Louise Parker is a Jazz and Soul vocalist based in Plymouth.                               

She grew up in a house filled with music - from folk, calypso & opera enjoyed by her Jamaican-born mother to trad, swing & be-bop by her jazz-obsessed father. 

She was aptly named after Louis Armstrong and was born to create the sort of soulful sound that is earning her a great reputation in the jazz world.
