Louis Warner has been playing and recording music for over 20 years. He was a founder member and lead singer of doomed indie rockers The Hotels, before going on to co-found High Above The Storm, who have to date released two full length studio albums. He also sings and plays bass guitar in three-piece garage rockers Electric Hoarse. His influences and interests are deep and wide, including the singer songwriters who've set the grief and humour bar high; Leonard Cohen, Nick Cave, Mark Linkous, Jason Molina and Gareth Liddiard. As a solo artist, he's normally accompanied by an acoustic guitar and sometimes a laptop.
