New solo project featuring collaborators Craig Strain (electric bass), Darryn Farrugia (drums) and Gideon Brazil (saxophones and flute). Created as a vehicle to showcase Louise's original compositions, which have a keen emphasis on rhythm and groove, and the creation of music in the moment.
The group had a fantastic day at Rolling Stock Recording Rooms in Collingwood in May 2018 and followed this up with a performance at the Melbourne International Jazz Festival in June 2018.
The group will be performing next at the Paris Cat in July 2018.
