Louise Fraser

You may have heard Louise's songs on the CW, NBC, Lifetime, or MTV.  Or in Jack Black's latest movie, 'Goosebumps' (Sony Pictures). Or the award winning 'Sharkwater' soundtrack. Or on countless other projects involving numerous collaborators. 

From her start aged 16 in a successful London teen pop band, to a jazz guitarist in a 27 piece jazz ensemble, she has gone on to develop a solo career during which she has collaborated with musicians from the Counting Crows and Tom Petty's Heartbreakers; producers including John Fryer (Cocteau Twins, Nine Inch Nails, Depeche Mode, etc), Don Smith (Rolling Stones, U2, Tom Petty, Ry Cooder, etc), and Jean Marc Lederman (Fad Gadget, The Weathermen, etc); and film composer Jeff Rona (Phantom, Traffic, Black Hawk Down, Thin Red Line, etc). 

Louise has released two solo acoustic CDs to date; 'Ghosttown', and 'Thaw'.  On Thaw, Billboard magazine wrote "An impressive feat... exceptional quality and songwriting craftsmanship."

Louise has also released two critically acclaimed EPs under the Muricidae Project with John Fryer (NiN, Cocteau Twins, Depeche Mode, etc): 'Tales from a Silent Ocean' and 'Tears are Stronger Than Waves.' SIDELINE reviewed Muricidae as 'rich vocals very smoothly mixed..a recommended release, we surely hope to hear more', CWN wrote 'a sweet new release wrapped in a glitterball, sharper than a Tom Ford suit... ', and POST-PUNK noted it would 'leave you content in glorious ruin'. 

Louise's latest projects include the Celtic Cinema Collaborative, which harks back to her Celtic roots and features songs in Gaelic and English with arrangements ranging from stripped down solo strings with splashes of dark electronic to fully orchestrated with war drums. And Band of Tinkers, a fluid collective forged to produce massive trailer and end title songs. Collaborators include string virtuoso and orchestrator Martin Tichy (Three Musketeers, Vienna Symphonic), percussionist and producer Josef Peters (Grant Lee Buffalo, Cracker), award winning gold record producer and multi instrumentalist Bernhard Penzias, and film composer Jeff Rona (Phantom, Black Hawk Down).
