The ShortListen: Louis Berry (no. 371)

Who? Louis Berry

What’s the story? Liverpool singer-songwriter has been building a serious buzz in the last twelve months, with his blend of rock 'n' roll, blues and folk, with some even comparing him to a young Johnny Cash. However, while his three previous videos have seen the more raucous side of his work, this brilliant new track Restless, (which we're premiering here on the ShortListen) showcases the versatility of his raspy, warm voice. Beginning with gentle acoustic strumming, it soon builds, via some lovely atmospheric production to become a beautifully wistful, propulsive track. The title suits the song: this is the perfect track to soundtrack a summer roadtrip across some American heartlands (or just as good, heading home to Liverpool on the M62).

For fans of: Saint Raymond, Jake Bugg

In three words: Widescreen Roadtrip Acoustica
