For Layne Putnam, music has always been an autobiographical journey, one influenced as much by her personal experiences as outside forces.
Putnam made a name for herself as an undiscovered talent tapped from her hometown in the Black Hills of South Dakota. Those formative years set the building blocks for the beginning of the LAYNE style, which was heavily influenced by the geographic imprint of her rural upbringing. From the get-go, Putnam has absorbed inspiration from her immediate surroundings and grew up with a penchant for arts, culture, and architecture foreign to many youth her age.
“Music has always been the constant in my life,” says Layne Putnam. “It’s always been there for me, and it always will be. It’s always been my purpose and reason and the one thing that no one could ever take away from me. Growing up until now, it’s been my power, my identity, and my best friend.” As with any genuine artist, age begets change, and for Putnam that meant a life transforming relocation to her new and current home in LA. There Putnam would meet drummer Alexander Rosca, a transplant session player from Portland. They would bond over similar tastes in music, style, and similarities in the places they once called home. It’s in the City of Angels where these messengers of music found and perfected their crafty and heartfelt take of indie pop powered by moody, emotion-laden rock.
