Layah Jane

Layah Jane
Speaking courageous and tender to the hungry hearts of poets, activists, and lovers alike, Folk/Soul songstress Layah Jane is the shy one with head-turning presence; the tall one with the bright blue eyes, tangled blonde curls, and dancing hips. Layah’s music is embodied, raw, and disarming.
With a clever poetic and political conscience from teenage years rocking to Ani Difranco, tender vocal phrasing from pressing walkman earphones spouting Sarah McLachlan into her middle-school ears, and an instinctive understanding of harmony and rhythm from in utero exposure to her parents’ Joni Mitchell, Rickie Lee Jones, Sade, and Kate Bush records, Layah Jane has studied the grand dames of her musical lineage, and has discovered and developed her own spirited voice.
Layah began crafting songs in her early teens, and has bedazzled, bemused, and bewitched listeners ever since.  Don’t be distracted by the CBC Galaxie Rising Star Award, the Ontario Independent Music Awards for Best Folk and Best Female Artist, the Toronto Independent Music Award for Best Jazz, or the songwriting award for Best Political Song at the Ontario Council of Folk Festival’s conference.  Resonance bowls over award plaques, and melody sticks stronger than boastful bios or promises from strangers: You won’t be disappointed.  You’ll hum like a bee with honey.
With 4 recordings released in 4 years on the independent Grace Note Records(Brightness & Bravery in 2008, Patience EP in 2007, and Grievance & Gratitude and Grievance & Gratitude Remixes in 2005), Layah’s prolific and passionate songwriting is carving her the kind of music career that is fruitful and long-haul steady.  Rumour has it that there’s another record on the way.  Psst…Pass it on.

“Then the King will say to those on His right, ‘Come, you who are blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me something to drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in; naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me.’ Then the righteous will answer Him, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry, and feed You, or thirsty, and give You something to drink? And when did we see You a stranger, and invite You in, or naked, and clothe You? When did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ The King will answer and say to them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.’ ”  Matthew 25:34-40
