Laura Cole

Canadian Rock and Soul Singer Songwriter, Laura Cole, finds the raw, gritty glory in a ‘Dirty Cheat’ – her debut EP produced by Grammy Winner Steve Bigas and Executive Produced by the Legendary Daniel Lanois. A compromise free, colourfully blunt songwriter, Laura brings her edgy, soulful and distinctively bluesy musical vision to life in this EP. Cole draws on a wide swath of rock, jazz and R&B influences ranging from Etta James and Aretha Franklin to Billie Holiday, Sam Cooke and the late Amy Winehouse.
