A London singer/songwriter released her long awaited EP after several years of sweat and hard work.
Named Best Pop Artist for two straight years at the London Music Awards – Laura has become a highly respected talent within the city’s music community.
Now with the release of her E-P, Secret Emotion, she’s ready to show Londoners and the world just how brightly her passion burns for performing and she’s excited.
“I’m able to do something that I absolutely love” Laura said.
“Right from when I was age five, snoozing under my mom’s piano right up until now – I don’t feel like I’ve ever had a job in my entire life because all it is – is just doing music.”
In her career – Laura has garnered attention through the local music circle – blending a balance of soulful contemporary pop with elements of rock and roll.
Overall she feels she’s been blessed with getting a little help from her friends.
“The community itself has been a huge gigantic help with the support of my fellow musicians and fans,” Laura said.
“It’s been a crazy ride, a good roller coaster ride.”
Laura currently works with acclaimed vocal coach, Elaine Overholt – who’s worked with the likes of Ray Charles, Tina Turner, and Dionne Warwick.
When it comes to what advice she’d give to aspiring singer/songwriters – Laura it’s especially important to not be afraid to ask questions.
“Even the stupidest, silliest questions,” she said. “I’m very passionate about that because I’ve been through it all and I’m just super excited and very fortunate to be doing what I’m doing.”
“It’s been a lot of hard work but hard work really pays off and I am a product of it.”
“She was a high class hooker in Toronto – which I did not know until she explained it all to me,” Laura said.
“When I walked into her place – she had a shrine in the corner of her room with voodoo dolls and lots of hair and it was really strange but basically that’s what inspired me to write it.”
Most recently, Laura has been linked with acclaimed producer, Nick Panaseiko – who’s known for bringing the band KISS to Canada – and discovering Shania Twain.
She’s also working with master photographer, John Rowland – who’s shot the likes of the Beatles, David Bowie and Alice Cooper.
