"Louie Zagoras"

“Zagoras knows that guitar heroics can add to a song instead of define it, and his fills throughout the disc and “Sun” bring home the point that a guitar hero need not take center stage to be the hero.”

Louie Zagoras is the founder, lead singer/lead guitarist and the primary songwriter for the band ROLLOVER. He was the first Chicago rock artist to be signed by the legendary Bill Graham Management (Santana, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Neville Brothers, Joe Satriani, etc.). Louie lets his music speak for itself and by his own choice always adds plenty of guitar. He loves and has been influenced by the music of Eric Clapton, The Allman Brothers Band, Jimi Hendrix, George Harrison, Tom Petty and other classic bands/artists. His sound is described as "roots rock meets the blues".

Louie and ROLLOVER toured the country extensively in the 90's when the bands first record broke big on Chicago's 93.1 WXRT-FM radio. Louie's song "Shipwreck" was the break-out single. With the popularity of ROLLOVER's debut CD growing, Bill Graham Management put the band on the road supporting top rock acts like The Allman Brothers Band, Joe Satriani, Sheryl Crow, Blues Traveler, The Neville Brothers, John Hiatt, Hot Tuna, Johnny Winter, Jimmie Vaughan, Buddy Guy, Robin Trower, Cheap Trick, Eddie Money, Atlanta Rhythm Section, and many others.

In 1995, Louie's song "Shipwreck" was featured on A&M Records "H.O.R.D.E. CD Sampler". They were constantly on the road, sometimes spending months traveling from L.A to New York and back again. This gave the band a chance to really develop their sound and tighten up their already exciting live shows. The band did many tour dates supporting Joe Satriani and performed with him in the U.K for a month of sold out shows in 1996. Upon returning to the states the band did two more sold out nights with Joe at the famous Fillmore in San Francisco.

Louie's songs have been used for TV shows (Nash Bridges, Spelling Productions etc.) and movies (Lost and Confused). For the last 17 years, he has been writing songs with Roy Marinell. Roy co- wrote “Werewolves of London”, “Excitable Boy”, and other hits with the late, great Warren Zevon. Louie is also a Producer, Recording Engineer and Session Musician. He produced all of the ROLLOVER CDs as well as the new ‘Twenty Fingers’ solo CD. He has also produced many other artists. Louie is a multi-instrumentalist who plays drums, sitar, bass, harmonica, piano, Hammond B-3, pedal steel guitar, mandolin, ukulele, percussion and many other instruments.

After three nationally distributed CDs and countless tours with ROLLOVER, Louie has just released his first solo CD, “Twenty Fingers” on Isis Records. Produced by Louie and The Herron Brothers, it features top Chicago musicians Jay Davenport on Drums, Ed Stevenson and Mark Gleed on keyboards and former Black Crowes/Jimmy Page bassist Greg Rzab. Joe Satriani says "Twenty Fingers" is a joy to listen to.”
