Laura Elizabeth Hughes first came to my attention while she was still a teenager when I heard songs she had posted online. Her voice made the hairs on my neck stand up. I may have been early to find her talent, but millions of listeners have now had the same reaction listening to songs she recorded at home on a webcam, one of which got 1/4 million streams in less than 24 hours.
As a songwriter, Laura writes to the heart of a song with lyrical texture and emotional punch. She has an innate sense of melody that works across genres. I’ve never asked her to, but she could probably sing the phonebook and make it beautiful. These talents, combined with her vocal ability, make her a great collaborator and top line writer. We are very proud and happy to have Laura sign publishing and bring her vocal and writing abilities to The Nucleus.
