A rock and roll star from Kirkby has been revealed as ‘One to Watch’ ahead of Liverpool’s GIT Award at the Kazimier.
Louis Berry, 23, won this year’s One To Watch Prize, which is awarded to one emerging artist and selected by the Merseyside judging panel.
He’s only released one track to date yet was named Radio 1’s “hottest record in the world right now.”
Described by Getintothis’ Peter Guy as “channelling the energy of Jerry Lee Lewis through the story-telling of Dylan”, Berry follows on from the inaugural One To Watch winnerLåpsley, who has gone on to sign a deal with XL Recordings and release her critically-acclaimed debut EP earlier this year.
Berry’s debut offering .45 was tipped by national print press and radio and after playing just two gigs he signed a contract at each; a publishing deal following an explosive BBC Introducing set and recording terms after lighting up East Village Arts Club.
Louis has recently been in London recording more tracks ahead of a first full release. He will celebrate his One To Watch win with a live performance at the GIT Award 2015 ceremony on Saturday April 4.
