I love this photograph. I didn’t take it. It was taken by Toronto based photographer and musician Emma-Lee.
The first time (and every time since) I saw Layah and Oliver play, the connection they made together on stage was captivating. The perfect blend of their vocal harmonies, guitar melodies and rhythms, Layah’s voice…
But, what was truly mesmerizing was watching was how they interacted with one another visually and Energetically.
This image captures an authentic nuance of that unique dynamic.
Five years later they are even more seasoned. They are fine tuned award winning professionals. Their sophistication and soul is complimented by a playfulness that makes me smile out loud just writing about it…
You need to to see them play. You need to hear their music. It’s divine.
I am pleased to announce that they will be playing here in Riverside, Rhode Island on Thursday, November 17 beginning at 6:00PM at Providence Coffee Roasters as a part of their “After Hours” events (click my Events tab to read the details).
Come by for a great cup of organic fair trade coffee, fabulous music and art with a portion of the proceeds being donated to the Waddington Elementary Arts and Culture Fund.
By the way…I am honored to reveal that Oli and Layah are family
