LA Armour

Laurie Anne Armour, nicknamed LA by her friends, was raised on the shores of Mobile Bay in the Hollinger’s Island community. She grew up learning piano, fiddle, and woodwinds and realized her love for the guitar as a young teen. She performed in the praise band at her church, in concert and marching band at school, and as a solo artist on occasions.

LA began writing songs, performing at open mic nights, and playing gigs at coffee houses and restaurants around Mobile before she was 20. She does a wide variety of cover songs as she continues to write and perform her own originals.

Musical influences range from The Beatles to Lauren Daigle, Bonnie Raitt to Sara Bareilles, and Otis Redding to Lisa Mills.

Her solo style might be described as Contemporary Folk, with her songs drawn from and influenced by her life experiences. She sings about hope, love, passion, loss, sadness, and the strength and will to overcome, with all of it, shaded by faith.

She regularly performs with the praise band at her church and has been a Nappie Awards finalist in 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019. Her first EP is entitled Ebb and Flow.

Doc Leytham

Doc Leytham was raised in Mobile, AL. He was taught how to play guitar at a young age by his father who was a missionary and evangelist. He learned “Folsom Prison Blues”, “Victory in Jesus”, and Under the Double Eagle”. He went to medical school at the University of South Alabama College of Medicine. He is a US veteran and he served six years as USAF medical officer. Through many hardships and personal life struggles, he turned to songwriting and music as a way to deal with a variety of challenging and stressful situations. His songwriting echos the heart and soul of his experiences and it translates into his own “country blues” style of music. Dr. Leytham still practices medicine and continues to see patients while he waits for a call from Willie, Hank Jr., Jimmy, or some other more talented performer who might just one day want to record a song written by a country doctor from “L.A.” (Lower Alabama).
