Hailing from Croydon, South London, singer-songwriter Louis III has already begun to garner support from heavy hitters like BBC’s Radio1, 1Xtra, i-D, Wonderland, and High Snobiety, carving out a reputation for his candid, beat driven sound. Drawing influence from the culture clash of sounds he grew up around - think classic songwriters Bob Marley & The Wailers, Leonard Cohen, Tracy Chapman via current artists like Major Lazer, Jai Paul, Kanye West - Louis’ tracks have featured as ‘Best New Pop’ on BBC Radio 1, as well as Spotify playlist adds to ‘Soultronic, ‘Chillmatic’, and ‘R&B UK’ amongst others. Louis featured on UK dance-duo Sigma ‘s hit track ‘Anywhere’, racking up over 73 million streams on Spotify to date and gaining a silver certification in the UK, whilst his collaboration with Austrian wunderkind producer filous has amassed over 5 million streams.

Louis was hand picked by Virgil Abloh - Louis Vuitton’s creative director, and Kanye West’s right hand man - to feature in the Louis Vuitton SS20 Men’s show at Paris Fashion week alongside artists including Dev Hynes/Blood Orange.

Louis has made a massive impact on TikTok (632.1k followers and 9.7M likes), pretty much exploded onto the platform with his re-interpretation of great songs “songs written from the other perspective” with his song of Bruno Mars’ hit song Talking to the Moon attracting 16.5M views. in 2021, it saw him featured as TikTok’s nationwide billboard campaign “top 20 unsigned artists” on top of releasing 3 exciting dance collaborations with Kush Kush (Killer) and SLVR & Offrami (Do Anything) and Nick Peters (All the Songs).

This year, Louis had his headline show that sold out a month in advance, and has featured on YOUNOTUS 'Samba' that has gained over 4 million plays on Spotify since it's release in May, the first of many collaborations to come in 2022.
