Louis York is the musical creation of Claude Kelly and Chuck Harmony, who’ve worked with everyone from Celine Dion and Michael Jackson to Ne-Yo, Rihanna, Whitney Houston, Janet Jackson, and Bruno Mars; their music is not one genre. Or influence. Or thought. It’s an exploration of it all.

When stepping behind the mic for the first time in their careers, the Grammy nominated songwriter and producer threw out every rule the business has told them to follow. It doesn’t matter how long, how many transitions or how many genres. Kelly and Harmony found themselves searching for one thing, and one thing alone - GREAT ART.

Art they’re proud to introduce to the world. Music they believe does their rhythmic predecessors proud. And the two have tapped into their eclectic backgrounds and respective New York and St. Louis upbringings to do just that. Every lyric & vocal you hear is straight from Claude’s heart. Every sound a product of Harmony’s mind. But words simply don’t do the justice a play button can. So enjoy.
