Bec Laughton, Sheoak Shack, Saturday

If you’re not yet familiar with Brisbane über babe Bec Laughton, it won’t be long before you are! This petite redhead with the ‘lion lungs’ is poised to launch into the stratosphere with her debut EP By The Fire.

Kicking off with a brand-new single and smoking-hot video, Holy Love 2 is just the first of five totally addictive songs recorded in Melbourne with Jan Skubiszewski (Cat Empire, Jackson Jackson, Bliss ‘n’ Eso).

With a healthy mix of old-school funk, mouth-watering melodies, heart-melting lyrics, divine booty-shaking beats, and the powerful guest vocal appearance from Ni.Na Holy Love 2 will have you hooked immediately.

Adding to her ever-increasing string of successes, Bec was named winner at the 2012 Queensland Music Awards, taking out the top honour in the dance / electronic category. The track M&R is the first song taken from collaboration with friend and DJ (Bure Godwin). The Brisbane babe was also nominated in the 2012 International Independent Music Awards and secured nominations in four categories in the MusicOz Awards. With five nominations and high commendations for the Q Song awards across the last three years, there is no question of Lady Laughton’s ability to pen a tune. Demonstrating the range and versatility of Bec’s extraordinary voice, Loop de Loop was the song that landed the budding songstress at #11 on the Triple J roots charts.

To celebrate the release of the brand-new EP, Bec has the road for a string of live shows kicking off in Brisbane. Bec will be showcasing songs from her new EP with a mix of old favourites.

See Bec this weekend at the Sheoak Shack on Saturday.
