Biography

Lindy Layton (born Belinda Kimberly Layton, 7 December 1970) was a founding member of, and vocalist for, Beats International. She has released a number of solo albums and singles, and worked with other musicians, more recently including Hardknox and Dub Pistols.

Following the success of the singles with Beats International, in 1990, Layton signed a solo deal with Arista, and released her version of Janet Kay’s hit, “Silly Games”. The single was a notable hit, and further releases followed from her debut album, Pressure (released in 1991). However, these decreased in popularity with each release. Pressure was mostly produced by Norman Cook and the dance-soul-funk outfit Driza Bone. The album’s second single, “Echo My Heart” narrowly missed out on a UK Top 40 placing in January 1991.[1] Whilst “Wait For Love” produced by Norman Cook failed to reach the UK Singles Chart altogether, in April of that year.
Layton’s summer 1991 release of “Without You (One and One)” followed, again produced by Driza Bone. Although “Without You (One and One)” sold better than Layton’s previous single, it still failed to reach the Top 40.[1] Layton then released a one-off single for Debut Records in 1992. “I’ll Be a Freak for You” was not a chart hit. The following year, Layton re-emerged with a new deal with PWL. The new material was more commercial, and two single releases of minor chart success were released in the UK: “We Got the Love” and “Show Me”.[1] Without the expected profitable return Layton parted company with PWL.
