About Laura Kits


Bio

Laura is a singer and songwriter from Amsterdam. She makes unique and flavorful country-pop, sometimes with a heavy Western rock ‘n roll sound, sometimes with a subtle vintage folk twist, and always with a heavy dose of poetry and lyrical prowess.

She successfully tested the waters with her debut EP Skipper Canyon Road in 2017 – which received critical acclaim from national radio channel NPO2, among others. Her upcoming album Holy Fountain Water marks a transition towards a songwriting style that is ‘a bit more of everything’. More mature, more courageous, more experimental, and at the same time more Country with a capital C. It was inspired by a whole lot of musical exploration, soul-searching, and a quest for lyrical honesty, leading to a new sound that feels refreshingly original and comfortably familiar at the same time.

When Laura is not singing, writing songs, or discussing music with her band mates, she rides horses and makes oil paintings.
