With no links to the mainstream musical industry or signed to any record label, LUIS is a truly independent artist that very few people have ever heard of. A tireless singer-songwriter and skilled improviser, LUIS performs and records whatever he wants whenever he wants, making his music unique and always surprising.
Classically trained on the piano by spanish pedagogue Miguel Gomis, LUIS started writing his own music at a very young age using only a tape recorder and his beloved upright piano to record his own home made “mix tapes” of original material. Now LUIS uses many instruments to write and record and has released many projects digitally including his latest single RED CAR, available as a maxi-single EP worldwide via Bandcamp. A one track single version of the song is also available in all major digital stores.
LUIS formed part of the emerging funk music scene of the Madrid of the 90’s and at his early 20’s played at the first Jazz Festival of Tunis with the Francisco Molina Trío. Since then LUIS has formed part of many different music projects worldwide including music for film and music teaching. Many of LUIS’s former students and collaborators are now part of different successful bands and formations worldwide.
LUIS resides currently in London where he has collaborated, played with and learned from some of the best performers, songwriters and sessions musicians of both the UK and the international music scene.
At present, LUIS is working & performing alongside musicians/songwriters Fernanda Balata & Michael Rodwell in the original formation RIVER BIRD.
LUIS will be releasing his first physical original album in 2014.
