Louis Rom�©goux (Louis Rom�goux - Vocals, 12 and 6 String Acoustic Guitar)

Hi. I'm an 18 year old singer/songwriter and frontman in various rock bands based in Sheffield in Yorkshire, England. I've recently started doing solo acoustic gigs. I've been singing for years. I started off by joining the Sheffield Junior Choir when I was 7, a year later I joined the Sheffield Cathedral Choir and became a boy chorister. I also undertook singing lessons and I'm therefore classically trained. I left the Sheffield Cathedral Choir in 1998 as my voice broke much earlier than expected, which was a shame because the choir was great fun...and i got paid which was nice. I've kept up with all things classical and I've sung in the Senior, Madrigal Group, Student and Barbeshop Choirs at secondary school and sixth-form. On the non-classical side of things. My first musical heroes were Jeff Buckley, Neil Young and Creedence Clearwater revival, all three having been introduced to me by my father. I'm still a huge fan of these artists. Jeff Buckleys Grace found its way into my CD player in 1997 and has rarely left. I've been playing the guitar since 1999. I started out on bass but got bored and quickly began playing both acoustic and electric guitar. My first band was called New Transition. I left that band and became lead singer in KarmaSupra (a reggae, punk, metal, dub, ska wacko band that split up in Autumn 2003). I am now lead singer and rhythm guitarist in Feds. Check us out - http://www.songplanet.com/feds I've started playing the piano accordion too. I'm yet to really use it in my music, but my Feds bandmates are encouraging me to use it in Feds! Currently I take influences from Bright Eyes, Willy Mason, The Shins, Death Cab For Cutie, Manu Chao, Bob Marley, Patti Smith, Deftones, Neil Young, Spirit and many bands from the ever expanding Sheffield/ South Yorkshire scene. The four songs on this site are all off my first real attempt at recording a proper CD. I hope you like them, leave a message on www.myspace.com/louisromgoux or email me on louis_romegoux@hotmail.com if you want to join my mailing list etc
