Louise Day is a South African folk/pop singer and songwriter from Cape Town. Extremely talented and personable, Louise is a busy musician, juggling a recording and performance schedule that involves sharing the stage with some of South Africa’s top musicians as well as regular solo gigs.
Louise’ smooth and pure voice, unique blend of pop and folk music, compelling song writing and frequent collaborations with the big names of South African music make her a popular local player. A singer and performer since the age of ten, Louise fully committed to a career in music after spending a year touring the US with Fender, representing its new range of guitars specifically for women. As a brand ambassador for the music instrument company, she helped promote women songwriters and guitarists, and this plum assignment found her playing festivals across the States, alongside names like John Mayer, The Fray, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals and The English Beat. Since her return to South Africa, Louise and her band have recorded two albums – Chasing the Wind and Swallowed by the City. Louise currently performs a repertoire of originals and popular classics.
