UK based singer-songwriter Laura Beckwith is an upcoming Country-Pop artist. Laura has been drawn to music since a very young age. She started learning to play the piano soon after joining theatre school at the age of three. From then on, she has been songwriting and performing live at various venues in London, Essex and Hampshire and performed in musical theatre shows for many years..
Laura has always been incredibly passionate about performing but it wasn’t until after finishing a two-year intensive course in musical theatre that she realized that she was more interested in music. Laura’s debut single ‘Not in Love’ showcased her delicate vocals and talented songwriting ability whilst coupled with a modern pop production. The single was supported by BBC Essex, Voice FM, and others. During lockdown of 2020, Laura focussed her energy on growing her following through social media and performing virtual live streams. Her songwriting and storytelling finds its natural fit within the Country music scene and the production of her new single ‘Halfway’ complements this significantly.
Laura has always loved Country music and uses the style predominately through her lyrics. Over lockdown she listened to more Country music and after writing the song she knew that she wanted to create and release it as a Country song. The writing process for ‘Halfway’ was done differently to most of her other songs, as she managed to write the lyrics within a day, however the melody and instrumental took much longer.
“ 'Halfway' came after an extremely heated argument that went on for hours. All I wanted was for it to be resolved and somehow forget that it ever happened. Sometimes compromises have to be made in order for you to move on," Laura advised.
Laura Beckwith has previously created songs within the Pop music realm but always felt her lyrical style fitted better with the Country music blueprint so with her latest offering ‘Halfway’ released September 25th, she delivers her very first Country single and it is a major standout. Laura dives headfirst into the Country community with her debut release across the eclectic genre, and with the British and international scene known for being supportive of newcomers, she is sure to be welcomed warmly into the family. With ‘Halfway’ she has found her natural sonic sound and true home within Country music.
Exciting times are ahead for Laura and she has come a long way in terms of confidence and vocal ability from her amazing previous single ‘Not in Love’. 'Halfway' is a brilliant Country crossover offering that allows for the Brit singer/songwriter to delve into a rootsy, Country-driven production style to create a stellar track that is a perfect modern-day Country release.
