THE LOVELY LAURA
Being born into a musical family, Laura had a childhood passion for singing. She was soon encouraged to take up the piano, and in middle school developed her taste for the clarinet. All this did not automatically take Laura into a musical career, as it was only after entering an art degree that she realised her passion for music was stronger and had to be fulfilled. Five years on and she landed a Jazz degree at the prestigious Leeds College of Music, where she was awarded the coveted Spud Murphy trophy for Saxophone.
Since those days The Lovely Laura as we know her has been building up her exhilarating career as a saxophonist and vocalist, with a respectful and loyal fan base in both the Jazz scene and Dance clubs throughout the UK and beyond. She’s being requested to play and record with some of the worlds finest DJ's and producers. She has appeared at some of the most prestigious venues in the world satisfying crowds of thousands. Before taking her residence in Hed Kandi, her other residencies have included Federation, Miss Moneypennys, KissdaFunk, Good Greef, In Bed With Space and DeJaVu; with Laura also playing often for clubs such as Gatecrasher, Ministry Of Sound, The Syndicate, Garlands etc.
As well as her huge reputation in the nightclub world, Laura's Jazz schedule is exceptionally busy with gigs and festivals booked well into the whole year, having previously headlined alongside some of the worlds most respected jazz players. Laura recently recorded her debut jazz album where she not only delivers us with her delightful saxophone, but also showcases her much admired and in demand vocals in her own original material.
In addition to these commitments, Laura has even more musical responsibilities and recording projects. One recent album finds Laura being the featured vocalist with ‘The 39 Steps' by DJ, writer and producer Kato. The album entitled ‘Coming Clean' has a very original sound and style with influences from hip hop, jazz, funk and film scores – due to be finished May '07.
Laura has also been the ever delivering saxophonist in the Guy Manning group, gaining a faithful following and reputation within the progressive rock world.
To finish off her already hectic schedule, she works regularly and closely with the BBC, working on program soundtrack theme songs, often appearing on television herself, playing (strangely enough) a saxophonist!
