"Andrea Marini, Luigi Strauss, Kristina Cox, John Rush, Rebecca Orr live at Pivo Pivo, Glasgow"

One man. One guitar. The view from the bar. It's Luigi Strauss. He won't fit into a cocktail glass but he will fit in a pigeonhole and that pigeonhole is of the introspective singer songwriter. Having said that, his songs may look inward but he knows the audience is on the outside and plays his game accordingly. A confident step on the road to fame? Perhaps. - Bluesbunny


"Luigi Strauss"

It’s February 16th, open mic night at The Liquid Ship pub in Glasgow’s Great Western Road. We happen to end up there accidentally after a busy day and listen to various hobby musicians – from middle-aged folk singers to bored-looking girls – while sipping our beers. The third slot on this night’s bill is the one of Lewis Morrison aka Luigi Strauss, a 21-year old Glaswegian student who hasn’t released any records so far. He takes his acoustic guitar and starts into a set that leaves us not only veritably impressed, but also makes us write down his name and contact afterwards (although we normally don’t go to open mic nights to find bands for our sessions). His songs, though, – fragile, unfinished singer/songwriter pieces with occasional wrong notes, but great melodies and a contagious, urgent and very strong emotionality – stick in our heads on the way home, where we then look into his myspace (sure, the recordings are not exactly top-notch…) and webcam home videos on youtube (same here) and decide to get in touch with Lewis for a session. - They Shoot Music Don't They

Bio

Luigi Strauss is the alias of Lewis Morrison, a young singer/songwriter from Ayrshire, who plays songs influenced by greats like Springsteen, Dylan and Bowie to modern bands like The National, The Libertines and Frightened Rabbit.

He is a young man who if always trying to improve every aspect of his music, songwriting and performance.

In the summer of 2010 he was invited out to Vienna by the people at www.theyshootmusic.com after they found him at a Glasgow open mic night.

That was a real gamechanger when he realised that his songs connected with people he had never met and from that point he vowed to continue to develop his sound and recorded his first demos.

This year, the plan has been to gig as much as possible and start playing shows further afield. Also, to record full band arrangements to fulfill the grander nature of the songs.

Luigi Strauss is an ambitious, passionate performer who puts everything into each performance. Don't make your mind up untill you see him live.
