<p>Lou Rhodes is an English singer and songwriter from Manchester, now living in Wiltshire. In addition to providing vocals and lyrics for the band Lamb, Rhodes has released three solo albums: Beloved One, Bloom and One Good Thing. Rhodes has collaborated with 808 State, A Guy Called Gerald, Funkstörung, Pale 3, Sugizo, Plump DJs, Sheila Chandra, Eliza Carthy, Art of Noise, and The Cinematic Orchestra on Ma Fleur and the soundtrack to Les Ailes Pourpres.
Rhodes started her own record label, Infinite Bloom, at the beginning of 2006, to issue her debut solo album Beloved One which was shortlisted for the Nationwide Mercury Music Prize the same year. This album explores the folk side of Rhodes's music, which was previously undisplayed while performing in Lamb, although songs such as "Fortress" are reminiscent of her times playing in Lamb. She has been described as following a Nick Drake path as a singer-songwriter.
Rhodes performed at Glastonbury Festival in 2005 and in 2007 on the new stage at "The Park", which had been organized by Emily Eavis. In May 2007, Rhodes had to cancel her UK tour after the sudden death of her sister.
Rhodes' second album Bloom was released through A&G</p>
