What The World Knows is an album containing all the evidence that 25-year-old Laura Sheeran from Galway is one of the most exciting talents that this island has produced in many years. Again, mixed by Marc Aubele, it features beautiful songs, a hugely enjoyable left-field sound, amazing beeps and blips, soaring vocals and a musical intelligence way beyond her years.
The first single from the record, FOREVER LOVE, was an instant hit. Her free download, available from Soundcloud, reached the 7,000 plays mark within five days of release, an astonishing figure for an independent Irish artist. Laura has recently recorded an album for her new project, NANU NANU, an “alien electro pop” duo with Marc Aubele.
Laura is a Dublin based musician, composer and artist who also works with film and theatre. Her reputation and following have been growing steadily since she started her solo music project in 2005. 2010 saw the release, and immediate success, of her debut offering, the free-to-download EP Music for the Deep Woods. Following a successful crowd-funding campaign (with UK-based Pledge Music), Laura’s double album Lust of Pig and the Fresh Blood was released in April 2011 in double vinyl album, CD and digital formats.
Laura was born in Galway in 1987. At the age of 15, her voice came to the attention of a family friend, Clodagh Simonds (Mellow Candle, Mike Oldfield, Fovea Hex), who was looking for someone to sing harmony vocals on material from her new group project, Fovea Hex. Laura appeared with Brian Eno and Robert Fripp on two Fovea Hex records.
