Bio: In a word, musician Lou DiPietro is an artist – an authentic voice and lyricist, seasoned songwriter, expert guitarist, and versatile producer who’s breathing fresh life into the broad and diluted label of “singer-songwriter.” His solo-acoustic project, Louiston, sonically orbits somewhere between M. Ward, Damien Jurado, Arlo Guthrie, Elliott Smith, and the up-tempo punk rock of his formative years. He’s performed solo up and down the east coast for more than 10 years.

Stage specs: I’m small and travel light – my acoustic, a mic, stand, and a small amp. I’ve occupied full stages and tiny barroom corners of little more than 4 square feet. For venues with a PA, I’ll need a direct-in for my acoustic and a vocal mic and stand. Maybe a chair. That’s it.
