-- South African born singer/songwriter Laura Reed has been making a name for herself globally with her powerhouse vocals, thought provoking lyricism, and captivating performances. Her musical journey started as a teen, playing at open mics and coffee shops around North Carolina and the South Eastern United States. Her focus was as a poet and storyteller at first, however over time Laura developed a strong unique voice that was all her own, an empowering message of Unity, and the authentic experience to translate this message with music. She toured relentlessly as the front woman of the South Eastern based band, Laura Reed and Deep Pocket, as well as recording and performing with various other projects and artists such as George Clinton, Killer Mike, Karl Denson, and even Jewel.
Laura is currently based in Nashville, Tennessee; where she recently signed a publishing deal with EMI/SONY-ATV. Laura was encouraged to make the move to Nashville by mentor, former music executive and Grammy award winning producer, Paul Worley (Lady Antebellum/The Band Perry/The Dixie Chicks). It was Paul who introduced Laura to the producer of her upcoming project, "The Awakening", 2X Grammy award winner Shannon Sanders (India.Arie, Robert Randolph, John Legend).
Laura is planning to release her debut solo album, "The Awakening", Summer of 2014. The most recent single off the upcoming album "Wake Up", has been featured on VH1's hit show, "Hollywood Exes" and the Alicia Keys Indy Film endeavor, "The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete". She is currently performing live with her band around the South Eastern US, most recently sharing the stage with international touring acts India.Arie, Miguel, Daley and Anthony Hamilton.
