Louise Mosrie: Guestbook

I was just poking around on Youtube to see if anybody had ever written a song about the Battle of Blair Mountain, a disgraceful tale of corporate control resisted in West Virginia. The state and local governments were basically a fiefdom of the coal companies. Believe it or not, the leaders were actually tried for the death penalty for treason against the state in an attempt to break the fledgling United Mine Workers. The prosecutors were not the normal elected people, but coal company attorneys. The leaders were acquitted by juries after getting the case moved to a non-coal producing county. The US government dropped chemical weapons left over from WW1 on our own citizens, although most of the pilots "goofed" and dropped them in the rivers. This is a wonderful song, minimalist, yet poignant, and the unnamed background strings are done just right. This is a near forgotten incident that needs to be memorialized. The miners who died there would be proud.

You are still as beautiful as I remember from high school. I didn't know you could sing like you do. What an absolutely beautiful voice.

I really enjoyed your performance in Jacksonville at the Riverside Arts Market this weekend. I am so glad that I was hungry and at the same time that I sat down to eat you came on stage. I am a proud owner of "Home" and look forward to memorizing several of your special songs. I friended you on facebook because I really appreciate what you do for a living and I think that you have a tremendous gift. My parents recently moved to Gatlinburg, I have decided to plan my visits with them in conjunction with making a trip to Nashville to watch you perform. I wish you all the best!


June 18, 2012

Hey Louise! We'll miss you here in Telluride too!
I'll sport a moustache in your honor!
I'm up here early this year, just takin' in the beauty and the vibe. Wish you were here!
Have a great tour and good luck at Falcon Ridge.
Take care,

Thanks so much for taking time to talk with Alex at the house concert in NYC last night. When I spoke with her this morning for Father's Day she said how much she enjoyed the music and meeting you and Anna.

Safe travels. Hope to see y'all in the south sometime soon.

Hey Louise,
I see that you are playing at a house concert in NYC on June 16th. My daughter, Alex, cannot make it down to see us for my family's reunion because of her rehearsal schedule Father's Day weekend, but she can come to your concert. We have told her all about the times we have seen you and Anna in Morganton and Asheville.

I hope you get to meet her at the house concert. We look forward to seeing you in Morganton or nearby soon.

I'm very sorry for your loss. My father just recently passed and I know what a soul twisting experience it can be.
We recently became Louise fans after catching your show at the snowbird lodge and will see you soon in NY at the house concert.
All the best

Louise, my family and I were blown away by your performance at the Wildflower Festival yesterday. Such powerful stories told in each song, and your voice is hauntingly beautiful. I look forward to singing along with you in my minivan! I love "never let the truth get in the way of the story." If you ever come through Denton, Tx, I'd love to host a house concert for you.

It was great seeing you and Anna again at Clint & Katie's. Thanks again for sharing your music with us. After hearing more about your mom I was thinking of three songs that really touched me that may be of comfort. "One Moment More" by Mindy Smith, "A Better Place" by Glen Campbell and "You Can Close Your Eyes" by James Taylor.

We're thinking of you.

So sorry to hear about your Mom. I lost my mom last year and 2 years ago I lost my step-daughter to ovarian cancer. My prayers are with you. We met at
30A at Hibiscus in 2010 then we saw you last year at LaBotana. I hope to see you this summer at SnowBird Lodge. Looks like an awesome place.

Thank you for your awesome music.

Louise, We loved the performance at Snowbird. We listened to "Home", all the way home over the Cherohala Parkway, back to Chattanooga. Can't wait to see you at the Chattanooga Market. I see you were at Telluride last year - any chance you're going again this year?

Hi Louise,

I met you at NERFA and enjoyed your set at the Formal Showcase. I bought your album immediately and have been enjoying it ever since. You might remember that I gave you one of my own albums in the dining room on the last day and I hope you might have had a chance to listen to it on the way home. Anyway, I think you are a huge talent and love your work so consider me a big fan! Best of luck for 2012 and i hope yo see you again sometime.

Discovered you through looking into The Black Cat's performance roster ( they are in Irvington, NY).

I have a new online directory of women experts, artists, authors, entrepreneurs, speakers, etc. and I'd love to tell my network about you via an interview, for our weekly enewsletter, SuccessPaths. If that sounds good to you (my editor Eve Gumpel can do this over the phone or via email) let me know.

Wishing you success - love 'Leave Your Gun'!

