18 year old (18 today – happy birthday!) Portsmouth based singer songwriter Laurel is pretty special. She started her music career when she was 13 and has already played alongside other successful musicians such as Ed Sheeran, Tinie Tempah and Katy B. She previously went under the name Under The Laurels before deciding upon the more simple, but less Google-friendly, Laurel.
Here’s her beautiful song Next Time:
She’s playing at Great Escape this weekend, alongside the amazing Lianne La Havas and Lucy Rose, at the Komedia Studio Bar. Make sure Laurel is one of the acts you have pencilled in to see this weekend, you won’t be disappointed.
