Australian singer Louise Adams’ career is just beginning since becoming The X Factor Australia’s runner up in 2015. Her journey on the show demonstrated that she was one of the series’ most astounding performers; with her debut album Louise Adams she was able to revisit the songs she recently performed on the show. With her incredibly soulful voice it’s easy to hear how and why she advanced far into the competition.
Louise’s debut single History was penned by independent Nashville musicians Daphne Willis, Jeffrey James and Justin Halpin; coming from a former X Factor contestant it’s more of a subtle pop ballad than an upbeat chart topper. What’s great about Adams is her versatility; from her raw take on Cherry Ghost’s People Help The People to her rocking crack at the classic Feeling Good.
It’s great when the more older and iconic hits are given new life. Adams’ vocal performance on Dolly Parton’s hit Jolene is commendable; her rendition of Nancy Sinatra’s Bang Bang is also memorable. Fan favourites would include more recent hits like Adele’s Someone Like You and George Ezra’s Blame It On Me; both respective tracks were treated with some of Louise’s vocal magic.
Louise Adams sure is one talented individual and you get to experience her voice forever with her debut album. Her tone has a uniqueness to it and boy does she have major control of her technique. Her renditions of songs old and new are breathtaking and striking; and her debut original single History is the icing on the cake. Louise Adams relives the journey of one of The X Factor Australia’s most promising talents.
