On creating “I Imagine You Are Happy”, Laura says, “This is one of my favourite songs I’ve written so far. For me, it perfectly captures how the passing of time can give you a new perspective on past relationships.”

ABOUT LAURA LUCAS:
Canadian born and raised and now based in Australia, 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 comparison to some of music’s biggest names including Lana Del Rey, Phoebe Bridgers, and Taylor Swift. Laura’s debut EP Light the Candle, Hold the Mirror (2022) was produced remotely between Canada and Australia, the five tracks that make up the EP collectively telling the story of how the two places have shaped who she is and where she’s going. She followed the EP with recent single “Wake Up, Breathe In”, the first from her forthcoming EP The Dreamer.
ABOUT LAWSON HULL:
Describing himself as “an Aussie take on Tom Petty, but half as good”, Lawson Hull’s modesty does little to conceal his immense musical and lyrical talent. Warm, atmospheric, and spacious, Lawson’s music oozes comfort and places him amongst Australia’s greatest contemporary indie folk voices: think Angus and Julia Stone, Boy and Bear and #1 Dads. The Newcastle-based artist merges fascinating prose with cinematic production and artful songcraft across his catalogue, that includes 2021 EP Hangin’ Out with Cowboys, 2023 EP Mountain Days, and team ups with Hein Cooper, Old Sea Brigade, and more. Mountain Days was written while Lawson was isolated in nature, sharing memories from living on a little mountain in the Watagan Ranges of New South Wales.
