Praise For Laura Hill

"There are no gimmicks attached to Hill, she is a no frills vocalist and she doesn’t need anything more than voice alone" – Vulture Magazine

“Laura Hill. A guitar-slinging chanteuse with a voice that could lay the Southern Ocean down to rest.” – Great Ocean Road Quarterly

"Soothing and tranquil … a great storyteller" – Glam Adelaide

"There's a reason why Laura Hill is considered a top South Aussie act" – Music SA

“Her angelic, expressive vocals were supported by dexterous acoustic and electric guitar, while accompanying herself with percussion played with both feet. Original tunes of great quality and style” – In Daily

“… busting with feel good summer vibes.” – BSide Magazine

“Hill greeted the audience in a conversational manner before playing her first song – unaccompanied. She pushed herself to new limits with a powerful performance, tempered by her sweet voice and masterful use of the guitar, her fingers flying over the fret board” – 5/5 stars! Glam Adelaide 2015 Fringe Review

"Exquisite" – The AU Review

"With her new EP, Powdered Sunshine, Laura Hill proves that she can tackle soulful folk without letting it melt into sugary spin … Nothing is allowed to linger too long; folk twang is offset by pop cheer or melancholy lyricism. The glimmer of tooth and claw that she bares is refreshing and exciting" – RipItUp Magazine

"With themes like love, life and travel featuring strongly in Hill’s lyrics, it’s hard not to be swept away in your mind to a calm coastal town where the sun always shines" – Arts Hub - Quotes

Bio

“Thousands of whispers have revealed one of Australia’s most beautiful secrets and after two years in the making Laura Hill will reveal her new album titled The Secret which is scheduled for release early 2017”.

With a natural beauty as divine as the coast she calls home. Australia and beyond have awoken to this South Australian songbird’s undeniable talent as a songwriter and performer.  From the vines, to the coast and only the good stuff in-between, Laura's melodies have travelled the country building with it an honest and loving following. A singer-songwriter in the great traditions of the craft: fearless, inventive, evocative and honest. A voice that has to be heard to be believed: with range, depth and searing emotion. This warm blend of Americana / acoustic pop is easy to get lost in and is delivered heart-on-sleeve, tempered with a gentle wit, laughter and a thousand tiny insights.

To understand the beauty of Laura Hill’s songwriting, you need to understand a little of the geography. Laura hails from McLaren Vale and a life spent on the Fleurieu Peninsula in South Australia, one of those outrageously privileged places where rolling green hills and vineyards meet an untouched coast, and the sun shines warm and fair over all. Everytime she performs her compositions somehow capture the magic of the landscape, a feeling or a subtle emotion. Laura’s solo shows are a meandering journey from quirky observations on life and love, to the soaring vocals and warm compentent electric and acoustic guitar that charachterise her original compositions.

 Staking a massive commitment to her art she travelled Australia with Darren Longbottom a professional land and oceanscape photographer. With one simple aim: to connect with and capture Australia and it’s people with the power of live music. It’s an approach that harks back all the way to the Delta bluesmen, tried and true: you make your music through lived experience on the road.  With three succesful album releases under her belt and over 10,000 copies sold,  this DIY artist is a refreshing reminder that word of mouth spreads.
