Little Concert and Airbnb present Laura Oakes at Knowhere Special
Join us at the secret speakeasy called Knowhere Special in Kentish Town. Order a cocktail or two, let the music lap over you, and you'll swear that you've somehow crossed the Atlantic. Come and discover why Laura Oakes is regarded as a big reason behind the explosion in popularity of country music in the UK.
Laura Oakes is a British Country Music Artist from Liverpool, England. Coming from a huge Liverpudlian family, where everyone sings or play an instrument, it was only a matter of time before Laura caught the music bug.
She jokes that her family find communicating by singing in three-part harmony just as natural as talking! Laura started thinking about taking music a little more seriously in her teens. She learned how to play the guitar, started to write songs and after discovering Carrie Underwood and the Dixie Chicks at age 14, it was Country Music that had her heart.
'There is nothing like performing live,' says Laura, who has spent the last year playing shows including supporting fellow country artists The Shires, Ward Thomas and Raintown.
She has also just released her self-titled EP and received nominations in the Song Of The Year category for Snakes & Ladders and Female Vocalist of the Year from The British Country Music Awards and UKCountryRadio.com.
