Laura Victoria performs powerful and original songs of love and life, often accompanied by her own left-field cello playing.


My solo album HEAD ABOVE WATER was released in 2015 and featured as one of the Albums of the Month on Folk Radio UK. 


My first Ep ACTING UP was picked up and released by established label Cherry Red Records and songs from the Ep feature on compilation albums alongside Capercaillie, Woody Guthrie and Marc Almond.   

‘You’d be foolish to ignore this grand slab of originality’. Maverick Magazine.

As a songwriter, I write influenced by folk, pop, country, jazz and music theatre and it is often noted that I have an unusual and original style.
