Biography

Lou Rhodes is the lead vocalist of chilled downtempo outfit Lamb who are famous for blending trip hop with jazz and elements of drum and bass. Rhodes’ solo work however is more organic and rooted in folk music.

Her 2006 debut solo album entitled “Beloved One” was shortlisted for the Mercury Music Prize and was released through Lou’s own label Infinite Bloom. Rhodes’ second album, Bloom (A&G Records/Infinite Bloom), was released in October 2007. Her third album, One Good Thing (Motion Audio/Infinite Bloom), was released in early 2010.

In 2009, Lamb reunited for a tour and in 2011 they released their fifth studio album 5 and also released their first live album Live at Koko and a DVD Lamb Live at the Paradiso.

Alongside her work with LAMB, Lou continued to work on solo projects. She released her third solo album One Good Thing in 2010 and became an author in 2012 with her children’s picture book, The Phlunk (Strata Books). Follow-up, The Phlunk’s Worldwide Symphony will be published in May 2014. In 2012 Rhodes also contributed an essay to The First Time I Heard The Smiths, part of an ongoing series where musicians/writers tell their stories of first hearing the music of an iconic artist or band.

There is a certain strength found in stillness—a self-possessed beauty that conveys a wealth of emotion without an excess of movement. It’s within this patient, colorful space that singer Lou Rhodes makes her presence felt. As one-half of Lamb, one of the most soulful, vibrant and musically elaborate bands of the last ten years, Rhodes composed intimate meditations on sensuality, longing, struggle, dedication, and the humbling power of true love.
