about

Louis Perritt is a singer/songwriter born in London and raised in Cambridge, UK. At fifteen he recorded his second EP with his band, Maverick who recently played Cambridge Rock Festival and were the youngest band there. Already having supported 'Walkway' (who support Status Quo) and 'Coco and the Butterfields' (winner of UK live and unsigned) Maverick have several gigs lined up including Cambridge Junction, Melbourne Rock Club, and the Rock Den running well into 2017.

Louis started performing at a local folk club at age 8 playing acoustic guitar and singing covers of the Beatles, Roy Orbison and David Bowie. Aged 10 he wrote his first original composition, and by 12 he was already regularly playing with bass player Adam Pollard. They busked together in Cambridge and got spotted (via YouTube!) by local label and promoter R*E*P*E*A*T invited them to perform at local rock venue, The Portland Arms and at local rock festival, 'Strawberry Fair'.

In April this year Louis and Adam joined with fellow 15 year olds, guitarists Adam Vining on lead and drummer James D'Alessandro to form the current line up of the band Maverick.

Support with the likes of Smokin' Prophets, Chase the Ace, Saints of Sin and local bands Matty and the Bullsharks and Deep City quickly followed at venues including Cambridge Junction, Melbourne Rock Club, and The Rock Den. The excited response from fans of all ages was such that the need for a professional recording showcasing the bands qualities became obvious. A PledgeMusic Campaign was launched which exceeded its target within a matter of days; one of the backers was Kimberley Rew (writer of Eurovision smash 'Walking on Sunshine'). This is typical of the support and belief that there is for the band across Cambridge and beyond.

This 6 track ep, is the result of this fund raising, an ep which shows the musical talent or all band members, While influences can of course be detected, the boys are already starting to hone their own distinctive, articulate and memorable voice.

Louis writes about deep-seated emotions reflecting a teen world-view filled with hopes and fears, at times battling against the odds. He cites his influences as “the Beatles, Bowie, Stones, Elvis, Elton John, Nick Cave, all sorts….through to Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd, Radiohead…. Yes, I write the lyrics, and arrange the songs”.

Track 'Chains in the System' is typical of his creative thought : “People are struggling with the system hypnotising everyone to leave college get a job in a factory. Bread and circuses to keep the people entertained and working for them whilst they get richer and we get poorer cause we’re too dumb to stand up and do anything about it everything seems a bit fake. “

Maverick may be still young in years but they are huge in ambition, talent and potential. Come along and enjoy the ride...

Track Name: Uneasy Season
Uneasy Season
When I think of you everything seems small
When I think of you there’s nothing there at all
When I think of you everything seems small
When I think of you nothing’s there at all

All the people are filled with fear cause they know its that time of year
Come with me and you’ll see leaves fall off the holy tree
Dogs bark and eagles fly, demons dark and lovers die
Killers killing for no reason welcome to the uneasy season!

When I think of you everything seems small
When I think of you there’s nothing there at all
When I think of you everything seems small
When I think of you there’s nothing there at all

Yesterday’s clown is turning upside down but when he
Slams the door you still want more to watch him melt into the floor
Step out of line and you will know, make a change and blood will flow
Call me uncivil an outsider any girl that’s different has a demon inside her

When I think of you everything seems small
When I think of you there’s nothing there at all
Track Name: Chains in the System
Chains in the System
Just carry on with your routine
Time spins just like a machine
But every minute every hour
Seem to get to you somehow
Cause you think life’s just flowing on
And I’ll tell you what’s going on

Were just the chains in the system getting on with our lives
Were just the chains in the system we don’t have no lives
Were just the chains chains chains
Were just the chains chains chains

All I ever wanted was a free world
All that I was given was a fake world
Everything that mattered started crumbling down
Everything that mattered burnt into the ground
Cause you think life’s just flowing on
And I’ll tell you what’s going on

Were just the chains in the system getting on with our lives
Were just the chains in the system we don’t have no lives
Were just the chains chains chains
Were just the chains chains chains

Day in day out you search for a meaning
No matter what you do no matter what you try
It’ll beat you up and make you cry
You’re an ant on the foot of one big guy
A chain in the system till the day you die
Track Name: Sleeping in Daydreams
Sleeping in Daydreams
Stuck in the dream you’re trapped inside your mind
And it seems they drove off and left you behind
No light no dark just an empty sky
Like a tree with no bark and your skin has gone dry…
your skin has gone…

You cry like an angel with no god
You get high but don’t even feel odd

It’s been five hundred years flowing down the stream
Your eyes are tired don’t wanna face your fears
So you sleep in your daydreams
In you daydreams

You know someday someone will find
Someone will find you…will find you…

You cry like an angel with no god
You get high but don’t even feel odd
Track Name: Butterflies
Butterflies
Have you seen my Baby?
She wept a million times…but why?
Though she’s sitting next to me
I cannot hear her cries…butterflies

When you’re living in the rain…
When you’re living in the rain
When you’re living in the rain
Watch the sky run down the drain

If you ever loved her
You’d see through my dark eyes
If you’d ever seen her
You’d kill to see the light

Have you seen my Baby
She didn’t say Goodbye…Gotta fly……
Have you seen my Baby?
She’s flying ten foot high

When you’re living in the rain…
When you’re living in the rain
When you’re living in the rain
Watch the sky run down the drain

If you ever loved her
See through my black eyes
If you’d ever seen her
You’d kill to see the light
Track Name: You Gotta Be Strong
You Gotta be Strong
You gotta be strong
You gotta hold on
Your head is tired and your heart is sore
Your bed is broken so you sleep on the floor

You gotta be strong
You gotta hold on
When the love you gave can’t carry on
The love you had has went and gone

And when the sun goes down you’ll see
The sky is a blanket falling down
Falling down falling down to the sea
Deep inside your heart you’ll find its love
Standing in the cold
And you’re forgotten
It rains it pours her name you call
The tear drops fall you’ve seen it all

You gotta be strong
You gotta hold on
When your head is tired and your heart is sore
Your bed is broken so you sleep on the floor

You gotta be strong
You gotta hold on
When the love you gave can’t carry on
The love you had has went and gone

I remember when we’d laugh and sing
I gave you my life and everything
But I am everything that you’ve even known
All you ever did was scream and moan

You gotta be strong
You gotta hold on
When your head is tired and your heart is sore
Your bed is broken so you sleep on the floor

You gotta be strong
You gotta hold on
When the love you gave can’t carry on
The love you had has went and gone
Track Name: I Love the Chaos
I Love the Chaos
A million clouds eating up the black sky that
surrounds you
Angels fall down demons learn how to fly
You’re a slave on this earth until you die

Hell engulfs the earth
Heaven’s got nowhere to hide
A forest of monsters breaking down the gates
Even God said that it’s too late

I love the chaos I love the destruction
I love the chaos we’re only having fun
I love the chaos I love the destruction
I love the chaos we’re only having fun

I love the chaos I love the destruction
I love the chaos we’re only having fun
I love the chaos I love the destruction
I love the chaos we’re only here to have fun

Screams and shrieks from the valley bellow
For some it’s a butchers for some it’s a show
Thunder and lightning its as cold as ice
Jump right in and don’t think twice

We love the chaos we love the destruction
We love the chaos we’re only having fun
We love the chaos we love the destruction
We love the chaos cos we’re only having fun

We love the chaos we love the destruction
We love the chaos cos we’re only having fun
We love the Chaos. Destruction. Chaos having fun?
