, and live appearances on Radio 4, Radio X and Radio Scotland. Lauren Laverne twice chose one of Louise’s songs for her “Headphone Moment” on her show on BBC 6.
'The Truth I Suppose I Always Knew' will be released on CD by LNFG featuring her new single of the same name and five previous singles.
