Laville's teenage years followed a familiar journey through joy and trauma that saw him singing locally, before University briefly curtailed his musical ambitions. His debut album, The Wanderer, was steered by the expert hand of producer Tristan Longworth. Fascinated by cinema and poetry, Laville's lyrics dig a little deeper than most. Love, passion and commitment are recurring themes on the album, with Laville moving from the super-smooth ''Love Shine'' to the curiously infectious ''Wavy Love.'' ''Easy'' is a reflection on his gritty North London roots, and soulful standout ''The Answer'' is about toxic relationships. A bold voice that adds something distinctly new to the tapestry of soul, Laville's talent is too strong to remain a secret forever. It's time for The Wanderer to come home.
