Emerging talent Laura White is fresh from releasing her stunning debut EP ‘What My Mother Taught Me’. The four tracks showcase Laura’s incredible, soulful voice and their Motown stirrings will silence anyone who says they don’t make them like the used to. Laura first came to people’s attention as one of the finalists on X Factor in 2008 and there was outrage when she was eliminated from the show. There were calls for the resignation of Louis Walsh who used his casting vote to eliminate her in what was deemed a strategic move and the debacle was even discussed in parliament. Amongst her many supporters were Adele, Lilly Allen, Leona Lewis and Mariah Carey.
