Louis Bluehart on the Release of His Latest Music

December 28, 2021

NEW YORK – Nicosia-born singer-songwriter, producer, and actor Louis Panayiotou, aka Louis Bluehart, spoke with The National Herald about the release of his latest music, including three singles in the last six months, Dirty Looks, Poisonous Love, and In the Sin, now available on YouTube.

When asked how long the process took from idea to realization for his latest single, titled In the Sin, Panayiotou told TNH: “Actually this idea came last summer in 2020, but I really started working on it about 6-7months ago.”

He continued, “I started writing these songs about two years ago. I have 15 songs already that I wrote within the last three and a half years. The lyrics of some of the songs are by me and some others by Pavlos Christou aka Pavlos C. Hunt.”

“In the past, I was trying to finish the demos of my songs with other producers in studio,” Panayiotou said. “However, I wanted to also learn how to mix and master my own tracks.”

“During the pandemic, I invested time and money on equipment to create my own small home studio,” he told TNH. “For that whole year, I recorded all my songs again and started developing the instrumental tracks from scratch. I was watching tutorials and taking online classes from producers so I could become better mixing my own music.”

“The three songs that are already out, are music and production by me and lyrics by Pavlos Christou aka Pavlos C. Hunt. All of my songs are available on all platforms and were featured in three main Spotify Playlists,” Panayiotou said.

When asked what he is working on next, he told TNH: “At present, I am working on my upcoming singles that will be released within the next couple of months. You can also see me performing live in NYC at the Duplex Cabaret Theatre in my brand new show Pop Land featuring my original music and other great pop hits, as well as impersonations. With me on stage are the dancers Giorgia Vitali and Francesco La Macchia. My next show at the Duplex [61 Christopher Street in Manhattan] will be on Saturday, January 22.”

Panayiotou was born and raised in Nicosia, Cyprus. In September 2017, he moved to New York and two months later made his solo debut in A Taste of Him at the showcase bar The Dog House in Manhattan. The 90-minute show included Panayiotou’s original songs performed for a full house. That same month, he joined the soloists and chorus of the Pancyprian Choir of New York, part of the Pancyprian Association of America Cultural Division.

Since then, he has been performing as a soloist singer/actor with Pancyprian in concerts including Mitsias and Mpasis Live in October 2017 at the Bergen County Academies Auditorium in Hackensack, NJ and the Queens Theater in the Park, a Musical Tribute to the Cypriot composer Marios Tokas, the Polytexneio Theatrical Concert (November 2017), and Ton Athanaton (March 2018) a theatrical performance presented at the Petros G. Patrides Cultural Center in Astoria, NY. Most recently, he impressed the audience at the Pancyprian Choir’s annual Christmas Kalanta performance at St. Catherine and St. George Church in Astoria on December 18.
