Artist Spotlight: Louis the Child
Posted on: July 11, 2017
“In the fall of 2015, Robby Hauldren and Freddy Kennett, who make music as Louis the Child, were on tour in support of The Chainsmokers. One day in the vicinity of Illinois, Kennett joined the Chainsmokers’ Andrew Taggart to fiddle with some music on the tour bus; the two men came up with a drop and then continued on with their lives. That drop later appeared in the Chainsmokers’ “Closer,” which spent all of September, October, and most of November at No. 1 on the Hot 100.” – Billboard
Dynamic duo Robby Hauldren and Freddy Kennett began their musical journey in their hometown of Chicago in 2013. Drawing inspiration from the likes of Madeon, Porter Robinson, Flume and more, Louis the Child coupled the rising future style with their own signature blend of wavey synths and immaculate arrangements to become one of the hottest rising names in dance music all before they’ve even turned 21. Garnering praise from the likes of Taylor Swift, The Chainsmokers, Madeon and more, as well as performing at major festivals such as Coachella, Lollapalooza, Electric Forest and more, this young duo is showing the world why they are the next name in dance music with their intricate style and sound.
