It’s a known fact that all Welshmen (and women) can sing to some extent. Wales is called the “land of song”, so there must be some truth behind the assumption. No one makes this more evident than Welsh-born singer-songwriter Kaysha Louvain. She might be Wynne Evans but Louvain has certainly made her mark as a genre-defying act. Featured on YMX, Entertain South Wales and various online radio stations, Louvain is reaching listeners beyond the UK. The latest addition to her well-received repertoire is the single ‘Nobody Does It Like Me’.
Compared to the likes of Stevie Nicks, Chrissie Hynde and Sheryl Crow, Louvain adopts a unique and quite inspirational sound to her music. Think about it, no one would consider crossing Stevie Nicks or Sheryl Crow when it comes to a showdown. Tapping into the world of female empowerment, her parents’ record collection and a love for country music, Louvain blends elements of folk, indie-rock and retro-pop in her harmonic melodies.
Following the upbeat single ‘Summer Lovers’ (read our review here), ‘Nobody Does It Like Me’ sees (or rather hears) an elegant transition into a soft, soothing soft-rock sound. Taking me back to the sounds of Fleetwood Mac, Louvain’s dulcet vocals merge effortlessly with Jammy Harris’ guitar and Dan Nelson’s bass. Listening to this mellow tune is like finding yourself swept away on a glassy lake of music without any qualms or fears. Yet, while there is a smooth simplicity to the track, it is also kaleidoscopic with a sensual quality lying underneath the toe-tapping instrumentation. This song proves that nobody does it quite like Kaysha Louvain – bad pun, I know, but I had to get it in there.
In addition to enjoying the radio version of ‘Nobody Does It Like Me’, you can also see a live performance of the track. Below is a live video of Louvain singing ‘Nobody Does It Like Me’ at Breakout Festival 2021.
