About Louise Adams (VIC)

South Australia's Louise Adams describes herself as a late bloomer in the music industry. "I didn't sing in front of too many people until I was 25, 26," she says. "I still recall the look of shock on my parents faces when I first picked up the guitar and sang a song."

  The 31-year-old enthralled at auditions with a captivating version of Nina Simone's Feeling Good. "It was outstanding yet totally understated," Dannii said. Before finding music, Louise worked as a lawyer. Her style is an eclectic blend of blues, rock, soul and folk. Blessed with a strong and gravelly voice, she's developed a flair for writing original music and lyrics. A regular on the festival circuit, she's played successful shows in Melbourne, Bendigo, Adelaide, Castlemaine, Mount Gambier, the UK, South America and New York. She's also been the front woman of Louise and the Tornados, who've enjoyed sell-out shows at the Adelaide Fringe Festival and supported the likes of Jeff Lang, Mia Dyson and The Backsliders. The married mum of one-year-old daughter Frankie is looking forward to sharing her unique style and sound with Australia. "I saw The X Factor as a great opportunity to work with amazing folk in the industry and maybe score a record deal. I love a challenge and believe you have to give things a go!"
