What people say
“[Her] debut EP Glamour Vintage Songbird [is] a five-tracker full of introspective soul and delightful bounce”
“'More Than Just That Bass' is the perfect introduction track to the world of Miss Lou for anyone who isn't familiar with the singer. The title of the EP is indication enough of what Lou's music entails, but the debut single encompasses everything about the classic vintage pop artist. She has her sights set on spreading positivity and it shows in 'More Than Just That Bass', a track that promotes body positivity right from the get-go with the opening line”
“And though, at 23, Miss Lou may seem a little young to be riffing music made in the heyday of jazz-pop –she makes it work to a T on the EP, with a voice that recalls Ella Fitzgerald, Dinah Washington or Peggy Lee.”
“Every year, the NAC's Noise Music Mentorship programme for budding musicians uncovers gems like jazz-pop singer Miss Lou (real name Lou Peixin), [who] could well win over regional fans in the future with [her] distinctive [voice] and songwriting chops.”
