17th October saw Liverpool lad, Louis Berry take to the intimate stage at The Boiler Room to give the audience a taste of his talent and show off all he had to give.
His swagger and stage presence oozes confidence while his modern rock and roll sound conbined with his unique and addictive voice radiates soul. Throughout the entire set he had the crowd at his beck and call and having been the only artist I have seen to swig Jack Daniels straight from bottle, he was certainly up for a good night.
The up and coming artist has spent the summer touring and playing festivals, building a fan base that will inevitably follow him as he conquers the music scene. Opening the set with Rebel, Nicola and .45 before he even spoken got the crowd rared up and the atmosphere in the venue was immense. The energy that Louis and his band put into the performance was admirable and when Louis swapped his guitar to acoustic, the tempo changed to hear the beautiful lyrics of Laurie.
Berry’s gravelly tones gave each song a personal touch and again, he made reference to his thoughts on those that do not write their own songs, further proving that his talent doesnt just lie on stage but also in the studio when he writes.
Louis Berry clearly enjoyed every moment on that stage and fed off the energy that the crowd were giving off. Of course there was only one way to end such a strong and incredible set and that was with She Wants Me which gave everyone in the room one last chance to dance, jump and sing out loud.
If you get the chance to see Louis Berry play live I would thoroughly recommend it. A set and performance to rival even the most established of artists and a lyrical genius with a keen eye for audience enticement, a proper entertainer!
