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 JP Cooper, it's bold, daring, and completely natural, moving from soul to funk and disco like those house parties that first fired his imagination. Guesting on Big Narstie's superb album cut 'Help', a chance encounter with Acid Jazz founder Eddie Piller at Soho Radio's Central London studio allowed him to find his path.
Debut album 'The Wanderer' was steered by the expert hand of producer Tristan Longworth. Indeed, if 'The Wanderer' sounds fresh then that's because it was. Laville's lyrics have this narrative thrust that digs 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 forever - it's time for 'The Wanderer' to come home.
