 LOUIS BARABBAS

Composer / Lyricist

Louis Barabbas is a writer, performer and label director, best known for caustic love songs and energetic stage shows. In the past he presented a weekly radio show, was on the advisory board of Un-Convention and mentored for Brighter Sound.

In 2006 he formed Louis Barabbas & The Bedlam Six. The band was together until 2016 and released three studio albums, one live album, two EPs, a DVD and toured all over the world, sharing the stage with such disparate acts as Motorhead & Supergrass.  As well as The Bedlam Six, Louis has performed and collaborated with Kirsty Almeida, Liz Green, Felix Hagan, Tom Hingley, Rioghnach Connolly, Hope & Social, Bridie Jackson, John Otway and Becca Williams.

Louis passionately believes in the unifying force of music – that good songs have the power to educate, entertain and console. One day he hopes to write one that does all three.
