Louis Rive

I am a singer-songwriter who writes what I would term ‘narrative folk music’. I draw on the rich tradition of Scottish storytelling musicians, a broad range from Michael Marra to Hamish Imlach, to hip hop and spoken word artists such as Empress and Stanley Odd. Scotland has a really vibrant storytelling culture, and the characters, places, and issues that play a role in our everyday lives serve as an inspiration for the music and lyrics that I write. I am fascinated by language in modern Scotland, so use Scots, English, and Gaelic in order to convey a sound of the modern nation. My music has always thrived in intimate settings in which audience interaction is absolutely key to the performance. So in terms of genres, it falls broadly under ‘folk’ music, though ‘singer-songwriter’, ‘acoustic’ and ‘spoken word’ are also relevant
