Louisa Hall

Singer. Songwriter. Ukulelist.


WHO'S THAT LADY?

Playful and relatable, armed with a ukulele and a rich singing voice, Hall finds honesty and humor in songs about irrational fears, internet dating misadventures, and awkward moments... But despite her sweet sonics, her songs are rarely saccharine and often salty.

Louisa Hall has been enamored of music and silliness for as long as she can remember.  Described as aggressively joyful or Ella Fitzgerald with a comic edge, she encourages audiences to take life a little less seriously.  Louisa has brought her brand of lighthearted (and occasionally creepy) music to stages including the Kennedy Center Millenium stage, The Hamilton Live, the 9:30 Club, and even a Junk boat on Halong Bay, Vietnam.  She is a frequent contributor to The Circus Life podcast,  The Capital City Showcase, and a regular guest of the Nine Songwriter Series.  In addition to playing ukulele, she is also a music educator specialized in teaching novice "ukers" (which is a term for ukulele players she just made up, unless "uker" is really a thing - she does not need credit). She is a regular teacher/performer at ukulele festivals and has taken part in the Strathmore Uke and Guitar Summit, as well as the Charm City Ukulele Festival. She is currently recording an album with Mark Williams of Sucker Punch Recording Co for release in 2018.


Louisa spent some awkward time with the great team behind Unrehearsed DC and new friend Casey Gill. 

During the taping of Episode 23 of The Circus Life podcast at Cue Recording Studios, Louisa Hall performed two songs including this lovely number entitled "Internet Love Song". Enjoy! 

Louisa and Justin Trawick were once stranded briefly in a Naples train station and wrote a song together to pass the time.
