After the runaway success of her debut EP, Fund:it campaign and first Irish tour, young Dublin singer/songwriter Laura Elizabeth Hughes is back on the road with new music and a strong sense of momentum building behind her. This time last year Hughes was playing her first live shows, now she is heading towards 2 million YouTube views, attracting international label interest, has a national Irish tour and her first UK dates.
Laura will perform her first shows outside of Ireland on May 17th on the Isle of Man and the famed Ronnie Scotts in London on May 20th.
Hughes’ songwriting is mature far beyond her years, she captures moments of beauty, loss and hope in a way that makes them feel like frozen scenes from a play. But for many people, it is her voice that first turns them from listeners into fans. She sings with a glacial purity that effortlessly drifts over several octaves and send a shiver down your spine.
Having already been featured in Hot Press, The Irish Times, The Irish Independent and on national TV/radio, Laura Elizabeth Hughes is one of the hottest rising stars in the Irish music scene and a name you will hear a lot more of in the future. Her self titled debut EP is available on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Tower Records and direct from her official website. Buy her music, see her play live and remember where you heard of her before she becomes famous.
To coincide with the tour, a new video and a free bonus track, ‘For The Birds,’ will be available here: www.LauraElizabethHughes.com
