Louise Killeen – Brilliant Tease

On Release in Ireland – Friday May 11th

Confirmed to guest with Hue & Cry at Vicar Street, Friday 11th May 

“Louise's wonderful refreshing lyrics and catchy melodies stand out like a beacon”- Joe Giltrap Irish Post

“seriously radio-friendly, entirely likeable and listenable” – David Kidman, NetRhythms, Folk Roots UK

"Louise has a unique style and sings her own original material with a very melodic and a great voice." Mary Black

“This album has the wings to fly – just watch it soar” - Tim Carroll – Folk Words Magazine

"Louise Killeen is a unique Irish woman. She has a unique story to tell. On Brilliant Tease she tells her story with great honesty, great songs and a sweet production. It is more brilliant than tease, because it delivers." - Luka Bloom

Bold, fresh, adventurous and chock-full of laid-bare lyrics, Louise Killeen's “Brilliant Tease” is unflinchingly honest.  Hailing from a small town in the Midlands of Ireland, Louise Killeen has managed to stamp her identity and roots all over her work while still resonating with audiences where ever she plays.  During April Louise with Brendan Emmett had over the sizeable audience glued on every word and laughing out loud also!

“Killeen grew up as a gay woman in a small town in Ireland, and is wonderfully open about her sexuality. Unflinching in how much her songs have her heart on their sleeve, this lady is one of those who it’s not an exaggeration to call an ‘artist’s artist’ - Shelley Marsden The Irish World Newspaper UK

It's difficult to nail down what some are calling a magic genre.   David Kidman of NetRhythms UK says; “The basic demeanour and character of Louise’s music, is a kind of love-child of folk and pop, harks back to the late-60s Denny & Strawbs (Ease Up On Me Dear), Judy Dyble (Coalmines) or the deceptively easygoing early-70s s/s like James Taylor (This Love). It’s all seriously radio-friendly, entirely likeable and listenable”.

Louise first came to the public’s attention during RTE’s 2005 season of tv show ‘Your A Star’.  Since, Louise has being enjoying gigging and her song writing.  With two prestigious song-writing contest victories in the bag, Louise Killeen has already made a strong impression.   Louise has torn up the rule book with "Brilliant Tease".  Her collection of songs is a refreshing mix of intimacy and quirky fun.  The album is already on digital release from iTunes and the physical release follows in Ireland on May 11th. 

Laid-back with the air of a seasoned journeywoman who has served her apprenticeship, Louise Killeen's influences include icons such as James Taylor and Simon & Garfunkel.  However, make no mistake; “Brilliant Tease” is no homage to anything that has gone before, ploughing her own furrow it's bright and ballsy, and has all the potential to be one of the best things you'll hear in 2012.
