Today we have a free download from a young, unsigned singer songwriter from Staffordshire. Apparently she’s previously performed as Laura and the Tears and “Hey Laura” but now she’s settled on the more formal Laura Welsh , which we think it safe to assume, is her real name. “Ghosts’ is the first song she’s given away after putting a video on-line a couple of weeks ago. Her voice is the sort that can stop traffic, big, emotive, beguiling and imbued with real star quality. A kind of contemporary Judy Tzuke meets Marianne Faithful that ‘s fifty percent soulful fifty percent bluesy and one hundred percent beautiful.
Marina and the Diamonds seems impressed as she recently tweeted about her a week so ago last week. You can download the track below.
and here’s the video.

its also my track of the day 🙂 she has cool voice combined with not tooooo much instruments.
Such a beautiful voice. Elegant, and sonorous, hope to hear lots more from this girl
The embedded mp3 of this is TERRIBLE quality. Whoever recorded it seriously needs to check their volume levels before doing recordings.
But is the song any good? 😉
Erm , plays fine on the PC and three laptops here at VP Towers , are you sure it's not your speakers going on the Fritz Raymondo ? Seriously , it's not even an issue.
so beautiful, I love her voice, this song.
