Modern life moves fast. It's easy to stumble through your days, suppress your desires, swallow down your dreams. To hear Layla Zoe sing is to experience an emotional awakening. "I want people to get in touch with the feelings they bury deep inside their hearts," explains the Canadian singer-songwriter. "I rip people's hearts out, then put them back in..."
After nine acclaimed albums and too many tear-it-up live shows to count, 'Breaking Free' is the release that confirms Layla's status as the pack-leader and standout voicebox of Canadian blues. More than that, this tenth album is set to skyrocket her upward trajectory on the international scene, and build on the momentum of 2013's 'The Lily.'
Long-time fans will be itching to hear Layla's voice on Breaking Free, but for this evolving artist, it's all about the songs. Recorded at Megaphon Tonstudio in Germany, 'Breaking Free' unveils ten originals – plus a stellar cover of the Rolling Stones' "Wild Horses" – that underline the writing chemistry between Layla and guitarist Jan Laacks.
"I'm very proud of this album," says Layla. "The songs get stuck in your head, which is usually the sign of a good one. Jan is so talented and really knows me after the last three years on tour."
