Regarding his passion for music Lou says this: “Life is a journey, isn’t it? It all started from my first-sight LOVE…drums. which I played at church. I switched to guitar at 14 and after high school, my love for those six strings took a new turn when I started teaching guitar. Honestly, I am mad in love with great rock and roll from that classic era bands like Led Zeppelin, Bad Company, Deep Purple, Kansas and Rush and I was deeply inspired by Nirvana, Soundgarden, Stone Temple Pilots, and Alice in Chains as well. I am always looking to add that modern edge my music. I am a lover of creativity and always try to do different things in order to make sure the listeners are enjoying themselves.
Despite all the ways music has affected me, it will mean very little if I can’t turn around and affect you in a similar way. Music is about sharing passion and bringing together a diverse community by offering a universal language. Yes, I love music, and yes, I want to do it for years and years to come. But, right now I just want to share my passion with the world. That’s the reason I make music and the reason for my presence in the podcasting space. It only takes one person to start a fire. What better reason to start a fire than music?” -Lou
