Introducing - Laura James

Cumbria-born singer-songwriter Laura James and her band The Lyres released her latest EP Every Little Amber and accompanying video this week.

The two-track EP, also featuring Bluebells, is a follow-up to her 2011 The Bed Of The Brook EP and 2013 single The Water.

Every Little Amber sees Laura release her first music video and she explains the thinking behind the video - "The song is about being asleep through life and relationships in one way or another.  I wanted to convey this by having a bed set up in lots of inappropriate places.  It felt like a fun way to do it without being too silly and at times it felt like a bit of a social experiment.  We visited some of my favourite locations, Lake Buttermere being a stunning one.  We also filmed in The Georgian Quarter in Liverpool, near where I used to have a beautiful little flat, and Formby, which is just gorgeous in general."

The two-track EP is out now on download and CD from Laura's bandcamp.

She plays the following dates to support the release.

September 18 - Leaf, Liverpool
September 21 - Tideswell Village Arts Festival
September 22 - Oporto, Leeds
September 26 - The Nursery Inn, Hartlepool
October 7 - The Castle Hotel, Manchester
