Loren Radis is a singer-songwriter on the rise. The 29-year-old is building a strong following on California's Central Coast. He's twice won the "Best Song" prize at the West Coast Songwriters Competitions in San Luis Obispo.
Thousands of fans have viewed his videos on YouTube (Dozens are now posted here: www.youtube.com/deadplant155), ranging from soulful originals to covers of Damien Rice, Death Cab for Cutie, Elliott Smith, Simon & Garfunkel, and a bunch of Beatles songs.
Loren is the son of a pro musician (his dad, Bo Radis), so Loren began playing guitar at age 12, and singing just for fun. But he has seriously developed his songwriting and performing skills in the last two years, finding that emotional release that only music provides. "My songs helped me through some really tough times," he says, "and if they can help other people, then I'm glad."
