Canadian born, Australian based singer-songwriter and poet Laura Lucas fell in love with storytelling from a young age. Her introspective songwriting is charmingly delivered by delicate vocals and dreamy instrumentation rooted in a warm, modern take on the indie-folk genre. Laura’s ability to captivate listeners and distill complex emotions through song has earned her comparisons to the likes of Lana Del Rey, Phoebe Bridgers, and Taylor Swift.
Occasionally, her two disciplines merge, such as with poem-turned-song Moon Dream, which UK-based blog For the Rabbits described as “a luxurious slice of alt-folk, a tapestry of rich vocal harmonies.” Laura’s work as a poet is “something that shines through in her lyrics and adds another layer of creativity to her songs” (Buzz Music). Her poetry has appeared in various publications such as About Place Journal, Press 53, Iris Literary Journal, and elsewhere.
Lost and Found, the first single from Laura’s debut EP, is about finding yourself in a city that feels like home. The full EP Light the Candle, Hold the Mirror, which was recorded entirely remotely between Canada and Australia with producer Garrett Kato (Ziggy Alberts, Kyle Lionhart), is set for release in 2022.
