Nettwerk Music Group is pleased to announce the signing of singer-songwriter Lùisa to its European label roster. The Hamburg-born artist impresses with her smoky voice, signature guitar lines and expressive compositions. The end of May will see the European release of her new album Never Own, on which she combines her folk roots with electronic mysticism, strong melodies with headstrong pop. Dancing between quiet introspection and stormy outbursts, the artistic progress of the 22-year-old can also be read in her vivid lyrics, which are sung in English, French and Italian.

The album was recorded both inside an old light ship in London and in a country house at the shores of the North Sea. It was produced by her band and the young and talented producer Filippo Cimatti.
