John Louis


John Louis is a Minneapolis-based singer-songwriter who crafts twangy folk songs about love and loss.


Louis writes to connect the personal with the universal: hope and longing, change and regret, love and death, loneliness and kindness.


For fans of Townes Van Zandt, Patty Griffin, Kris Kristofferson and Lucinda Williams.
