Lou Draws


The alter ego of Clarence Gaines, Lou Draws blends his love of classic R&B and modern sounds to create music that resonates across generations & cultures. Pulling inspiration from the ’70s – ’90s soul, funk & R&B, Lou curates an undeniable vibe bound to have the listener’s feet tapping, head nodding and pressing repeat.

Unfulfilled and frustrated with the state of modern music in 2010, Clarence created the alter ego, Lou Draws with the album ‘Juicealicious: An Old School Love Affair’ a “throwback” album based on the New Jack Swing sound from the late ’80s and early ’90s.

Lou’s latest release ‘Lou’s Grooves: Ventura Boulevard to Rodeo Road’ pays homage to the timeless sounds of The Gap Band, Cameo, The Time and Lakeside.
