However, he found his calling once more through the guidance of Sekenia Welch, of South County Recreational Services, and his probation officer a few years later. As time moved on, Louie petitioned to open a studio within the same recreational center Sekenia Welch supervised, and with the help of staff member Hector Calazo, he succeeded. The free studio equipment provided him with a rare, and unique, opportunity to expand himself musically, while learning the logistics behind engineering and production. After becoming comfortable with himself as an artist, he linked up with Kevin Pough, also known as DJ Jo'Iyce, and started to perform at a local venue called the Weyone. From the Weyone he progressed into a venture with Orlando Williams and "Privileged Kid" (www.privilegedkid.com), a partnership that gave life to Louie's first project, "Sound It Out" (Released in March of 2010), which he dedicated to his son who was born two months prior.
Performances in his hometown, Richmond, Virginia Beach, and Georgia helped solidify the start of Louie Valles' core fanbase. He's hit the stage with the likes of Nickelus F, tabi Bonney, and Young Dro, and the release of his latest project, "Sumthin' Slight", only proves to show this young emcee surpasses his peers with both musical talent and originality. His ambition, hunger, and commitment play a pivotal role in his success, and regardless of the fact that the music industry is in a dry spell, Louie holds high hopes. His friends, family, and fans believe in his message, image, and quality music.
The only thing that can stop him at this point is complacency or death. www.twitter.com/LouieValles www.louiev.bandcamp.com Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
