Introducing Laura Izibor

Monday, April 23, 2007

19-year-old Laura Izibor is already making waves that extend far beyond her native city Dublin, Ireland. Only two years after taking up the piano at age 13, she entered Ireland's prestigious 2FM Song Contest, where she stunned observers by walking away with the main prize. She's the winner of the 2006 Irish Meteor Awards (Ireland's Grammy Awards) "New Hope" category, making her the first unreleased artist to ever win or be nominated.

The songstress has drawn ecstatic comparisons from Lauryn Hill, Aretha Franklin and Alicia Keys to Sade. The acclaim has led to her being invited to share the stage with a variety of artists including Angie Stone, Jamie Cullum, The Roots and the late, great James Brown.

Now known as "The Soul of Ireland," Izibor is readying the release of her first Atlantic Records USA album, Let The Truth Be Told, which she also co-produced. Recorded in Dublin, New York, Atlanta and Philadelphia, the eagerly anticipated album is set for a 2007 release.

Izibor will perform her first industry showcase post-signing in N. America at MUSEXPO on Monday 30, April at 9:10PM at The Viper Room in West Hollywood.
