Emerging from North London, Easy is the remarkable introduction to the musical world of singer Laville. Whilst influenced via a creative cornucopia as he moved through his teens, more recently has seen this talented vocalist weave his own path with assistance from an array of friends and mutual musical acquaintances.
His teenage years followed a familiar journey through joy and trauma that saw him singing and DJ-ing locally, before a University place beckoned and briefly curtailed his musical ambitions. Employed in a series of jobs, from Michelin starred restaurants, leading front-of-house to help running various musical venues in London Laville has maintained a relentless work ethic, one that has since led back to his first love – Easy is the proof.
The compositional result of his fertile musical mind, lyrically the track has been simmering on the back burner, whilst being honed with the help of friends such as Jorja Smith producer Charlie J Perry, its soulful tones and analogue instrumentation providing an alluring starting point. Contemporary, but rooted in the classic virtues of music making
Easy highlights the impressive talents of Laville and certainly augurs well as he makes his first foray into the broader musical landscape.
Easy follows a recently made live debut (with full band) and Laville has found the ideal home at the small but perfectly formed Acid Jazz Records, for whom he is the first new male solo artist they have signed since Jamiroquai.
