Louise Connell premieres the music video to ‘ILO’ prior to the release of the EP ‘Squall’ here exclusively on MarkMeets.
Louise Connell (ex-Reverieme) is a singer-songwriter from Airdrie, near Glasgow. Previously performing and releasing her music under the name REVERIEME, she has earned a considerable reputation as an outstanding songwriter, with a particular knack for framing intelligent, literate lyrics in haunting and beautiful melodies, delivered by “a voice that would melt iron” (Ravechild).
Louise will release a series of three EPs (Squall, Echo and Rale), each of which will reflect a slightly different aspect of Louise’s writing and performance.
Inspired by the myriad books, films and records she has devoured throughout her life, Louise Connell creates captivating, haunting songs that offer an intriguing glimpse of an inquisitive mind and a unique view of the world around her, and writes with an depth and intelligence that very few can match. Watch the beautiful video further below.
Having previously been responsible for every aspect of her creative output – designing all her own artwork, creating all her own videos, doing her own photography etc (all captured in the beautiful limited edition “Words and Pictures” book which sold out quickly on her Pledge page) as well as writing all the songs too, working with another artist on designs for her records was an entirely new experience for Connell, and one which she absolutely loved.

“Stunning, raw and authentically beautiful” – MarkMeets Entertainment
Her first studio album, Straw Woman (2016), was released to consistent critical acclaim and overwhelmingly positive reviews, and was the featured Album Of The Week on several BBC Radio Scotland programmes as well as receiving general airplay on Radio 2, Radio 6 (Lauren Laverne’s “Headphone Moment”), Radio 4, Virgin Radio and Amazing Radio.
Having performed at various festivals during the summer, both solo and with her band (Belladrum, Solas Festival, XpoNorth, Butefest, Jocktoberfest, Parkfest, North Hop etc) the remainder of 2017 will see a number of live appearances across the UK, Germany and Sweden, including a launch gig for the Squall EP at Glasgow’s O2 ABC2 on October 26th.
Recently, her work has come to the attention of legendary artist and designer James Marsh. Famous for his wonderful illustrations for records by Talk Talk, Jamiroquai and many others, James drew inspiration from Louise’s newest songs to create a series of beautiful designs for her forthcoming releases, which will be the first records released under her own name Louise Connell.
The first EP, Squall will be released on October 20th, with parts 2 and 3 (Echo and Rale) following in January and March 2018 respectively.
