Streetbeat recording artist Laura Bradley is offering fans a free download of her single “Skin” when they sign up for her mailing list on her website.
“Skin,” the first single from Bradley’s debut CD Storm, is featured in the soundtrack of the upcoming feature film Right Love, Wrong Time (a Silver Heart Production) and on the upcoming Females on Fire II compilation on Warrior Girl Records. Storm will be released digitally on June 26, 2006.
Bradley was a featured performer at May’s Independent Music Conference in Dallas, TX. Toni Koch, in her review of Bradley’s performance, said, “Miami's Laura Bradley walked gracefully on stage and with her sultry, soulful voice laid bare her soul with songs of love including her track, ‘Skin’, which will be included on Females on Fire II. Listening to Laura sing is like sitting near a warm fire on a Sunday evening after a beautiful weekend with your favorite friend or lover, watching the crackling flames, being at peace, knowing you're in a safe place and able to ride through any Storm.”
“Laura's music is textured on her cd Storm with full arrangements and band, but being solo with guitar tonight showed the artist's essence as a songwriter and courage as a performer,” continued Koch. “A gentle spirit, Laura's lyrics tell stories of personal growth while appealing to the audience because everyone can relate…Laura, is an ethereal being ‘spreading her fairy dust’ as one of the industry reps mentioned at IMC 2006 [while] listening to her music during one of the conference panels.”
With Storm, Bradley creates a singular pop sound that is haunting, languid, lush, and in places, cleverly amusing. Evocative of Sarah McLachlan and Amy Lee of Evanescence, Bradley's classical three-octave range has a pop sensibility all its own as she performs an anthology of her poignant stories of love, loss, and longing.
Storm, as well as Bradley’s Anthems compilation, featuring national anthems of numerous countries including her native Canada, will be released digitally on June 26, 2006. Bradley’s latest project is the recording of a classical CD, featuring renditions of “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring,” “Ave Maria,” and “The Prayer.".
