Headliner: Laura White
More acts to be announced
ILUVLIVE are launching in Leeds at Hirst’s Yard on the 3rd April 2017 with Laura White headlining alongside upcoming talent from in and around Leeds.
Soulful singer-songwriter Laura White recently released ‘The Painted Door’ EP to critical acclaim and hit no. 4 on the iTunes Soul & R&B Chart, 38 in the iTunes album charts and 52 in the official national charts.
‘Very nice!! I see where she's going with this...Amy style. The gap is there to fill!’ – Ronnie Herel, Mi-Soul
‘Pop star material' – Fault
‘Soul Pop done right, reference points leap from Ella Fitzgerald to Amy Winehouse with Laura able to fuse these disparate influences into something completely unique’ – Clash
In the past six years Laura has written for the likes of Paloma Faith, Rudimental, Rita Ora and Charles Hamilton on 'NY Raining' which featured on the hit TV show Empire. Laura also co-wrote and featured on the Top 20 hit 'Love On Me' by Galantis. Having already caught the attention from the late Amy Winehouse, Adele and Chris Martin, Laura is set to make 2017 her own.
ILUVLIVE is a live music event that launched in London in June 2004 and has now become the UKs premier homegrown live music night. Jessie J, Ed Sheeran, Emeli Sande, Professor Green, Tinie Tempah, Plan B, Chip, Katy B and Wretch 32 are just a few of the acts that we supported, often years before they were signed.
ILUVLIVE have fortnightly/monthly residencies in London, Bristol and Manchester and quarterly events in Leicester. Each event features five acts performing three tracks with a live band. Acts can play with their own band or the now legendry iluvlive house band. ILUVLIVE Leeds will run monthly but with a summer break in June, July and August.
