Though raised in rural Virginia, enigmatic singer/songwriter Just Loud’s rebellious streak found him striking out on his own at age 15 and making his way to New York City to follow his musical muse. Practicing an infectious mix of funk, soul, rock and vibrant electronic pop, Just Loud writes suitably big-sounding, technicolor dancefloor anthems. His debut EP, Episode 1, crackled with swooning vocals and buzzing synthesizers, and spawned his hit single “Electrified.” Just Loud followed this auspicious debut with the rousing single, “Soul Train,” featuring vocals from the iconic Debbie Harry of Blondie. Just Loud’s forthcoming debut album – due in March – promises to be just as bold. See more about BMI at SXSW.
