Formed in late 2017, Leyda is an indie pop/rock band based in Buffalo, NY. The band consists of five friends: front-woman Saffi (piano/keyboard, vocals, clarinet), Cody Barcroft (bass guitar, vocals), Jose Rojas (violin), Brian Siklinski (guitar), and Joe Vallone (percussion).

“Fronted by multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Saffi, Leyda is in your face and ethereal at the same time, with vibe heavy rhythms and surging riffs charging over strings and a shimmering clarinet that cuts through the looming darkness, and beautifully wrought lyrics that have levels upon levels, features all in even sharper focus on the assured and brave Hallways.” - Buffablog
