Francesca Louise shines in ‘Ride the Waters’

Folk pop singer-songwriter Francesca Louise has released her new single, the melodic and empowering ‘Ride the Waters’. The song follows on her from her April release ‘Out of Sight (Out of Mind)’ and will form part of Louise’s forthcoming debut EP Melancholic Antidote.

Originally from the North West of England, Francesca Louise now lives in London. The new release is about how one can be self-dependent and able to be successful on their own. Louise explains, “So many young girls feel that they need someone beside them to be able to progress and find success in their lives, but this song suggests the opposite. It is an encouraging anthem for independent and powerful young women.”

‘Ride the Waters’ shines with its warm guitar melodies and strong percussion. Louise’s vocals are heartfelt, magical and even a bit cheeky, exploring the realisation that she is better off standing on her own two feet. In her vocal journey, she is self-assured, invigorating and honest. Fans of Joni Mitchell and Carole King would especially appreciate her authentic delivery.

Francesca Louise has supported the likes of The Harmaleighs, Echobelly and Juanita Stein of Howling Bells. Her music has also been played on independent radio stations and featured via live sessions on BBC Introducing. Her debut EP Melancholic Antidote will feature a collection of personal experiences and life lessons, as well as musings on emotions and personal growth. If ‘Ride The Waters’ is anything to go by, then the EP is set to be a comforting, reassuring and enjoyable listen. Melancholic Antidote will be out later this year.
