Good news! One of my favorite, inspiring artists has released a new EP The Brooklyn Sessions, vol 1. The 25-year-old Laura Izibor was born and raised in Dublin to an Irish-Nigerian family. I first fell in love with her music back in 2009 with her debut album Let the Truth Be Told, and I’ve been waiting for her to get back in the scene! She is currently working on a new album. In the meanwhile, we can enjoy three new songs from her!
Gracefully is a funky song with some reggae vibes. This song immediately made me dance. I love the song!
He’ll Never Know is another song that has some reggae influences in it. Another favorite of mine, I love her lyrics in the song. (In the song, she mentions Grafton Street, which in the center of Dublin, being a huge shopping street.)
Ring I think is ‘classic’ Laura. It has all the qualities of a hit! Somehow, I like the song the least out of the three.
Take a listen below, and let me know what you think!
