Louis Ledford

Louis Ledford “Louis Ledford is a great songwriter; witty, insightful, and observant regarding the oddities of human behavior. There is a real powerful air of truth in his music.” – J. Kelly, Creative Loafing, Atlanta “Ledford’s attention to lyrical detail is simply stunning.” -J. Holgren, Music Magazine Although a city kid born and raised in Richmond, VA, Louis Ledford’s familiar roots lay in Western North Carolina and Southwestern Virginia where as a child he soaked up the rural culture and music. Ledford spent much of the 1990’s fronting and writing songs for the Alt Country band Used Carlotta. He borrows from Randy Newman his style of crawling inside a character and presenting the songs as visually as possible. Ledford cites Raymond Carver, Charles Bukowski, John Fante and William Faulkner as influences. “I see myself as a storyteller. My songs are like very short stories.”
