South African born singer/songwriter Laura Reed has been making a name for herself globally with her soulful vocals, vulnerable songwriting, and electric live performances. Laura is known for her genuine ability to take the struggles and heart- ache we all share, and crafting them into catchy and positive anthems. Laura is currently based in Nashville, where she recently signed a publishing deal with SONY/EMI and is working on the release of new music and playing shows, most recently sharing the stage with India.Arie, Miguel, and Anthony Hamilton.
Laura was encouraged to make the move to Nashville by mentor, former music executive and Grammy award winning producer, Paul Worley (Lady Antebellum, The Band Perry, Dixie Chicks). It was Paul who introduced Laura to the producer and co-writer of her project, 2X Grammy award winner SHANNON SANDERS (India.Arie, John Legend, Pink).
"I don’t really have words to express how much I love Laura's music," says Worley. "It's real, it's authentic, it's what the world needs."
"Laura has a rare combination of gifts- musical and spiritual," states Sanders. "She reminds me that real music and real people still exist".
Laura started by playing open mics and coffee shops at 16 and not long after touring and recording independently. Laura's musical journey has taken her all over the world, building a loyal fan base and influencing her style and music. This touring experience and commitment to her craft has developed a sound and message that is authentically her own.
