I had to step away...

Dear Lovely You,

This past month, I did something that caused me great anxiety and self-doubt. I took a month off of performing. If my calculations are correct, this is the first month I’ve taken off in YEARS of playing. It’s no secret that I’m a gig junkie and feel at home on stage (always have).

That’s why when I noticed the signs of burn out, I got very scared. I didn’t want it to mean that I didn’t love doing music anymore - and it didn’t. But what it DID mean was that I needed to take a break. I needed to go soak up some inspiration, live life for a bit, and get back to my writing.

That’s been the goal and mission of the month. I’ve been changing the way I choose to share. I kicked off my brand new Patreon community. And I plan to share more of what I’ve been up to, my songwriting and creative process, and never-before-heard demos.

It’s not easy to step away from something I love but I know it won’t be for long. This month, I’m headed back into the studio AND back to Macon for a show with my fellow songwriters at the Society Garden (a new venue for me!). If you’re in Macon on the 29th, check my ‘live’ page for all of the details so we can hang!

Because I took some time, I feel rejuvenated and ready to create in a new and exciting way for you all again… Thank you for being along for the ride.

Stay tuned like my guitar! ;)

Love,

Louise

Dear Lovely You...

Dear Lovely You,

You may have noticed that I’ve been executing a lot of change lately.

I used to crave change in my life like chocolate. Then, all of a sudden it got a bit too heavy for me - just like childhood sweets. It was winter. My heart was broken. Change had decided to be cruel.

So I shut myself off to it. I started playing it safe. I started holding in my music.

It took creating + releasing “Lavender Sound” + “Surrender” to even feel like myself again.

Its been a 3 year process. Which, is good. 3 is my lucky number after all. And I feel the wind whispering to me once again, “It’s time.”

It’s time for change + I to see eye to eye again. It’s time for us to make up.

I write this from a new town - wise, old Savannah. I write this from a new head space, with new sounds that I’m humming along to.

I write this from a new beginning.

Love,

Louise

Lvl to the Room reviews "This Could Be Love"

"There’s a certain raw talent that filters through Louise Warren. Her voice sounds like the long lines of a pen as its letters loop through tender words and unrefined penmanship. “This Could Be Love” is a written message on the back of a postcard. Warren’s talent is like letter-reading because sending a letter is the next best thing to showing up personally at someone’s door. That’s the intimate approach she’s able to capture with this single." -Hope Ankney
