THE CHEAP PART OF TOWN
‘The Cheap Part of Town’ is Louis Rive’s first collection of songs. Barroom bards and street philosophers, from the down-and-out and back up again, this collection of songs focuses on the people and places that make up the rich patchwork of life that holds any city together.
Written in Barcelona during the winter of 2017/8, this series of stories will introduce you to the side of life that is often seen but seldom heard.
Recorded in BONOBO Studio, Barcelona 2018 with Esteban Boero, The Cheap Part of Town is available across all platforms and on request as a CD or download card.

THE STATE OF THE NATION
The ‘State of the Nation’ is about the UK. It’s about being Scottish and it’s about living in Europe during a time of uncertainty. It may not be feel-good, but it might make you think, something that’s been fairly absent in the UK of late, in the wake of the great Brexit divide.
