ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Big LLou Johnson was born and raised on the rough and tumble west side of Chicago. He is often compared to the likes of Barry White and Isaac Hayes. His sultry bass voice has appeared on numerous tv and radio commercials and he has appeared on stages across the US and Europe performing blues, choral, pop, R&B and gospel touring with the likes of Albertina Walker, The Barrett Sisters and the Oak Park Concert Chorale.

Big LLou has appeared as a guest vocalist on numerous projects but "They Call Me Big LLou" is the first solo effort from this emerging and versatile artist, whose influences include the likes of Howlin Wolf, Willie Dixon and Barry White, which he pays tribute to with Keith Stewart's arrangement of "Your Sweetness is my Weakness".

Some of his film credits include “Barbershop I & II” with Ice Cube as well as “Let's Got to Prison” starring Dax Sheppard and Will Harnett. He has also been a featured vocalist on soundtracks from "Dorota Jarema" of Warsaw, Poland and "The Longshot Sessions - The Soul of R&B" a compilation of Chicago top male R&B singers. "His single and the subsequent remix of "Step Wit Chu" became a radio & club favorite with steppers and true R&B fans across the globe. He is also a featured vocalist on the CD "Bound to Go" with Chicago folk music favorite Andrew Calhoun & Campground.

He is a sought after emcee, hosting some of the biggest events in blues including, The Blues Music Awards in Memphis, The Legendary Rhythm & Blues Cruise as well as festivals across the US. As the beloved voice of BB King's Bluesville on Sirius XM satellite radio, Big LLou credits that long-time association as the reason he fell in love with the blues all over again!

What the reviewers have said...

Llou knows what he wants.. and by all accounts he's going to get it. Big LLou is one I would like to hear more of!
Barry Towler, Soulschoonz.

The deep baritone voice of Big LLou salutes Barry White and Issac Hayes, but Llou is not a copykat. Vocals and rap are smooth as a fine cognac!
All that smooth Urban Jazz

Big Llou's Golden Voice
Big Llou's golden voice has picked up where Barry White left off...and he's got the BLUES!!! I'm really enjoying this CD. It's funky, soulful and smooth, and has that one of a kind voice that just makes you melt. A great blues album from a fine southern gentleman. I'm really looking forward to Big Llou's next CD because I've just about worn this one out already!!!
