Lyla Bull is a powerhouse singer/songwriter hailing from South London, who from the womb was brought up on Soul, RnB, pop, and Motown.
She cites her influences and idols from all genres of music but loves artists such as Whitney Houston, Marvin Gaye, Beyonce, Anderson Paak, Bruno Mars, Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Justin Timberlake, D’Angelo and Anthony Hamilton amongst so many others.
After gaining a place studying music at the free UK performing arts school ‘The BRIT School’ Lyla has performed at venues from Komedia Brighton to the famous Camden Roundhouse and through BRIT she has experience not just in performing at legendary venues but also knowledge of how the industry works. Lyla has always been heavily influenced by girl power and strong females in the music industry- she feels firm that women together empower one another and she makes sure that any music she writes or lends her voice to expresses this view.
In 2017 Sony owned ‘Ultra Records’ heard a top line sung by Lyla, they passed it along to their producer ‘Maywald’ who loved it so much he produced the vocals and sent them to Berlin DJ ‘Mike La Funk’ which resulted in the house smash hit ‘Alive.’
Alive charted in the top 10 on Traxsource and has over half a million streams on Spotify in just over 4 weeks, it was added to the prestigious official Spotify playlist ‘MINT’ with almost 5 million followers and now the Official Spotify Dance Hits playlist with over 1 million followers amongst other amazing playlists such as the Armada Deep House Hits playlist and The Deep House Playlist by legendary DJ Simon Field
Lyla’s newest track ‘Hidden’ with Ben R Saunders was played on BBC Introducing recently and is being championed by DJ Danny Howard at BBC Radio 1. With such previous success, gaining great support and other releases in the pipeline this is just the beginning for Lyla.
