About Lyla Foy:
In most aspects of life, it's usually a good idea to keep your options open, lest you deny yourself the opportunity to explore avenues that might lead to transcendence or, at the very least, a little bit more happiness. But sometimes the best course of action is to find your path and stay focused, which is what Lyla Foy has been doing with her music for the past couple of years, a discovery that has led to the creation of her debut album, Mirrors the Sky, due in spring on Sub Pop.
