A local teenager is releasing her debut album on her 16th birthday.

Musician, singer, songwriter Layla John from Porthcawl, is releasing her debut album ‘OneFiveEight’ on April 3.

Influenced by bands such as Blink 182, Sublime and No Doubt, she writes her own songs, sings, plays guitar and bass on all the tracks and has also recorded and mixed all the tracks herself on her home computer.

Her Ska punk sound has already received attention from the local music scene.

Layla said: “My debut EP CD ‘Caught Short’ is currently on sale in Spillers Records in Cardiff and a song from my debut album ‘S.M.N.E.’ has also been played on Wolfman Radio.

“I am playing my first ever live solo gig at the Ancient Briton on the April 3.”

Layla’s music is available to listen to, download, stream or buy on Spotify, Apple Music and Google Play.
