Professor Louie is a spoken-word performer/political rapper/social activist who's been putting out underground albums in New York since 1985. Along with percussionist Fast Eddie, Professor Louie has been entertaining and enlightening audiences for decades. Called a genius by Pete Seeger on many occasions, the phenomenon known as Professor Louie grew out of the 1960's radical theater group The Pageant Players and evolved via guerrilla solo performances in the streets and parks of New York City in the early 80's. Eschewing the music industry entirely, Professor Louie has performed at countless rallies, protests, benefits and other gatherings for social justice. He continues to release albums on the completely independent FREE BROOKLYN NOW imprint. For additional information or bookings contact FREE BROOKLYN NOW, 399 14th Street, Brooklyn, New York, 11215.
