About: Louise and Musicians performing at La Marche à Coté, Montreal, October 2021
ABOUT
In 2005, Louise began performing solo at spoken word events, poetry readings, book and art launches, and fundraising events. The response to her fresh, original, and unassuming style has been enthusiastic. She composes and sings for sheer pleasure; songwriting, collaborating, and performing have become a vital part of her life. Music allows her to grow as an emotional being and helps her maintain balance between her private life and her work as a trauma therapist.

Louise has been singing in choirs and ensembles since 1990 and began writing songs for a small vocal ensemble in 1998. She composes in English, French, and on occasion in Spanish; her English compositions are in the folk-roots genre. Her French chanson style is influenced by both Québécois and French chansonniers, composers, and poets. She collaborates closely with the guitarist and arranger, Rodrigo Salazar, who brings depth, diversity, and a touch of Latin influence to her compositions. She performs in cafés and bistros and at fundraising events in and around Montreal, accompanied by Rodrigo Salazar on guitar, Mikhaëlle Salazar on violin and second voice, Olivier Salazar on keyboard, and Sergiu Popa on accordion.
