Colchester based artist Laura Wyatt has released her magnificent latest single ‘I Believed’. It is the first single to be taken from her album ‘Last Train Home’ and what a belter it is!
An upbeat band sound greets the listener. Wyatt’s infectious vocals enter, and the piece is in full flow. The chorus is catchy and stays with the listener long after the music has ended. We loved the full band sound, and the well-arranged horns add extra texture to the piece too.
Wyatt says, “I released my first album about fifteen years ago. It was an angsty teenage acoustic album that sits mostly in boxes at the back of my Mum’s barn. I put my original music on hold for over ten years to sing at weddings, teach music to primary school children and write music for adverts. I think I needed to.” She continues, “I did the whole ‘honing my craft’ thing. But I’d always said to myself ‘It’s ok, KT Tunstall was 32 before she made it big, I’ve still got time…’ But somehow, the time has done that thing it does, and I’m turning 32 in October. So, I figured it’s a good year to get out there and actually make this happen!”
‘I Believed’ was recorded and produced by Rubber Jaw frontman Michael Hemmings, Cameron Morrell on drums, Robin G. Breeze on bass, Jonny Poole on sax and Will Heaton on Trombone. Together, the collective has done an excellent job in creating a wonderful piece of art that is destined to stand the test of time.

Laura Wyatt from Suffolk draws inspiration from jazz, soul and country music to create an emotive sound that is wonderfully refreshing and yet comfortingly familiar. Through broken relationships and thousands of miles of soul searching, her songs draw upon the ups and downs of the past ten years. Thoughtful lyrics and beautiful melodies are set to a skilfully crafted accompaniment on the acoustic guitar, and are brought to life by a voice that is raw and passionate.
Recently featured again on BBC Introducing, due to support Matt Cardle on tour in 2020/21 and with a debut album due for release in the summer - Laura Wyatt is certainly one to watch.
