18 year Dublin soul singer / song writer Laura Izibor has been making waves on both sides of the Atlantic with a style of soul that harkens back to Otis Redding and Aretha Franklin and contemporaries such as Lauryn Hill, Alicia Keys and John Legend.
Laura won the 2fm song contest in 2003 at the tender age of 15, which lead to her signing with Jive US last year on her 17th Birthday after worldwide a&r interest, making her one of the select few of Irish artists to sign directly to a US major label. She is writing the album 100% herself and is also on co production duties. The album will be released in early 2006.
