What The World Knows, the second album from Laura Sheeran, was released last Friday on Flaming June records.
What The World Knows arrives one year after her debut, Lust of Pig and the Fresh Blood.
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.
You can order What The World Knows from http://www.flamingjunerecords.com and from Laura’s own Bandcamp page. It’s available digitally and also as a limited edition CD, with a couple of CD / DVD / artwork bundles available. The album will be released on vinyl this summer.
