In The Spotlight

LOU’ANA – “Eye To Eye”

Hailing from New Zealand, this Auckland-based singer and songwriter has been a part of the lively local music scene for 6 years. She’s performed all over the country as part of funk group Hipstamatics and Two Many Chiefs and supported jazz act Andrew Faleatua and electro outfit Sola Rosa. With a vivid fusion of sweet soul and gritty blues, she’s headlining the Waiheke Jazz Festival later this month.

Adding a haunting atmosphere to her debut solo single, this song combines jazz, pop and a touch of South-American flair into a spell-binding brew of auditory witchcraft. With enchanting keys, an enthralling rhythm and hypnotic handclaps conjuring the mythical melody, it’s her Amy Winehouse-touched vocals filled with esoteric grit and mesmeric magic, that will put you under her spell.
