Born on October 8th, 1991 in the small village of Canning, NS, 20 year old Laura Roy sparked an interest in music and performance at the age of five. She started to make her way on to the music scene at age 13, after showcasing her singing talents at local community contests and shows and at age 14, Laura picked up a guitar and began to compose her own music and lyrics. Not long after learning guitar, Laura wrote her first song titled “Free”. Melding some of her favorite genres of music: r&b, blues, pop and folk, Laura produces a unique sound with all of her original songs and sets herself apart from other musicians with her clear, powerhouse vocals.
Upon her graduation from the Music Arts Program at NSCC Waterfront Campus in Dartmouth NS, Laura has been taking big steps into her future career as a singer/songwriter and performer. On top of releasing two singles on iTunes titled “High Road”, “Imma Do Me” and working towards her debut album Laura has spent the past year proving herself to the East Coast Hip Hop scene by working/collaborating with artists like Classified, Quake Matthews, Cam Smith, Kayo and Al Boogie. This past summer she attended the Gordie Sampson Song Camp in Ingonish, Cape Breton, spending a week writing along side other young songwriters such as Carleton Stone, Dylan Guthro, Mo Kenney, Molly Thomason and many more. With highlighting performances this past summer at Tall Ships CBC Stage, Energy Rush Concert at Alderney Landing and HUFF Music Festival Laura is quickly making a name for herself and continues to leave her fans wanting more. Her captivating stage presence, songwriting abilities beyond her years and incredible voice has made other artists described her as someone to watch.
