Laura Wilde is an enigma. With the chops of Lenny Kravitz and the personality and convictions of Russell Brand, she is certainly a force to be reckoned with.
As a spiritually-conscious, environmentally-aware singer/songwriter and award-winning multi-instrumentalist, Laura Wilde is poised to take the world by storm.
Driven by her obsessive love of music, Laura has penned over 100 songs and played over 100 shows internationally. Her past fascination for old-style blues and rock music resulted in her being invited to open for such artists as diverse as Fuel, Shinedown and Ted Nugent. She was even invited to play a private acoustic show for the Saudi Arabian Royal family.
Originally from Melbourne Australia, her talent on both guitar and bass quickly made Laura a heavily sought after musician which led her to work with a who’s who of Australian artists. She also worked for a time as a presenter on Beat TV as well as being part of the house band of Australia’s Got Talent which brought her much recognition.
At 20, Laura moved to Los Angeles, and began work on her rock album, Sold My Soul, which she released in 2012. Laura then promptly set off on 3 national USA tours and played over 150 tour dates within two years. Here Laura received many accolades and rave reviews whilst playing arenas, theaters and clubs across America. 2013 closed with Laura also being invited on a tour of the UK where she was as warmly embraced across the pond as she was in the USA.
During this time, Laura also earned the title of ‘Best New Female Artist’ and was honored at the ‘Vegas Rocks Music Awards 2013’ with the legendary Zakk Wylde and DJ Ashba.
Although Laura’s first love was always good old rock and roll, she felt a need to branch out and explore the use of a myriad of other instruments and sounds.
After years spent traveling the US and UK, writing with a variety of artists and months in the studio alone honing her skills, Laura is excited to share the fruits of her labor. Her relentless quest to find a modern sound that she could call her own has been the catalyst for her evolution into a bona-fide songwriter and master of her craft.
2016 should prove to be an interesting year for not only Laura, but those waiting to see what she has in store for her next musical adventure.
