I was not born with a natural gift for music, nor have I honed one. I was born with a love for music and an ear for something special. I love the shared experience that music provides and feel it is the tie that binds us all in some way. To hear something amazing for the first time is an experience that is never the same no matter how oft repeated. As a lover of words, of writing, of listening, of people, of shared experience; Layman’s Records is born out of a desire to marry all of these, in an effort to appreciate the beauty in the art of music and the power it holds over all of us. My sincere thanks to the individuals and artists that share themselves with us. As water is to the body, music is to the soul.
