I welcome you Laura at SANGKRIT, please tell our netizens about yourself ?
I have been singing ever since I could speak, I did my first show when I was 5years old singing an old folk song called ‘The Wild Rover’ and then I guess it went from there…I didn’t stop. Growing up in Wales I was always surrounded by music, my aunty and uncle were singers, and I looked up to them like my very own popstars, I just knew at very young age, I loved music and singing live. I decided to leave Wales to study at a theater school in London, Sylvia Young Theater School, which little to my knowledge at the time churned out very famous starlets… Amy Winehouse was at school with me, and at the time i just remember thinking everyone was soo gifted and talented, i felt very lucky and a little scared at times to be pursuing my career with these kids! :)
How long have you been working on this project for ?
I have been working on this project for almost a year and a half.
Which song are you most excited for people to hear ?
I am super excited about a song I wrote with my producer and co-writer Jeff Zacharski called ‘Remember When’… it has such a sweet sentiment and great vibe! and its more of an upbeat song, I am a sucker for ballads! so i’m excited to share something new.
Who were your biggest musical influences ?
I grew up listening to the Jackson 5, Mariah Carey,Whitney Houston, The Carpenters, the Eagles, Sterophonics, and more,i feel like they all have influenced me.
What is something you learned recently about singing, and what are you learning about right now?
I learn something new everyday! ha I used to beat myself up about not being able to sing something perfectly or hit a note clean, but now i think I am happy with what i can and can’t do vocally and sometimes imperfections can make you stand out as an artist.
Do you try giving messages in your songs? If so, what are they?
I always have a story to tell in my songs, and they are usually about everyday life stuff….which am sure most people can relate to.
Do you have any plans for an international tour on your horizon?
I would love to do an international tour!!! watch this space…?:)
