Ivory Layne may be young, but her music is that of an old soul. Layne started songwriting at age six, but didn't take serious interest until turning fourteen.
She taught herself music production, working from her bedroom and posting demos online. With her prolific lyrics and distinct musicality, Layne was quickly signed to a publishing deal with LBK Entertainment, writing with top names in Nashville such as Jimmy Robbins, Shane McAnally, and Lori McKenna. Her sharpness in the writer's room landed her two global ad campaigns featuring her second EP's title track, Something's Gonna Happen (2014), and gave her opportunities to collaborate with artists such as Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness (Zombies On Broadway). Between her own work and cowrites, Layne also found time for session singing on various projects such as Needtobreathe's single, "Brother." Her well-rounded skill-sets attracted the attention of superstar, Justin Timberlake, who signed Layne to his artist development company, Villa40, in 2015. Since signing, Layne has been hard at work on her next project, this time, self-produced with the help of her coproduction partner, Grammy-winning mix engineer, Brian Tankersley. Her music has flavors of her influences--Peter Gabriel, Annie Lennox, Coldplay, and Imogen Heap, while also taking on a life of its own, an authenticity unique to Layne.
