Laura Roy is a singer/songwriter based in Halifax, Nova Scotia. A captivating songwriter, vocalist, & college music graduate, Laura has shared the stage with the likes of Canadian R&B sensation Jully Black, JRDN, Ludacris, Rakim, & Freddie Gibbs.
Voted "Best R&B Artist" by the Coast Magazine, she is known for her powerhouse Pop/R&B vocals. Laura is also a four-year attendee of the prestigious Gordie Sampson Songcamp, put on by the Grammy-winning writer in Nova Scotia every summer, and was invited to participate in songwriting camps via The Songwriter's Association of Canada in Montreal & Toronto in 2015.
During these camps, Laura had the opportunity to write & connect with producers & writers like Rob Wells (Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande), Alex Greggs (N'Sync, Lady Gaga, Mad Decent), Caitlyn Smith (Meghan Trainor, John Legend, Rascal Flatts, Lady Antebellum & Garth Brooks, Cassadee Pope), & Gordie Sampson himself (Keith Urban, Carrie Underwood, Faith Hill). Needless to say, Laura has come a long way since selling her first EP out of her backpack at the age of 16 on school lunch breaks.
The project contains 6 songs infused with Synth-Pop, 90's R&B vibes with soulful melodies & catchy hooks, she adds "I've been working on the EP for the last year and a half. I've tried to make sure the music represents my experiences in a way that feels true to who I am as an artist right now". Written & recorded in Toronto & New York City with producers Adam King, Joel Stouffer (of Dragonette), & Ari Leff (of Epique), Laura Roy's debut EP is now available on iTunes, Spotify, & Apple Music.
