With soul, grace and sass Laura Roy is here with her self titled debut EP and it’s darn right amazing. Laura brings pop-soul to R&B and she does it in a way that’s all her own. The EP is a five song introduction to the Canadian born singer-songwriter. There’s vulnarability ( Full Moon, Take Me Down) Love (Don’t Chase) and empowering anthems (Bright Lights, Looking The Other Way ). All the makings of a perfectly executed body of work. She allows us to get a glimpse of her true self, who could asK for more?
