In Conversation with Louis VI

We spent time getting to know musician, presenter and zoologist Louis VI recently, as he kindly fit us in to his jam-packed schedule to talk all things Nature.

Louis VI is not only a rising star in the music world, he is the first artist to have Nature herself featured as a stand-alone artist on his latest release called Orange Skies. In this interview, he talks us through where his passion sparked to integrate his love of the natural world into his career, the push he needed to navigate this, his wide-range of inspirations and the places, experiences and people most special to him.

Shortly after this interview, Louis VI went on to speak at the UN in NYC and is set to release a documentary, host Spring Watch in the UK and, of course, inspire the world with new music.

We loved speaking with Louis and we’re so proud to have him as a ReWild Yourself Champion. We hope you enjoy it too!

Louis’s Connection to Nature

We’re always keen to explore people’s relationship with Nature, as everyone’s is unique. We thoroughly enjoyed the way Louis talked so poetically about the animal he feels such a close affinity with – the Octopus. Taking from his own professional business, he’s grown to admire their tenacity, versatility and intelligence. We also explore in this chapter a location and experience in which he felt the most close to Nature, a memory he cherishes.
