Speaking about the track he explains, “Thirty one is about love that you know you are ready for, and it is also about knowing who you are and being ok with you. I think its important to understand yourself and your age and to not let that hold you back from doing what you need to be fulfilled.”
‘Thirty One’ is the title track of his forthcoming debut EP, which will be released in spring and the follow-up to debut single ‘Easy’,a remarkable introduction to the musical world of singer Laville. Whilst influenced via a creative cornucopia as he moved through his teens, more recently has seen this talented vocalist weave his own path with assistance from an array of friends and mutual musical acquaintances. https://youtu.be/TaaNhpyFCnc
His teenage years followed a familiar journey through joy and trauma that saw him singing locally, before a University place beckoned and briefly curtailed his musical ambitions. Employed in a series of jobs, from Michelin starred restaurants, leading front-of-house to help running various musical venues in London Laville has maintained a relentless work ethic, one that has since led back to his first love.
Laville has found the ideal home at the small but perfectly formed Acid Jazz Records, for whom he is the first new male solo artist they have signed since Jamiroquai.

2018 sees Acid Jazz celebrate its 30th Anniversary.
The celebrated East London indie was launched by Eddie Piller and Gilles Peterson in 1988, helmed by Piller for a brief period of world domination as it signed Jamiroquai, The Brand New Heavies and The JTQ, whilst finding a world-wide movement named after it. Always forging its own path – somewhere between ‘70s California, and Soho Mod cool – there have been countless fantastic records and great acts down through the years, 2018 sees the return of two. The Brand New Heavies and Corduroy return with new albums, whilst projects with Leroy Hutson, Martin Freeman and a host of new acts keep the label firmly in the public eye.
