It seems pretty incredible to our minds that Laura Doggett isn’t already a household name and yet, at the time of writing, the 5 songs on her Soundcloud have just a few thousand plays between them and her Facebook has less than a thousand likes.
There are two reasons why we’ve been struck by Miss Doggett. The first is her voice. It’s deep, rich and soulful. The second is her songs, which are absurdly good. Heard It All Before sounds like it could have sat very neatly on Adele’s 21 long-player, whilst the gentle ballad Sometimes "everybody gets blue sometimes", is blessed with a pop-classicism that makes us believe that Laura was born to do this and only this. Showing off her ability even further, Laura has taken former X-Factor judge, N-Dubz member and ‘female boss’ Tulisa’s song We Are Young and completely reworked it into something pretty special. Yes, really.
Take a listen to the stream of Heard It All Before and the video of Sometimes below and if you’re in London go and check out Laura at a Communion show at Notting Hill Arts Club on the 12th Jan alongside Blog Sound of 2014 nominees Honeyblood and indie six-piece Haus.
