What can I say about this next artist? Laura Izibor an artist, musician, producer from Dublin, Ireland. What an amazing and soulful voice she has. Personally, I’m not as fond of her studio album recordings as much as I am when she plays live with just her and her piano. I feel as though the studio album is overly produced and takes away from the talent. Don’t get me wrong. Laura Izibor is still worth the downloads of her music but the live performances that I’m sharing possess a true look into what she is about musically and vocally. It truly is a goose-bump kinda feeling to witness her in the raw. Izibor cites James Brown, Aretha Franklin and Carole King as her inspirations.She described Phil Lynott as her idol, while naming Roberta Flack, Nina Simone, Candi Staton and Thin Lizzy her “musical heroes”.
