Reverieme is Louise Connell, an artist who hails from the quaint Scottish market town of Airdrie. Inspired by the myriad books, films and records she has devouredthroughout her life,she creates captivating, haunting songs thatoffer an intriguing glimpse of an inquisitive mindand a unique viewof the world around her.
Having supported Gotye, Newton Faulkner and Emmy The Great on tour, Reverieme hasalready caught the attention of some of the industry’s most acclaimed artists.
After building a reputation as a musical innovator on her first two albums, 2010’s Melodiesand 2013’s With Up So Floating, 2015’s acoustic EP Or Else The Light was released to hugecritical acclaim, setting hearts fluttering with it’s intrinsic beauty and flawless vocal delivery.
This paved the way nicely for the July 2016 release of her first full studio album, StrawWoman, which more than cemented her reputation as one of the finest songwriters of hergeneration, and generated yet more extremely positive press. The album has receivedairplay on BBC Radio 2 (including The Bob Harris Show), BBC Radio 6 (including Planktonbeing names one of Lauren Laverne’s “Headphone Moments”), Virgin Radio, BBC Radio 4(including a live performance on Clive Anderson’s “Loose Ends” programme) and has beenthe featured Album Of The Week on both the Roddy Hart Show and the Iain Anderson Showon BBC Radio Scotland. To date every song on the album bar one has been played at leastonce on national radio.
Having absorbed the musical influence of such diverse artists as NekoCase, Of Montreal,Arcade Fire and Amanda Palmer along with manyothers, she also creates all of her ownartwork, photography andvideos for each release. An artist in charge of every aspect of herproject, Reverieme is an innovator to the very core.
Her evident skill with language is more than matched by herability to pair it with beautifulmelodies to create stunning,timeless songs, the meaning of which is very much left to thelistener.Louise has recently put a highly experienced and skilled band together to recreate the albumlive, and the debut gig for this new line-up was a packed-out and extremely well-received setat the Glad Café in Glasgow. With a new mini-LP scheduled for release in April, and anotherfull album due in October along with shows across the UK and Scandinavia, 2017 promisesto be a definitive year for Reverieme.
