Rising singer-songwriter LOUIS COUPE has unveiled his stunning new single “Where Did The Time Go?”.
Pinning together dazzling piano lines with dramaturgic choruses, “Where Did The Time Go?” is as scintillating as it is stirring: heart-wrenching enough to catch a lump in your throat, but shaded with all the optimism of a young person with the world at their feet.
A song that speaks to the classic romanticism of the past as easily as it does the rose-tinted blossoming of the future, Louis explains:
“I’ve always looked up to my grandparents and thought they had the best love story ever. They’ve been together so long and my Grandad still loves my Grandma no matter what — just as much as he did when they met — and I thought that was so inspiring for someone my age.
I guess I realised that I wanted to live a love story like that too. I wrote the song imagining his perspective and all the memories he’s collected over the years with my Grandma, in turn imagining all the memories I hope to collect in my life.”
With climactic key work and crystal-clear vocals, the track follows earlier release “Hannah’s Got A Way” as a raw and rousing testament to Louis’ skill as both singer-songwriter and pianist.
From his beginnings as an outcast in music class, Louis Coupe has forged his own innovative path through a sheer passion for music. Fashioning together a diverse yet classic sound, the songwriter channels the timeless songbooks of the 1970s into his introspective piano-led pieces.
After receiving a surprise ticket to see Elton John at the age of 12, a young Louis became instantly obsessed with the pioneering musical greats — The Beatles, The Stones and ELO. Spending hours searching for tutorial videos online, Louis set about teaching himself any instrument he could find.
Over the next decade Louis notched-up over a thousand live shows under his belt and honed his craft the old-fashioned way, performing anywhere that would take him — from the smallest of clubs and pubs to friends’ front rooms, firework displays, cruise ships, canal boats, ice rinks, so many empty nightclubs, golf clubs, shopping centres, cricket clubs, Wolves football stadium at halftime, and many more. More recent highlights include performances at BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend in 2020 and the iconic Royal Albert Hall.
Now, Louis is set to play his first ever headline show — a moment he has waited his “whole life” for. Bringing his spellbinding set of raw and real songs to London’s Servant Jazz Quarters this September, tickets are available here.
