Louis Berry has released his most personal single yet with the gospel tinged ‘Stumbling’, produced by Louis, Marcus Foster and Koz (Kendrick Lamar).
‘Stumbling’ allows Louis to showcase his tremendous voice, wrapped around emotionally charged lyrics. “It’s a song about when you’re going through things in life and you keep getting knock backs,” Louis says of ‘Stumbling’. “It’s about having the determination and courage to carry on through hard times and get to a place where you want to be.”
“I’ve spent much of the last year in the studio working on new tracks, forming a new sound,” Louis says. “I’ve been working with Rudimental, Mojam and Koz, a Canadian producer who really got my sound. I grew up listening to 2pac but I’m also a fan of people like Johnny Cash so to merge those two sounds together which is what Koz helped me do, is just very exciting.”
‘Stumbling’ promises great things for Berry’s debut album, set for release this summer. Anyone who has witnessed Louis Berry live knows his performances are as joyful as they are explosive, breathing an infectious intensity into his passionate songs.
On the horizon are residencies in his native Liverpool and London, Live at Leeds and Neighbourhood Festival and support slots with Liam Gallagher in Dublin and Belfast. Louis’ forthcoming album will be followed by a headline UK tour later this year.
