Louise Mosrie

Louise’s British parents emigrated to the U.S. in the 1960’s for work finally settling on a farm on fifty acres in middle Tennessee. Born in Delaware and moving to the South as a child, she had trouble reconciling the two cultures around her and shunned all things Southern. Louise began writing pop/folk songs in her early 20s while living in Knoxville after college, producing two independent albums before moving to Nashville in 2004 to work on her song-craft. She quickly made friends and contacts in the Americana and bluegrass side of Nashville, playing rounds and writing with artists like Donna Ulisse & Rick Stanley, Diana Jones and producer Ray Kennedy. Ironically, the melodies and imagery that emerged most strongly in her writing on "Home" come straight from the southern culture she once dismissed. Influenced by artists such as Nanci Griffith, Allison Kraus and Lucinda Williams, her songs tell stories of joy, love, struggle and heartbreak through the vivid characters and scenery of southern life.

Mosrie got her start by taking top honors at the Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk Songwriting contest and then went on to win or place at several other festival competitions including Telluride Bluegrass, Rocky Mtn. Folks Fest and Falcon Ridge Folk Fest. Her album, “Home”, debuted at #1 on the Folk DJ charts in January 2010. Her latest album, ‘Lay It Down”, was arranged and produced by Cliff Eberhardt and landed on several “Best of” radio lists in 2014.

“Louise Mosrie may well be the brightest young folk-oriented artist to emerge from Nashville in many a year.” – Rich Warren, WFMT-FM, The Midnight Special, Chicago
