Louie Gonnie

Louie Gonnie is Dine from the Navajo Nation in New Mexico. Louie admired his father and uncles and wanted to be like them so he began to sing in the Native American Church. He is also a well rounded artist, expressing himself in music, art and writing.

Louie started singing for family and friends. Eventually, people were recording his music and he realized that he could have a career as a recording artist. His albums started out as Peyote songs of the Native American Church. Since then he has created a more contemporary style.

Louie Gonnie is interested in sharing his music with Native and non-Native listeners. His record deal with Canyon Records allows him to share his music with a more diverse audience. Louie has been singing since he was a child but only recently has started recording with Canyon Records. Check out his albums from Canyon Records at www.canyonrecords.com.
