Every underdog gets his day...
In a small working class Boston borough, the most common reaction to Layto’s musical ambition would be, “What the fuck is this kid doing?” However, doubt, struggle, and adversity only fueled the artist/pianist/vocalist/producer to push harder. As a result, his handcrafted catchy and confessional style packs percussive punchiness, pop expanse, alternative spirit, and a touch of hip-hop bravado. A quiet four-year grind yielded millions of streams, critical buzz, rotation on Alt Nation, and a growing fan base following the arrival of his 2018 independent EP, The Low Boy.
“It’s an origin story,” explains Layto. “It’s everything I went through—being subjugated by people around me, subverted by a girl, and coming from nothing, not just financially, but entirely outside of the scene. I always felt like an outsider. On top of that, I was love sick and discarded. The EP tells how I became Layto.” With more music on the way and touring planned, Layto is an underdog worth rooting for.
