"Up & Coming - Laura Healy"

Back when she was in Primary 7, Laura Healy was taken aside and told to stop singing so loudly as she was drowning out all the other children in the class choir......
Seventeen years later, Laura is dedicating more and more time to her burgeoning musical career and has high hopes for the next 12 months.
Her music appeals to all generations - from teenagers who like Avril Lavigne to middle-aged men or women trying to relive their memories of the '80s! - End of Term Magazine, Scotland

"Live Gig Reviews"

"Obvious comparisons could be made with Sheryl Crow and there is a distinctly American Midwest feel to her music. Singing with a heart full of emotion, this multi-talented songstress was magnetic and drew the crowd into her world. " Daily Record Live Review of Laura Healy Classic Grand Gig, Sept 2008

"Chasing Rainbows: EP Review"

“In essence it is Americana, albeit with a Scottish twist giving it a grittier sound……the Joni Mitchell influenced and slightly faster paced “The Untouchable” being the pick of the bunch..” EP Review for Chasing Rainbows 2007

From a very young age, Laura Healy has thrived on singing out loud. As a child, growing up in the greyness of suburban Glasgow, she would amuse herself by hibernating in her room and singing along to Michael Jackson, Sheryl Crow, Gloria Estefan, Chrissie Hynde, Abba and Guns 'N' Roses.

Immediately, Laura found an ease with harmonising the most complex of melodies, but realised an instrument would give her an advantage over the other singers in her musical family. So, much to their horror, she picked up the trumpet and then, thankfully, the guitar.

After bypassing a career in children's television as a Manga cartoon character, Laura worked out in her own mind she had to return to her first love: music.

After recruiting a band full of musicians, she started performing all over Scotland and in England and Ireland, too. For such a small lass, Laura's Celtic-tinged voice hits you with tremendous force: her music draws on everything from chilling rock guitar solos, country harmonies and pop hooks to plaintive folk motifs and gently finger-picked ballads.

Her music has been played on BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio Scotland, featured in a National Theatre of Scotland production and she has also contributed vocals to a number of film scores.
