Lara - soul vocals, acoustic riffs and jazzy melodies tossed into the cooking pot and set to simmer...
So mused one scribe, and he hit the nail on the head, Lara cranks out haunting, souped-up huskiness. You know, spine chills, goosebumps, embodying that steady rhythm wave-lapping aesthetic.
Lara's early projects dabbling in hip hop hooks, folk harmonies, soul, jazz, blues and alternative, were recorded on the cheap during a few beer-addled weekends. Nevertheless, the tunes had garnered many a wistful evening by the fire. Not pretentious or proud; a 'through her not from her acoustic experience'
Since hitting the Cairns scene recently as front vocals for The Soul Objective, Lara has continually expanded her own audio horizons, with a deep appreciation for ambient chill, dub, dubstep and of course reggae with a pinch of rnb, secretly. Lara's played band and duo gigs at Winter Solstice Lifestyle Gathering 2008 & 9, as featuring vocalist with Definite Article supporting the Resin Dogs, with a side line electronic project currently in infancy, preparing to bloom.
Available for low-key acoustic solo gigs at the present, everyone agrees: mmmm . . . delicious!
