Listen Up: 7 Questions with Laurel
We love a good troubadour like Laurel, whose songs taps into life, love and other such heady topics. The British singer-songwriter — now 25 — has been creating music for half her life, playing her first gig at just 14-years-old. Laurel’s debut album ‘DOGVIOLET’ was released in 2018, and she’s already back in the studio, set to release her second album to much anticipation. We caught up with the young star on her recent trip to New York City, talking all things music at Brooklyn’s cafe-meets-bar-meets-sound room, Public Records.
