Happy Sunday, everyone! Today, the talented local folk singer-songwriter Laila joins us on Semple Street with her acoustic guitar and a few new tunes, including a preview to an unreleased track.
Laila’s been singing since early childhood, and it shows in her talent for melodies and songwriting. She’s been releasing songs on her Soundcloud for the past year, and she’s set to drop a new EP sometime in the coming months. Her musical and lyrical influences include the indie folk band Daughter and the indie rock band The Front Bottoms.
She describes her songwriting as storytelling. Beyond telling her own personal story, she strives to tell the stories of multiple friends and acquaintances put into one song. She often explores the relatable subject matter of failed romance and lost love.
Be sure to check out her Soundcloud for the latest releases, and stay tuned to Semple Sessions for a new episode this Wednesday! Thanks again for tuning in, much love to yinz.
