Singer-songwriter, saxophonist and producer
Laura Misch is gradually defining her sound through the synthesis of her two main voices – saxophone and vocals. Knitting together these isometric components by means of explorative productions which nod ever further to the hallmarks of electronic music; Laura’s fusion of jazz textures, beats and searching soundscapes have placed her peacefully landlocked between many bubbling scenes within the south London locale.
Laura released her first self-produced LP Playground in May 2017, from which the support gained saw her appear live on BBC 6 in session with Gilles Peterson, with further radio plays on BBC Radio 1 and Jazz FM.
This was followed up by the deep and enveloping single ‘Lagoon’ in February 2018 premiered on Toronto based music knowledge hub Music is My Sanctuary; seeing her supporters grow with plays from the likes of Phil Taggart and Jamie Cullum on BBC Radio 1 & 2 alike.
After a successful first UK headline tour in February 2018, Laura took her one-woman show across Europe supporting Tom Misch, before stunning a sold-out Elgar Room at the Royal Albert Hall in April. The past summer has seen Laura’s name featured in many festival line-ups including End of The Road, Visions, All Points East, Meadows in The Mountains & Oslo Jazz festival. She then capped this off supporting Texan three-piece Khruangbin in their European tour in October 2018.
2019 saw her play successful shows at SXSW and The Great Escape Festival, as well as supporting Alfa Mist on his UK tour.
Having recently released latest mini album ‘Lonely City’, she says about the work: “I made sound worlds which honestly reflect the city and the times. At times confrontational – there’s an underwater bomb sample I collaged repeatedly, which to me sounds like collective fear, and at times monotonous – which you’ll find in Elevator, which was a direct response to elevator music. In contrast this all the singing came from a centred place and was recorded in my bedroom.”
“Another new generation jazz influenced artist… she not only plays saxophone and sings, but she arranges and plays keyboard and does the whole thing. She’s an amazing talent.” – Gilles Peterson.
