Armed with an acoustic, a misshapen mic and a Loop Station, seaside dweller Laura Charms is lost in the world of music.
Inspired by the likes of Welch, Tunstall and Morissette, Laura's music is both soulful and uplifting. On stage she soars with sultry melodies and cheeky pop strummers and when you least expect it, launches into a ramshackle series of beats and vocal grooves she cooked up right there and then on her trusty Loop Station.
Laura's acoustic shows are warm, friendly and involving affairs that effortlessly envelope you in her world; a world of kooky optimism. And when the show is over, you can't help but feel that just for a moment you stepped into a world just that bit more vibrant and colourful than the one you usually inhabit...
From Hendrix to Jeff Beck, The Pretenders to Blondie, Laura has been surrounded by a wall of sound from the word go. As the daughter of an impressive lead guitarist, Laura's earliest memories are of smoky bars and dirty blues riffs. Experimenting with a karaoke machine to make old school cassette tape-to-tape overdubs, Laura starting writing songs way before she understood what half of them meant!
Having famously chased after Courtney Love to hand over her demo CD, Laura is not afraid of taking a chance. With over 8 years of solo and band experience as a live and recording artist, Laura's many shows include the trendy Proud Galleries in Camden, Mr Kyps, favoured by many great American and British bands, live performance on BBC Radio and perhaps most memorably, entertaining hundreds of early morning festival goers as they queued in the rain for their hot showers at the End of the Road Festival.
When not strumming out tunes, Laura's passion is Youth Work, inspiring and encouraging young people through music. Having spent a number of years running a successful youth music project on the South Coast, Laura is no a stranger to the worlds of youth events and festivals.
With her original songs and unique take on life, Laura is both accessible and ethereal; a winning and delightful juxtaposition.
Laura has a promotional pack available, including photographs and a demo CD. Please contact: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
