Louise Distras announces debut album ‘Dreams From The Factory Floor’

Fierce Yorkshire born polemicist Louise Distras has announced details of her debut album ‘Dreams From The Factory Floor’, out 30th September via Street Revolution Records.

Louise Distras is making her own mark as an activist in our urban sprawl. On International Womens Day, she set out to “empower young women” by releasing her debut single ‘The Hand You Hold’. It was angry, pointed and “an anthem for female empowerment”, asking the media: ‘Who are you to say/we should look this way?’

“I’m sick of the way women and young girls are reduced to stereotypes and exploited”, says Louise, who is proud to be putting “the purpose back into pop.”

Fresh from performing on the Leftfield Stage at this years Glastonbury Festival, this summer will see Louise Distras touring in support of her debut album throughout mainland Europe with Street Dogs followed by a Canadian tour this Autumn with The Mahones.

You can bet your last fiver that you’ll be seeing alot more of this talented song-smith in the not too distant future. Most likely hitchhiking, guitar slung over her shoulder on the way to a town near you! For more information visit www.louisedistras.co.uk
