For a long time music was Laville's biggest secret. His songwriting, and those dreams were always something he kept hidden."I had to live my life first before I could write my music," he insists. "I couldn't write it at the same time because I was too in the moment, I was living a faster life than I am now" He studied, he travelled, and he worked - everywhere from top London venues to Michelin starred restaurants. He began to fill this space with music. Channelling everyone from Donny Hathaway to Stevie Wonder, Jamiroquai to Musiq Soulchild, it's bold, daring, and completely natural, moving from soul to funk to drum and bass and disco like those house parties that first fired his imagination.

A chance encounter with Acid Jazz founder Eddie Piller at Soho Radio's Central London studio allowed him to find his path. His Debut album 'The Wanderer' was steered by the expert hands of producers Tristan Longworth and Charlie Perry. Laville's lyrics have this narrative thrust that dig a little deeper than most. A bold voice that adds something distinctly new to the tapestry of soul, Laville's talent is too strong to remain a secret. 

Between opening up for Grammy winning soul icon John Legend. Laville’s been selling out headline shows and featuring on tracks with The Stone Foundation, Hybrid Minds, Foreign Beggars, Big Narstie and The Brand New Heavies. He also fronts The Ash Walker Experience and Phono 48. 

With a new e.p. Produced by Jazz supremo Ash Walker this year is set to be a triumphant year for Laville.
