You might not have heard of Louise Burns but I’m sure you have heard of Lillix or Tigerlily. They had been signed by Maverick Records which was Madonna’s label at the time and garnered 2 nominations at the 2004 Junos. Louise felt herself stuck in a rut, writing “songs for radio”, and soon she decided that the mainstream route was not what she wanted, so she started her own solo project. Her love is 50s and 60s pop and rock, of which you hear major influences in her solo works. Take a listen to What Do You Wanna Do off the future April 2011 release Mellow Drama. You can hear that she’s doing what she loves, but she still shows off her ability to write pop songs.
