Event

Louise Mosrie at Meeting House Presents
Louise grew up in the small town just outside of Nashville, TN on a farm with British parents and several siblings - riding horses, writing poetry and singing with the radio. After college in Knoxville, she "borrowed" her brother's Sears guitar, bought a simple chord book and started writing songs. The early material was mostly acoustic pop as she tried to channel her English roots while listening to Everything But the Girl and The Sundays.

Fast forward a few years, a move back to Nashville and some deep soul searching, Louise began writing songs about the South  what she knew and where she grew up. In 2008, she began working on a new album eventually to be called Home because shed come full circle in her voice as a writer. The album was a mix of bluegrass, country and folk and as she weaved in lush stories and songs about southern life, she was even introduced once as William Faulkner with a guitar. With those songs, she entered some song contests connected to festivals and ended up winning top awards at Kerrville Folk Festival, Wildflower! Festival, Telluride Bluegrass Festival and Falcon Ridge Folk Festival. Home debuted at #1 on the Folk DJ charts in January 2010 and went on to be one of the most played albums that year for that chart.

Buoyed by a couple thousand earnest fans, she began touring all over the Eastern seaboard, the South and Texas. Audience members would tell her that they enjoyed the stories between the songs as much as the songs and her strong expressive voice was described as like listening to Patty Griffin and Susan Tedeschi at the same time. Shes played at The Bluebird Café in Nashville, Club Passim in Boston, Caffé Lena in NY and was just recently invited to play at The Birchmere in Washington DC.

In 2012, her 15-year marriage ended and her mother was diagnosed with brain cancer and died 6 months later. Out of those dark days came some new songs that would eventually be recorded on her newest release Lay It Down: 10 songs of love, loss and surrender. She collaborated with folk-rock songwriter/producer, Cliff Eberhardt, who envisioned that minimalist arrangements and restrained production would allow the emotional songs and Louises voice a stark relief to rest and shine in.
