Add gritty vocals, true life lyricism, catchy riffs, and a solid rhythm section and you get Layden and the Lion. Based out of South Louisiana and Florida, sure to impress the listening audience both musically and visually. Heavily influenced by the sounds of Lucero, Against me!, Brian Fallon and Chuck Ragan, as well as many other bands/genres blended together to create his sound. Releasing the first 6 song EP "Lost And Lonely With Everything" in 2016 which displays a passion for writing songs that everyone can relate too, whether it be an uptempo feel good song, to a mid tempo lyrically dark song, to a laid back acoustic song about the struggles of day to day life to recording a 10 song LP with Aaron Gillespie of Underoath and The Almost to come out in 2017. He is not trying to reinvent the wheel..... just keeping the wheel rolling.
