Louise Distras

Louise Distras is this week’s special guest in The Moonshine Sessions....

A rallying cry for radical change, Louise Distras channels her experiences of homeless in her youth youth and her anger at inequality into rabble rousing folk rock. Distras has caught the eye of the critics with Kerrang! calling her “The most exciting voice in UK punk right now", a sentiment seconded by the esteemed veteran John Robb whose coverage on her in his Louder Than War page described her music as "Big electric punk anthems for yet another let down generation, and a searing lyrical clarity from the gutter looking at the stars”.
