Louis The Child is a Chicago-bred production duo comprised of Robby Hauldren and Freddy Kennett. After landing three singles on the Hot Dance/Electronic songs chart in 2017, they delivered a series of exciting releases in 2018, including collaborations with artists like Joey Purp and Quinn XCII, as well as “Better Not” ft. Wafia — a #1 hit on the US iTunes Electronic charts, featured on their EP Kids at Play. Also in 2018, Louis The Child scored the #58 spot on the first-ever Billboard Dance 100 artist rankings, then moved up to the #46 spot on the 2019 list.
When facing the daily maelstrom of concerns, complaints, and calamities in the news, in conversation, and in social media posts, a smile signals real rebellion. Eschewing self-centered woe and melancholy-for-the-sake-of-melancholy, happiness becomes the brashest, boldest, and ballsiest move—and the sought-after answer. Recognizing this truth, two-time GRAMMY®Award-nominated singer, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and producer K.Flay sticks to a powerful, passionate, and positive mission statement on her third full-length album, SOLUTIONS[Night Street/Interscope Records].
Catalyzed by a three-year whirlwind of world touring and prolific output, she translates the simple pleasures into ten genre-blurring bangers…
“When I got home from tour, I was in a dark place,” she admits. “Eventually, I made a decision to focus on the things that actually make me happy: walking around my neighborhood, drawing in notebooks with markers, talking to my mom on the phone. I thought, ‘What did I do as a kid to be happy?’As a child, you don’t have access to alcohol, drugs, sex, caffeine. I looked back, when I had fun just by making music. I remembered the first time I wrote a song, burned a CD, and played it in my car. It’s the closest thing I’ve ever had to a religious experience. I reconnected with that spirit and stopped taking shit so seriously.”
She certainly earned the right to do so…
As the culmination of a diligent decade-long grind marked by a series of independent EPs and shows, the songstress carved up her own lane in the mainstream with major label debut Every Where Is Some Where. It garnered two nods at the 2018 GRAMMY®Awards in the categories of “Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical” and “Best Rock Song” for “Blood in the Cut.” The latter generated 30 million-plus Spotify streams as “High Enough” surpassed the 20-million mark and “Giver” clocked 12 million and counting. In addition to praise from Billboard, Nylon, The Fader, and more, she landed syncs and soundtrack placements for TombRaider, xXx: Return of Xander Cage, NBA 2K, Fifa, This is the End, and more. Not to mention, everyone from legendary Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave guitarist Tom Morello and Linkin Park co-frontman Mike Shinoda to FIDLAR sought her out for collaborations. She also canvased the globe supporting Imagine Dragons.
In the end, K.Flay makes happiness cool again…
“When you listen to this, I hope you walk away feeling like it’s okay to temper a little positivity in your life,” she leaves off. “There’s so much out there we can’t control. As I mature, I’ve been able to realize that. Do what makes you happy. Right now, music makes me really happy.”
