Layah Jane / Bio

Speaking courageous and tender to the hungry hearts of poets, activists, and lovers alike, Canadian Folk/Soul songstress Layah Jane is a burst of joy onstage - a velvet-voiced tunesmith of tender, clever, conscientious Canadiana that seeps into the soul. Layah is the recipient of two Ontario Independent Music Awards (Best Female Artist 2008, and Best Folk 2007), a Toronto Independent Music Award (Best Jazz 2006), and a CBC Galaxie Rising Star Award (2005). Backed by the sensitive and soulful accompaniment of band-mate and lead guitarist Oliver Johnson, Layah has played shows and festivals across North America, including The Rochester International Jazz Fest, Ottawa Folk Fest, New Music West, Canadian Music Week, and The Toronto City Roots Festival, and is currently touring her 2011 release, "Honey". Recommended if you'd like to hear Sade go Alt-Country, Joni Mitchell spout Reggae, and Phoebe Snow sing you a lullabye, this is music that speaks courageous and tender to the hungry hearts of poets, activists, and lovers alike.
