The Southern California, and now Nashville transplant group’s fourth full-length album, “Life Imitating Life,” and first for Washington Square and Razor & Tie sees singer, guitarist, and songwriter Daniel Layus wholeheartedly embracing Augustana’s musical touchstones, while simultaneously progressing. His own journey proves central to these ten tracks, making for a passionate, poetic, and powerful story.

2011 will be remembered as a turning point for Layus both personally and professionally. The original members of the quintet decided to disband and go their separate ways.

“We had and still have a very special connection from our upbringing on the road for eight years, we were all struggling to find something new and exciting within what we were doing together. It took a while for us a while to let that all settle, sink in, and figure out who we were and how we could move forward. Once we decided what we all wanted to do, I took some time to really sit back and make sure writing and making records and performing on the road was something I was still passionate about, it didn’t take me long before I knew what the answer was and I started writing. A lot of things started to really come into focus for me both on and off stage in my life and that’s really the foundation for a lot of this record.”
