Since arriving in Hobart in 2014 & hanging up her sailing boots, Laini has been able to concentrate on recording the songs she wrote then & has continued to write, finding a wonderful partnership with Multi-Instrumentalist & Producer Mike Raine.
Her first eponymous studio album, co-written with fellow Tasmanian Jimmy Reece, was released in 2017. Drawing upon a range of influences & genres, including pop, electronic, dance, world, & jazz, it created an overall experimental world of dark, cinematic pop.
For her 2nd studio album “Take a breath” (May 2019) Laini ventured out on her own as the sole writer. Again the influences & production styles are varied, as are the themes. “It is important to me that when I write & record a song, I allow it to take on a life of it's own, not confined by genre or style, or what I've done before – this gives me freedom to experiment with lyrics, melody & production ideas & allows each song to breathe in it's own right”
