I'm a fan, no doubt about it, this guy is a true performer and an inspiration. He writes great songs and thrives on stage, besides that he he has a wonderful name, third time around.
I've done sound for Loudon a few times and have always stood behind the mixer grinning and lapping it up. I believe he hung out with the Norwegian artist Lars Lillo before the gig, they both write quirky lyrics. He struggles with a jet lagged guitar and jokes through a totally enjoyable evening down in this weird shopping center club on the waterfront.
Give him a listen and then buy his music!
