Laura Elizabeth Hughes is a new Dublin singer/songwriter whose voice and music have captured fans around the world in large numbers before she had ever played a gig. In one recent 24hr period her bedroom recorded videos of her singing had ¼ million views on YouTube, bringing her total to over 1.5 million and thousands of subscribers. Dublin live club scene learning her stagecraft. The repeat bookings and music blog reviews show her music is having the same impact in the real world as it has online. Already Laura has a songwriting ability far beyond her young years and a powerful, glacial voice that is as pure as the driven snow. During her performances you could hear a pin drop and there there are always moments when the hairs stand up on the back of everyone’s neck. Laura may be a new talent, but it’s rare that a talent arrives so fully formed. This summer Laura launched a Fundit campaign to finance her debut EP and it became one of the most highly supported music campaigns ever on Fundit. The EP will be launched in November with a supporting Irish tour. For a free music download visit
