South London based singer-songwriter Louis Vann Johnson is best described as a force to be reckoned with. Having played for European artist Patrice Bart-Williams, being featured on BBC London with Robert Elms, performing at Glastonbury as well as writing and performing for various film soundtracks (notably ‘The Hatton Garden Job, ‘Brotherhood’ and critically acclaimed ‘Obey’), the powerful songwriter takes centre stage in emotive new single ‘Backfired’. Blending layers of R&B, Soul and Pop within the latest release, this reflective number brings light to the world’s darkness.
On the enchanting new single, Louis Vann Johnson explains, “Backfired is about finding a relationship in a state of chaos. It explores the journey of recognising, understanding and eventually accepting that there are fundamental incompatibilities/differences in that relationship that cannot be solved overnight.
The song is the beginning of an inward journey where many people have found themselves. It also hints at possible compatibility but it is often hindered/restricted by deeper issues within each individual. Backfired is the first step on this inward journey on my E.P 34/7.”
