Welsh country and soul artist Laura Evans comes to Clwb Ifor Bach in February 2023!
Born in the valleys of South Wales, Laura Evans’ love of country, soul and blues music started very early when she listened to old records by Fleetwood Mac, the Eagles, Bonnie Rait, Faith Hill and more.
It has been quite an astounding 2 years for the Welsh, Nashville loving songstress after she burst onto the scene in 2020 with the release of her debut EP “Running Back To You” which charted straight at Number 1 on the UK blues chart and peaked at 43 on the US blues chart as well as gaining huge Spotify playlist support and championed by BBC Radio Wales Planet Rock, and Absolute Country.
But 2022 has been a standout year for Laura Evans with the release of her critically acclaimed debut album ‘State Of Mind’ released July 1st, which topped the iTunes Blues chart at number 1, made her the face of the ‘Nu Blue’ editorial playlist on Spotify, received praise from blues legend Joe Bonamassa, as well as continued support on the BBC Welsh A List and Planet Rock and rave reviews by music press all over the country. The album has now racked up over 500,000 streams on Spotify. Laura toured with Californian southern rock band ‘Robert Jon & The Wreck’ on their sell out UK Tour in April and her live performances have been described as a ‘girl who is the real deal’ “Laura Evans has a stunning voice and the range of styles within the album shows she has a mastery of a range of blues- influenced approaches she is making her own”
Laura tours as special guest with Welsh rock band “Cardinal Black” on their European/UK tour in September and then will go on to join Canadian Blues artist “Matt Andersen” on his UK sell-out in October before her own headline tour in February 2023
