Corné Louw is not someone who enjoys ordinary music. His debut single and the titular track of upcoming album, DATE NIGHT, not only proves this fact but is also a good indication of what can be expected of this unique artist with his soothing storyteller’s voice.
DATE NIGHT is a fresh modern Country-Pop track that is easy to listen to and invites you to sing and dance along to its catchy tune. The song, written by Corné, Hugo Ludik and Vaughan Gardiner, will appeal to anyone who is in a relationship in this busy day and age. “At the beginning of a relationship, a lot of promises are made.
When life and responsibilities kick in, it is easy to neglect one another,” reveals the talented songwriter and musician about the inspiration behind his first Afrikaans release. “The song is very personal, because my wife and I had a similar experience after our twins were born and we did not have time for the things that we used to do together. But we won’t trade our little miracles for anything in the world.”
The music video for this song will be released on 4 July 2019.
DATE NIGHT is also the title of his debut album, which is scheduled to be released soon and he chose it as the title because it is such a familiar concept.
Corné lives in Langebaan in the Western Cape and has mastered the art of captivating audiences with his versatility and charming stage presence. He comes from a musical family, believes that he was born to perform and still plays guitar with his dad sometimes.
American Country music played a big part in his childhood years, which ignited his love and passion for this genre. Although this self-taught guitar player was part of the Supernovas, het only launched his solo career in 2004, after starting a business with his father.
Since then, he has performed at various festivals like the KKNK and Robertson’s Wacky Wine Festival, venues such as Route 66 and Ocean Basket and functions. He is looking forward to going on tour with the new album and sharing his music with new crowds.
Corné Louw believes, like George Jones, that music should be honest and that artists must remain true to themselves to really have an impact. The modern approach and inspiring interpretation of DATE NIGHT and his unique voice are the perfect companions for an end product that is definitely going to make an impact.
