About Louise Rutkowski

Described as possessing “a rare, fine voice” (The Metro) and “a cool, classy voice in all its Kate Bush-like athleticism and drama” (The Scotsman), Louise Rutkowski’s performances are not to be missed. Accompanied by pianist Dean Cargill, she brings her own unique interpretations to songs by Randy Newman, Carole King, and Phil Spector, as well as jazz standards and soul classics.

Her career began as a backing singer with The Jazzateers, along with sister Dee, for legendary Scottish label Postcard Records.

The Rutkowski sisters went on to form Sunset Gun with co-writer Ross Campbell, signing to CBS Records in the 1980s; working with soul producer Pete Wingfield and Alan Rankine of The Associates. They thereafter lent their ethereal vocals to 4AD Records' collective This Mortal Coil, garnering an international following.

Louise's distinctive voice can also be heard on the This Mortal Coil follow-up project, The Hope Blister.

In the early 1990s, as part of The Kindness of Strangers with film score composer Craig Armstrong and playwright Peter Arnott, Louise was lead vocalist on "Hope", an album released on Interscope Records. The album included mixes by Dave Stewart (Eurythmics) and Nellee Hooper (Soul II Soul, Madonna, Bjork).

Louise's first solo album, "Diary of a Lost Girl", a piano-led collection of songs co-written with Irvin Duguid, was released in February 2014 to critical acclaim and was shortlisted for the SAY Award (Scottish Album of the Year). Her second, “Home”, is due for release in 2019.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Louise Rutkowski are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
