Laura Cannell draws on the emotional influences of the landscape and the sometimes-dissonant chords of early and medieval music. With deconstructed violin bow and the extraordinary sound of double recorders, her music has grown out of unearthed fragments that became improvised pieces. Laura’s music encompasses both wild animal calls and long forgotten liturgical fragments, which seem to originate from the same, ahistorical place. With a background in medieval, traditional and experimental music, she creates a solitary minimalist chamber music, where one player makes all the harmonies.

Laura has appeared on BBC Radio 3, 4 and 6Music including a Maida Vale session for Late Junction, live in concert for The Early Music Show and Hear & Now, live on In Tune as well as interviews and programme contributions to 6Music’s Freak Zone with Stuart Maconie. She regularly performs in the UK and Europe and both of her highly acclaimed solo albums have been in The Wire Magazine’s Top 50 albums of the year (Quick Sparrows Over the Black Earth – 2014 & Beneath Swooping Talons – 2015). Beneath Swooping Talons was also featured in The Guardian’s Top 5 Experimental albums of 2015 and was No.3 in the MOJO underground Albums of the Year.
