Louis the Child is a Winnetka-based DJ and production duo consisting of Robby Hauldren and Frederic Kennett. They are best known for their singles “Better Not”, “It’s Strange”, “Weekend”, and “Fire”.
Louis the Child started playing at small venues through 2013 and 2014. In 2015, the band rose in popularity with the release of their single “It’s Strange”. Freddy Kennet was 17 at the time and still in high school. Robby Hauldren was beginning his freshman year at the University of Southern California. The single garnered praise from artists such as Taylor Swift, who added “It’s Strange” as one of her “Songs that Will Make Life Awesome” and was featured on the FIFA 16 soundtrack. “It’s Strange” was later featured in a commercial for the 2019 Nissan Kicks. They later opened for artists such as Madeon and The Chainsmokers. The duo embarked on their own tour on October 17, 2015, starting in Chicago. In 2017, the duo headlined a 32 show tour with support from Joey Purp, Lauv, Louis Futon, Prince Fox, Ashe, Party Pupils, Point Point, and Win & Woo, during which they made various contributions including playing a sold-out Thanksgiving show at the Aragon Ballroom.
