“We created this project as a soundtrack to your everyday life regardless if you’re taking a walk in the park or going through a bad breakup, our ultimate desire is to bring happiness to you through our music,” Layomi said about making the new album. “We come from a place where people are inspired to be in the entertainment business and actually have the talent but lack the resources. Tampa isn’t only what we would consider paradise, but a cauldron of untapped talent. The 813 means everything to us.
At a young age we learned that you have to leave the nest to make it happen and bring back the resources similar to Odysseus and the journey of the hero. The trials and tribulations of this journey are the driving forces behind the music of “You,Me & the 813.” We created this project as a soundtrack to your everyday life regardless if you’re taking a walk in the park or going through a bad breakup, our ultimate desire is to bring happiness to you through our music.
Truthfully, this is a great time for women and music and we feel our music is what the world has been missing.”
