For those of you who did not know, Louise signed her first record deal with the independent label, Silver Tulip Music when she was 15 years old. She released her debut single at seventeen entitled ‘It Don’t Matter’. It was an instant hit and reached number 3 on the 5FM Top 40. She released her first album ‘Mirrors and Windows’ in 1998 which delivered another top 10 hit ‘Fallen for you’. After school Louise continued with her music as well as attending Cape Town University and received an Honours degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics.
Since then she’s released ‘Looking around’ (in 2002), ‘Silent Scream’ (in 2005), ‘Saved by the Moonlight’ (in 2007) and ‘Look to the Edge’ (2010). Louise has been nominated for multiple South African Music Awards (SAMA’s) over the years and has become one of South Africa’s best known female artists.
