In the Twitter bio of Birmingham artist Tayla, you'll find the claim, "I make music. Not friends." But after a night of party-and-studio action alongside the care-free R&B-tinged vocalist, it's clear she assembles a bit of both into her hectic schedule - some incredible music and some vibrant friends. Check out the fun-filled artist at her studio as she prepared new music, followed by a night of action at East London's #gay #drag #GenderFuck #queer #FUN party, Sink The Pink.
