"Laura (Comfort) is a delicate, shimmering artist with an eye for detail and a measured twist with a contemporary tune. One to watch." Musician Magazine.
Originally from New York, but now a confirmed Londoner, the divine Ms. Comfort has been singing from an early age, influenced by her musical parentage.
Laura recalls always having music in the house, with her mother playing piano or her father playing guitar. After singing in school choirs, she began writing poetry and cut her first album with an a cappella group in high-school. While studying at Harvard College, she joined a successful pop band with students from Berkley Music School leading to an East Coast tour and TV appearances.
Since moving to London, Laura began playing guitar and hit the singer-songwriter scene performing in many of London's local Live venues. Shortly after she was catapulted into the spotlight with her first release 'Let the Music Take Control', reaching Top 30 in the Music Week Pop Chart and Top 10 in the Club Chart, championed by Radio One. Her follow-up singles 'Addicted' and 'Mountain' were equally successful, receiving rave reviews, chart action and airplay across the UK and Europe.
After success in the charts, Laura rediscovered her roots and focused on writing more expressive, personal songs, resulting in the release of her much acclaimed 12-track album 'Nature's Child'. IDJ wrote, her songs are "poppy and catchy yet melancholy at the same time." 'Nature's Child' moved up the play-lists on BBC stations across the UK, bolstered by plays on Radio 2, live performances and interviews. A remix of 'Was it Me?' soon followed, adding to the momentum.
Then Laura released her second album, 'The Comfort Zone', an eclectic mix of catchy acoustic pop songs, well-received by the press and radio in the UK and US. Her song 'Take A Chance' was play-listed on many stations across America, bolstered by her video which played on many broadcast and cable stations across the country. Music Week wrote, "Singer-songwriter Laura Comfort's leanings into the folk-pop world show she is a real talent at this. Her easy-on-the-ear voice and laidback approach on single 'Take A Chance' is disarmingly infectious and it's clear that she is destined to make a real dent in the burgeoning folk-pop market."
Now Laura is working on a new album 'Don't Ignore Me' with the legendary Santana producer John Ryan of Chicago Kid Productions. Her first release 'It Hurts' is a beautiful emotive love song with intensely personal lyrics and poignant vocals that will touch a chord with every listen.
