Like Tink or DeJ Loaf, Toronto singer/rapper Layla Hendryx sings songs that are dulcet in tone but but tough when it's time to really talk. Her latest release, Out Of Time, is comprised of 11 new tracks that are at once delicate and emboldened: lots of toothy boasts—like when she sings about her burgeoning career on "U Kno Dat," I've got no time to play, I've been working so hard lately—floating over airy beats. The project features a number of fresh talents (Huey, Waves, Lord Horus, Brall Beats) and was engineered and recorded by Pro Logic and Pro Logic Studios in Toronto.
"Each song represents a different view on a situation I've witnessed or been though," Hendryx explained in an email to The FADER. "I dug deeper to try and talk about a lot of things in my life, such as, family friends, relationships, etc."