I saw and heard you at the Bluebird Cafe about a week or so ago. We were visiting my daughter,who lives in Franklin.We are a very music oriented family,and as a special treat,my daughter,son-in-law,and grandson suggested a night at the Bluebird. It was wonderful...a very pleasant experience.I have been a music fan for well over 50 years,and I must say...your songs were amazing. We all agreed that your music touched us in many ways.....the imagery painted in your songs was so simple,yet so real....the songs and music made the listener feel as though we were right there in the story. It was a wonderful night and a wonderful performance. Thank you. As an afterthought,I must tell you....I am 60 years old and this is the first fan letter I have ever written. Thank you again for helping to make that night one that will be in my memory for a long time.


July 31, 2011

You were by far my fav artist at the Emerging Artists' Showcase at Falcon Ridge this year. Great songs and a beautiful voice.
Keep up the good work! Can't wait to see you at Club Passim in November!

Do you have a CD with "Lay It Down" on it ?

John Ramsey

June 25, 2011

After listening to you live and all 3 of your albums, I can't help but wonder if your voice would be better through some sort of filtering device - have you ever tried singing through a mustache?

May 19, 2011

Hi Lousie,
I`m the man that in Nashville ask you a sing for Lourdes.
Quite impressed, not only for your marvelous voice and songs but especially for your presence on stage. The sincerity and compromise you transmit. A pity only three songs.

Julie Delgado

Hey Louise, I'm a writer in town too. Would love to co-write sometime.

Hey Louise,

We loved you so much at the Richardson Wildflower Festival in Texas on May 15th. Your voice, I mean your voice was so clean and pure that we missed part of your show just to make sure that we got your CD "Home" We just know we are gonna see you on the awards show as the "New up and coming Singing/Songwriter" Tou WILL go far, Louise, and I feel Proud just to have heard you 'way back when'

May 10, 2010

Hi Louise,

I am sitting here listening to your "Home" CD. I saw you at the "Bluebird Cafe" in April '10 with my brothers and Dad. You were amazing!! Your live performance with just your guitar was mesmerizing!! I could not wait for the other 3 to finish so I could hear your voice again. Thanks for a wonderful memory. I hope to see/hear you play again!

I listened to "Home" and "God lives in Arkansas." I like what I hear. Byron House produced my friends, The Waybacks, last album "Loaded." My friend, John Stewart, who died in 2008, and Nanci Griffith were great friends. Nanci recorded John's "The Ghost inside of Me" and "Armstrong" and sang with John on his song "Sweet Dreams Will Come."


Kathy Ballar

March 6, 2010

I saw you at the 30-A Singer/Songwriter Festival-Rosemary Town Hall venue. My husband and I loved your music and your Taylor, but didn't pick your "Home" C.D. until today. We love it and the folk-Americana sound. Hope to see you next year at the 30-A Singer/Songwriter Festival.

Hey Louise -

Met you last night at Ron and Lilly's - great time, great show. Why don't you have a facebook page? You'd get a bunch of fans!



January 23, 2010

I have visited your website so many times but only just noticed you have a guestbook!

I bought your album at an I think what is called a writer's round at a hotel in downtown Nashville.
My husband got your CD for me that night and put it on my iPod.
I listen to it over and over and over....
I put it on my docking station on my desk at work and let everyone enjoy it too.
I have got to download your other albums tonight so I can get more.
Your voice is amazing and your lyrics are very touching and identifiable.
So glad I ended up at that hotel bar that night...

Please keep me advised about "The Battle of Franklin" song that you did at last nights house concert. I have rechecked my information and my great grandfather, T.M. Jennings, was in that battle as part of the 10th Mississippi Infantry Division. We was a memeber of Company K, (Beauregards Relief) from Tippah County, Mississippi. After the defeat at Nashville his unit wintered in Merdian, MS before going to the Carolinas where he was mustered out at the end of the war. He lived in Cotton Plant Mississippi and die at the age of 74. Sorry if this is TMI. Really enjoyed your whole show.

Hi, I saw the finalists' concert at Kerrville this year and only bought one cd there all week. Yours. Wish it had more than 5 songs. Please come to Denver to play at Swallow Hill so I can get your new cd. Thanks, Kim


October 7, 2009

Your sister in law (Amy) introduced me to your music along with another artist, whos music I truely love, and I have enjoyed listening to some of your songs. Amy almost drives me nuts with it as anytime we go anywhere the first thing she does is pop in your latest CD (Home) and listens to about 3 of the songs, ( I admit I like them as well just dont tell her LOL) Thank you for sharing your music, which by the sound of it you pour your soul into , with the rest of us.

Thank you. and keep on singing!

Hi Louise,

A lazy Sunday here and I have been sampling your web site music. I really like your song, "Complicated" and will listen to the others later. I will be in Oak Ridge this coming Friday the 21st to hear the Manhattan Blues Project at "Moondollars" in Jackson Square where all the talented Westcott's hangout. If you and Mark have nothing on your calendar and would like to join me there, I'm sure you could sit in and do a few songs.

Catch up with you and Mark later.
