Thank you to the supporters of the Gofundme for home studio equipment!

The small home studio equipment set has finally arrived at my home from the UK thanks to all of those people who supported my Gofundme campaign last month! I am excited to put this together and learn how to use the software. Love, music and gratitude, Layla
PS...the doggies were excited too, haha ;)

Highway of Tears and Sweet Angel covered by young guitarists!

I always find it so cool when I find a video on YouTube of someone who has enjoyed the music from one of the albums so much that they have decided to learn and cover it.
Here is a very cool video from a young man in Iran who learnt the song intro/solo for "Highway of Tears" (from the album 'Breaking Free') and I think he does an incredible job, especially for his young age of 16! Check it out. 

 

And also take a moment to check out this other great young guitarist covering "Sweet Angel" (also from the album 'Breaking Free')!!

Heartbreaking news for the festival in the UK

So sad to hear the news that the Great British Rhythm and Blues festival who already had to cancel last year in 2020, is forced to cancel the festival (which was set for August of 2021) again this year...There is so much more I want to say on this subject, but for now I just send love and hope to those musicians, promoters, agents, and music fans, who are affected....Let's see what the future holds...

New music video (Rainbow Pacmen and Unicorns)

Thrilled to announce the release of a new music video in collaboration with creative director and editor Burak Babayigit, thanks to my fans on Patreon who continue to support my creative endeavours and make projects like this one possible. I always wanted to make a video for this song when the album was first released, so it was a dream come true to work on and create this video with Burak thanks to his perfect vision of a psychedelic love story after I described the story of the lyrics.

Enjoy and feel free to share with friends!
