Open Mic Night @ The Cornish Arms
“One day I’ll be brave and sing from my own pocket of life.”
With soothingly gentle tones and simple sounds radiating from Laura’s guitar, her acoustic pop originals commanded the undivided attention of the crowd.
“When I write my songs it’s rarely about myself, I always find myself taking on experiences of those I love around me and a way of processing this is through songwriting. I write for and from them.”
She truly loves singing and performing in general and whilst this was her 2nd open mic night ever, she has played regularly for café crowds.
Laura is set on a career in the music industry, not only as a musician but also in terms of working for music magazines. She completed her Bachelor of Pop Music, and is now studying a Bachelor of Communications, whilst working part-time in retail.
Speaking to other musicians on the local scene:
“Don’t be put off by people talking.”
To encourage people to listen to live music at the grass roots level:
“Come down and experience something you wouldn’t normally.”
Unfortunately she’s only visiting in Melbourne and is returning to NZ for studies, however you can keep up with her awesome tracks on her soundcloud account: https://soundcloud.com/laura_taylor-1
