About Laura Parkes...

Laura began her love of music from her father who was the top Jazz trumpet player for artists such as Shirley Bassey, Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Junior and the Four Tops. Her natural ear for music was definitely inherited and singing is what this lady was born to do..

Although Laura was born in the UK and started in the recording industry with Stallion records her career spanning over 18 years has taken her across the entire world.

From living in Greece, Morocco, Portugal, Gran-Canaria and Israel working in the top 5 star casinos Laura then went on to work for luxury cruise liners with credits including the Inaugural cast for Holland America cruise line - where she also was asked to support ‘The Texas Tenors” , Disney Magic cruise line and many years wowing audiences with shows for Princess Cruise line.

In-between she did find a bit of time to stop off in the UK…. Her west end credits include “ The Rat Pack” ( live ) proceeding onto the UK tour and the American tour . Laura also made an appearance with this show in Salzberg, Austria.

Laura’s motto as a singer is to touch your souls as an audience member. “ I am very blessed to enjoy my work and have this gift. But this gift isn’t for me its for you as the audience! If I can touch someone’s soul through my voice and tap into their emotions whether it be laughing or crying I have done my job!”

Laura is a crowd pleaser and her stage presence is second to none. Her shows effortlessly combine her uniquely powerful and dynamic voice along with her charming and warm personality and include a variety of music where there is something for everyone and a few surprises along the way.

Laura dedicates her performances in loving memory of her father.
