Laura Oakes Short Info

Laura Oakes is a British Country Music Artist from Liverpool, England. Coming from a huge Liverpudlian family, where everyone sings or play an instrument, it was only a matter of time before Laura caught the music bug.

She jokes that her family find communicating by singing in three-part harmony just as natural as talking! Laura started thinking about taking music a little more seriously in her teens. She learned how to play the guitar, started to write songs and after discovering Carrie Underwood and the Dixie Chicks at age 14, it was Country Music that had her heart.

Laura graduated from Leeds College of Music in 2012 with a first degree in Popular Music. After graduating, she began recording her first single 'Don't Let It Hit Ya', which was released in September 2013 and landed in the Top 20 on the iTunes Country Chart. Her second single 'Snakes & Ladders' followed in 2014 with similar success.

'There is nothing like performing live,' says Laura, who has spent the last year playing shows including supporting fellow country artists The Shires, Ward Thomas and Raintown. She has also just released her self-titled EP and received nominations in the Song Of The Year category for Snakes & Ladders and Female Vocalist of the Year from The British Country Music Awards and UKCountryRadio.com.

Of the fast-growing British Country Music scene, Laura says she is so excited to be a part of it and to see it being so well received and so loved amongst British audiences!
