Focus on WHY

A podcast with purpose!

Focus on WHY is all about WHY people do WHAT they do.

People who align their work with their values. 

Are you looking for fulfilment and purpose in your life?

Without a compelling WHY, you may lack clarity or the ability to make informed choices and wise decisions.

Imagine the positive impact you could make if you valued your work and you were valued for your work!

What happens when as an international blues and jazz singer your voice suddenly produces robotic noises instead of talking normally? This is what happened to Kerri Layton as she shares her shocking story of how at the height of her singing career she was rushed straight in for an emergency operation on her vocal chords. Terrified, Kerri went into that hospital theatre not knowing whether she would ever sing again.



“The state of energy which has kept me open to possibilities was having a sense of play. I never lost that childlike sense of play.”



Kerri Layton is a singer-songwriter, bandleader, agent and teacher. Director of Dixiebird Records and Vintage Performing Arts Academy, Kerri sings, directs, produces and books bands for international events, alongside using her unique methods to empower youth and teach performing arts. 

Kerri trained in Moscow, Russia with the Californian Association of Youth Leaders, before working as Head of Drama. Going on to work as Head of Entertainment at a London events company and touring the world as a jazz singer. In 2018 Kerri was nominated for the Peter Whittingham Jazz award for her original song 'Lady of the Dead'. 

Kerri now lives in Hackney with her happy dog, Memphis.
