Musician and songwriter Nathi Louw now acclaimed by his stage name, Automatic
is a Soweto born multi-talented artist who is paving the way for himself within the
music industry of South Africa. Born and raised in Pimville, Soweto. The then young
and still amateur singer was privileged at not only meeting, but closely being
mentored by well-known lead vocalist and guitarist for the group Harare, Masiko
“Funky” Mohape. The extraordinary and fulfilling life experience later led to Nathi
gathering three of his close friends; who at the time had no expertise on playing
any musical instruments. Together, they formed a band called Reeburth.
Reeburth was a predominantly rock band with a sound that seemed unusual for
Black Soweto born individuals. The band initiated a way to engage the particular
music with the township community; and by doing this they gained fans and
popularity which soon led to Reeburth touring across the country and performing
at some of SA’s leading festivals such as, Oppikoppi, RAMFest and Synergy Live.
As time went by career paths changed for each band member which then led to the
group heading in different directions to pursue their own personal dreams and
It was at this stage that Nathi’s passion for music only grew considerably above all
his many other talents, which include: art, photography, fashion design, acting,
tattooing, specializing and scriptwriting. It is then that the birth of the solo
recording artist emerged under the name: Automatic. The musician has worked
vigorously on his first album in which he had already released an afro pop and R&B
ballad titled “SkimSaam”. Now, he offers the latest single from the
{OUSIX Project} album titled “LOST”.
