Following UK and world tours supporting Laura Mvula and Oddisee respectively, playing Sonar this year, and collaborating with a varied list of producers/artists such as Hudson Mohawke, Bibio, Jazzanova (on unreleased album The Pool), Onra and C2C as a singer/songwriter, the Washington DC-born, Berlin-residing Olivier St. Louis now previews his debut LP with Wondering Wanderer.
“Just because I’m wondering, doesn’t mean I’m lost”…
In a world buzzing with the ever increasing noise of the web; silence to find “self” is becoming a space of imagination. With fear of failure and the lie of instant success, individuality is more dependent on subscription rather than the sum of one’s influences. Now realizing the “authentic you” is less “whom am I?” and more “who am I like? “. The vale of virtuality thickens. Stepping out on a REAL limb is now just “too risky”.
Within this binary Babel exists the ‘few’. Those with a sense of purpose, who despite imminent pitfalls, are willing to wander the desolation of the unknown in search of real meaning.
“Just because I’m wandering doesn’t mean I’m lost”.
