It is said to choose your superlatives wisely. However, leaving them out, describing Soul & RnB whizkid LOU ASRIL is close to impossible. He might still be a teenager, but manages to extract the Soul in his voice exactly from where it lies within – in between a fast pumping heart, and a tingly feeling stomach, leaving us both breathless and tongue-tied.

Starting a classic piano education at 11, he formed a band at 15 and began performing his songs right around this time. At 17 he won the Joe Zawinul Award, landing him a spot in a songwriting sessions in Los Angeles. 2019 brought his first public offering “Divine Goldmine“ as well as a definite start to his live career, conquering the stages with his groovy, velvety sounds that draw inspiration from acts like Solange, The Weeknd or Drake.

His mini-LP “louasril” (ink Music) was then released on March 13th, 2020 exclusively on vinyl and digital. Lou Asril is also nominated twice for the Amadeus Austrian Music Awards 2020 (FM4 Award and Alternative Award).
