"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 be...en 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 Dave Pearce and Scott Mills at Radio One. Her follow-up singles 'Can't Get Enough,' 'Mountain' and 'Addicted' were all 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’, and 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.
“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.” Music Week
In 2015, Laura returned with a more organic rock ’n’ roll sound. Her single Come Take A Ride reached Number 18 in the UK Club Charts. Laura’s new album Don’t Ignore Me, produced by John Ryan (Santana, Styx, Lynyrd Skynyrd), is available now.
