5579Laura Vane is one of the most unique and refreshing soul voices to come out of the UK in the past 10 years. As a published singer/songwriter based in the South of England, she has worked in many different music projects to date. Laura started singing and writing her own material 8 years ago and has written 4 albums, covering pop, electronica, soul, funk, house and r&b, and has enjoyed many releases over the past couple of years. Her voice has been described as Etta James meets Janis Joplin, as she has a natural raw and textured edge.

Most recently Laura has been recording and performing backing vocals for chart-topping acts such as Gnarls Barkley and The Streets, and she is looking forward to releasing more of her own work including collaborations with other well regarded artists and producers. Over the past 18 months Laura has been concentrating on collaborations with artists such as Robbie Rivera (One Eye Shut), MJ Cole (Watertight), Hint, Diesler, Nick Fyffe (Jamiroquai) and has had releases through well respected labels such as Soulfuric, Device, Prolific, Tru Thoughts, Wah Wah 45 and Ink records. But right now her main focus is her own album “Laura Vane & The Vipertones” on SocialBeats / Unique Records.

Drawn together from both sides of the North Sea, Laura Vane & The Vipertones consists of musicians from various Dutch and UK projects pooling their respective skills for this funk and soul group. From Holland, and more precisely Dordrecht in the South-Eeast of the country, Phil Martin and Ton Van Der Kolk – also known as producer duo AIFF – provide their instrumental talents, developing the grooves and beats fired over the internet from the northern UK town of Burnley by Jonathan ‘Diesler’ Radford. Finally Laura Vane provides the sweet vocals and imaginative lyrics to the project. They have completed their debut LP with many e-mails, skype talks, and recording sessions in Holland, to be finally released to the world in August.
