A much loved and highly respected figure on the UK jazz scene, Scottish jazz vocalist Louise Dodds released her first album in 9 years 4th March 2022. The album, ‘The Story Needs an Ending’, is also Louise’s first fully original album. She is currently touring the UK on a 10 date album tour.
“strongly cathartic” - Jazzwise
Recorded in Glasgow in June 2021 with fellow Scots Tom Gibbs, Andrew Robb and Alyn Cosker, the album contains 10 tracks which Louise wrote by delving deep into her own life experiences, touching on subjects like grief, relationships, learning to trust life again, and emancipation. Many of the tracks were written during lockdown, with some being showcased as part of Louise’s lockdown collaboration project, ‘Songs From The Blue Room’. The series saw Louise collaborating with artists from around the globe on acoustic versions of her own material, including Elchin Shirinov, Maurizio Congiu, Gro-Marthe Dickson, Alan Benzie and Graeme Stephen. The series was even picked up by press in Russia, Azerbaijan and France.
During lockdown, Louise also collaborated with London jazz guitarist Ant Law, resulting in the single Whispers (Credits) being released (as well as this rendition of Coltrane’s 26-2!)
