Laura J Martin hails from the suburbs of Liverpool with influences that ricochet between Serge Gainsbourg, Wu Tang Clan, David Bowie and Herbie Mann. Armed with flute, mandolin and loop station, she sings over her loops and beats, songs inspired by Japanese folkore to real life sentiments and characters. Whilst living in Japan in 2006, she was invited to take part in the Brownswood artists ‘Soil & Pimp’ sessions in Tokyo. On return to Britain, Laura joined Kidkanevil’s show performing at venues across Britain and Europe. She also appeared in several of his recordings including Kranium Rock.
