Sheffield music legend Eliot Kennedy is preparing to launch his next budding superstar.
The starmaker, who has written and produced hits for the Spice Girls, Take That, Aretha Franklin and Celine Dion, has been working with 21-year-old Laura Erby, a talented pop and soul singer from Bradford, at his artist development academy in the city.
Grammy and Ivor Novello Award winner Eliot said: “Laura first walked through studio doors a very talented yet shy vocalist.
“She has had her heart set on being a singer since a very early age and we began working on finding her artistic direction. The transformation that has taken place during her time at the academy is almost unbelievable. We’ve helped her channel all of her creativeness, emotion and love for music into her songs and she’s embarking on her journey now as a confident artist and is embracing every second of it.”
Laura’s debut EP ‘Maybe If We Had It all’ was released earlier this month, under the guidance of Kennedy and his team at Steelworks Studios.
Laura said: “There isn’t a single line in any of the songs on my EP that doesn’t have a place in my heart.”
