“Jamaica” is the catchy new radio hit by Capetonian singer/songwriter Louis van Lill. Produced at Van Coke Studios in Cape Town, this debut single by Van Lill has an exciting trajectory ahead of it.

This upbeat, sunny love song releases to radio and streaming mid-February 2021.

Louis van Lill explains the inspiration:

“I wanted to write something for everybody, a lekker tune about love, life, and the silly good times. Pickup lines came up and one that stuck to my head was: are you from Jamaica? Cause you maica me crazy. My nephew told this one at a braai and it stuck. Time passed, I never forgot the idea, and I wound up writing this song for my wife...Cause she maica me crazy. Always trying to make her laugh! This is also my first single that the brilliant Richard Onraet (Francois van Coke’s Die Gevaar) produced for me and that I wrote. Richard is a great guy, really professional and for sure knows what he is doing.”


Louis has been a singer-songwriter for many years but Jamaica is 1st official radio release:

“My dad taught me to play guitar when I was a kid. He showed me the basics and the bug bit. The song that set me on my musical path was House of the Rising Sun by The Animals.”


Louis lives in the picturesque Velddrif on the West Coast. He works in the online + IT space and is married with two children. 

What does the future hold in store for him?

“If I can choose to work with an artist and make music one day I'd say Francois van Coke. I've always been a fan. I've got plenty more singles in the pipeline. I've always wanted to make music and perform as an artist. I just love doing it. It feels like home”
