Laurel landed Grammy-winning Philip Allen (Adele) and Grammy-nominated Luke Tozour as co-producers on her 2014 folk debut Lightning. Together they yielded a striking EP that received accolades and radio play across the globe. Released independently, her debut single “I Want You” charted overseas, and the EP debuted on the iTunes Album Charts.
Laurel once again called upon Allen to record her critically acclaimed LP Runaway. Critics called first single ‘Whiskey’ a “beautiful masterpiece of a song” (FTCR), praising Laurel’s craft which allowed her to “flourish at the hands of honest music-making.” Yahoo! Music premiered single ‘Come On Come On’ and Relate Mag declared “The song ‘The Unravelling’ will follow me around for the rest of my life."
