Welcome to Layton's Website 🐶

I'm the luckiest man in the world

Thanks to everyone who listens to my music this year! It's my pleasure to share my music with the world. Without you guys, I would not be able to feel complimented. Tbh, I really appreciate that you guys can relate to my music. They all are my true stories, like my diary, my life experience. I'm the luckiest man. I hope I can still make some music for myself and the worlds. Although I might be slow releasing them, I have another career now for my future. I will keep doing music because this is what i love and this is how I express my feelings. Hope you guys enjoy them when they come out. I wish you all the best and have a joyful next year.

I want to review some things i did this year. I had an amazing show in Taiwan earlier this year. I feel so much energy from the audience and so grateful that you guys are buying my cassette tape and T-shirt. I can't imagine, they will be sold out in a month. I made this website from scratch feel so good. Now I can write some posts and talk to you who are reading now! Moreover, It's so awesome that 42 people sign up for this website.I got a nice acoustic guitar this year and it helped me write a few songs. Can't wait to share with you guys soon once I finish the arrangement.

In August, I sang on a boat with my Acoustic Guitar on the Chicago River at my friend's wedding. It was super romantic, surrounded by amazing architecture and lovely people. I want to do it again!  At another gig in Chicago, Nicole, Natasha and I played a show in a tea shop. It was a fun night, I finally could play a show with them and perform our songs to friends. After these two shows, I really enjoy playing shows, especially acoustic sets. When I hold my guitar, I feel so confident. 

This year, I produced two songs with 9m88 and a remix with DSPS. It's my pleasure to work with talented people. I hope next year will be the same to and know more artists. In Oct, I went to LA to work with several musicians for a song. I said hi to many friends that I met in Chicago and finally met my guy kyle. He is the best! He added soluck me synth to the honey ginger tea. We also made several tracks in his place. Lovely trip :)

Lastly, besides music, I hope I become a better person or make some progress that being more mature. I can't wait to be on the next stage soon, super excited. I will probably stay in Chicago for one or two years or more for my first full time job. I am glad everything happened! I know I am not smart, not talented and not hard working enough, and I'm pretty sure I'm a lucky person. I hope I can keep working hard, be passionate and commit to everything that I decide to do. I wanna be a better person someday. 

Thanks to the people who helped me and shared your time with me this year, I feel grateful to be friends or work partner with you.

Please forgive me if I forgot you :)  I'm the luckiest man in the world and I love this world so much!!

Best,

Layton Wu

Just registered to say hi, thank you for your music, I accidentally found your tracks on Spotify someday, and love them so much since then. I've been to 犬犬犬 live, and it was amazing. Hope you have a great great 2022, and look forward to your new songs. 🎶 ðŸŽ¶

夏夜晚風

我一直以來對夏夜晚風這首歌都抱持著這不是我的歌的想法,因為作詞作曲人是伍佰老師,並不是我自己創作,我只是翻唱或可以說是重新編曲,有時候會有點不想要唱這首歌或者希望其他歌也能受到一樣的關注。

但我今天發現了一件事,許多我很喜歡的音樂人,其實都有翻唱別人的歌,而且也是受到矚目的翻唱,像是 D’ Angelo - Feel Like Makin’ Love 是翻唱 Roberta Flack, Whitney Houston - Saving All My Love 是翻唱 Marilyn McCoo 和 Billy Davis Jr., Aaliyah - At Your Best (You Are Love) 是翻唱 The Isley Brother, Beyoncé, Luther Vandross - The Closer I Get To You 是翻唱 Robert Flack, Donny Hathaway 還有很多….

雖然我不知道他們自己是怎麼想的, 為什麼想翻唱, 放入專輯, 歌受到大家喜愛,有什麼想法。但我想了一想, 其實許多歌手拿別人的詞曲來唱, 就是翻唱,如何詮釋一首歌好像也是蠻重要, 它就變成了歌手自己的歌。 下次我在唱或聽自己的夏夜晚風之後, 不會再想這個問題了!翻唱別人的歌, 現在主要是我練習我喜歡音樂人的編曲,希望近期可以帶給大家, 剩下一首還沒完成, 之後我就要去好了做自己專輯了

Tyler is the best!!

I super agree with what Tyler said!

我越來越覺得沒有一件事是對或是錯,而是每一個人站的角度不同而已。我猜想大家決定一件事的對錯,喜勿,是非都是用過往個人的經驗,而每個人的成長背景都不相同,用自己過往的經驗來定義或批評他人好壞是否好?我個人是越來越不會定義他人的是非對錯,其實我覺得這根本不重要,更重要的事是被背後的原因。 理解之後,即便許多人覺得是錯的行為,如果能說服我,我不會說他錯,但也不會說他對。被背後的原因才能使我們大家更加了解社會上的問題。不要誤會我,但我仍然心中有一把尺是對著自己, 因為只有自己評論自己的行為對錯是合理的,或者可以說會做還是不會去做。舉例來說,也是我去年有感而發開始了這一套想法,經過了美國較為激烈的抗議事件(有些人會說暴動洗劫),但我不會說這一件是對還是錯, 第一點我並不是參加抗議的人,或者是受壓迫的人,基於幾點下,我覺得完全沒有權利去說,而且我能理解有些人這樣做的原因,但是有犯法的行為就讓司法去定義吧。我內心只知道一件事,就是我不會去做這一件事。
