Hey Layla! Welcome to BuzzMusic! Can you introduce yourself as an artist to our readers?

'Hey! I’m Layla, I’m 18 years old and I’m a new pop artist in the music industry.

We loved how refreshing "Top of The Morning" made us feel! Can you explain the integral message of the song?

‘Top of the morning’ is about being happy, having no worries and living in the moment with good people around you and just having the best time really.  I wanted to make music that I loved to listen to and I know my friends would love

What do you hope your listeners take away from your music?

So the idea behind that is summer vibes, dance music and I think that’s what makes up ‘top of the morning’. I want my listeners to feel uplifted and happy. I mean I do have songs that aren’t as upbeat as the majority of them but my main focus as an artist is to make people feel good. 

While curating “Top of The Morning”, did you come across any creative blocks? If you ever come across creative blocks with creating your sound, how do you typically surpass them?

So this was my first time creating music and my manager Amelia McCloskey set me up with a multi-platinum producer and songwriter Darren Martyn who's worked with Tinie Tempah, M.O, Tom Zanetti etc. It was a great experience and I’ve learnt a lot from him and the way he works. It has really inspired me. I definitely had moments where I just didn’t know what to write or what to come up with. I always went back to what I wanted the outcome of the song to be like and just brainstorm things in my head. I take a lot of inspiration from other artists and their work so listening to different music and styles really opens up my mind to how I’d like my sound to be. 

What's next for you Layla?

Back in February I wrote a whole EP of 6 tracks in about 5 days, so I’ve got so much music that I can’t wait to release. I’ve begun working with a couple of incredible DJs such as Ministry Of Sound DJ Jayli which is really exciting. I've just released Top Of The Morning which we're now up to 70k views on Youtube and over 10k views on Spotify which is amazing for my first release! Also got played on BBC introducing and DJ Sigma has been supporting the single saying they really liked it too. In September I will be touring schools around the south of England and Wales- getting myself out there and sharing my music to young people.
