Recorded & written both in London & overseas in America in legendary cities of NYC & Los Angeles, Louis VI’s debut Album SUGAR LIKE SALT, is the bridge over the Atlantic the genres of hip hop, soul & jazz have been waiting for. Having produced most of the album himself, working with the likes of Chicago rapper Mick Jenkins, Jowin (producer for Isaiah Rashad), Moses Boyd (London MOBO award winning Jazz drummer), Nubya Garcia, Jelani Blackman, Melo-Zed, Nikki Cilsyn, & Emile Martinez (horns for Anderson Paak, Iman Omari, SiR, MNDSGN) to name just a few, his collaborations speak volumes on the vibe of Louis VI as an artist.

With nearly 2 Million Streams of the Album since it recently dropped this Summer, he says “It’s crazy, I wrote a lot of it with my laptop strapped to the passenger seat in the car, Ableton on record, playing the beats off my phone and just driving in LA, London, NYC, freestyling melodies and ideas till I felt it felt right. I guess other people are feeling that honesty too!”
VIPER Magazine described it as “a reflective, conceptual journey filled with poignant storytelling, deep emotionality and the ever-present energy of phenomenal, contemporary jazz. Louis effortlessly transcends genres, mixing classical influences with his urban flare, rapping skilfully over melodic beats and grabbing listeners with every verse.”

Now the album is out digitally, named as one of the winners of the Emerging Artist programmed by PRS & PledgeMusic, selling out his first headline show back in September 2 months in advance & hotly tipped as a sound of 2019, Louis wants to continue the buzz & momentum by pressing the album to Vinyl for the many fans & supporters that have clamoured for it, as well as launching his merch line ‘Misfit MafiaTM ’ & continuing by taking the album live on a big scale with a huge headline show at Ghostnotes in February. "As an independent artist it’s hard; budget is a constant blocker of your creativity so you have to be just as creative with how you handle that as you are with the music", Louis says.

A young London mixed-race rapper & producer, Louis VI is working hard on new music to release in the new year as well with no doubt some phenomenal collaborations from new artists if SUGAR LIKE SALT is anything to go by. Pre-order the album & merch exclusively on here before general release as well as a limited number of AAA access behind the scenes chances to get to visit & even work with Louis in his new London studio.
