Welsh singer- songwriter Laura Evans announces the release of upcoming single Take Me Back Home and shines a little bit of Nashville on her hometown. This will be the 4th single taken from her EP “Running Back to You” (released July 2020) It was quite an astounding year for Welsh, Nashville loving songstress Laura Evans with the release of her debut EP that saw her truly making her mark on the country/blues scene. Laura’s first single from the EP charted straight at number one on the UK blues chart and peaked at 43 on the US blues chart as well as follow up singles “Drag Me back In” & “Solo” following suit, acquiring several Spotify & Apple music editorial playlists including ‘Nu-Blue’ curated by Heidi Shenk, alongside US artists like Larkin Poe and Dave Stewart ‘Very Nearly Nashville’ and Apple Music’s ‘New In Country’ playlist alongside Taylor Swift & Eric Church. The EP racked up thousands of streams in the first week of release resulting in this latest single being acquired and distributed worldwide by U-NXT c/o Universal Music.

Laura Co-wrote this song on her last trip to Nashville with writers Tim Lee Jones & Leroy Powell of successful Americana band ‘Whiskey Wolves of the West’

“I was so excited to write with Tim” Laura says, “He had written one of my favourite songs by Shelly Fairchild called ‘Mississippi Turnpike’ so when we all got in a room together, we started talking about my hometown and where I grew up. We laughed as I explained I’m from a very very small town the South Wales valleys called ‘Aberdare’ talked about what it was like growing up there and then a few hours later the song was written! It was very important that the song had a country soulful feel about it and lyrics people could relate to, I’m so excited to incorporate my welsh roots into a country song. I hope people will connect with it.”

Born in the valleys of south Wales, Laura’s love of country, soul and blues music started very early when she listened to old records by Fleetwood Mac, the Eagles, Bonnie Rait, Faith Hill and more. Laura frequently travels to Los Angeles and Nashville to write and on her last trip there performed at the Bluebird Café. She has opened up for The Shires in concert and performed at the C2C Country 2 Country Music festival at the 02. Following the release of her 5 track Ep in July the debut title track ‘Running Back to You’ charted and went straight to Number One in the UK iTunes Blues chart. The single also entered the US Blues Chart, peaking at Number 43.

Her 2nd & 3rd singles ‘Drag me Back In’ and “SOLO” followed suit and have been getting well-deserved radio play & earned huge praise from BBC Radio Wales after all being added to the BBC Welsh A-LIST as well as airplay on Planet Rock, Chris Country Radio & Country Hits Radio. Laura has had huge success and support from Spotify after being added to several of their editorial playlists, including ‘Nu-Blue’ curated by Heidi Shenk, alongside US artists like Larkin Poe and Dave Stewart ‘Very Nearly Nashville’ and Apple Music’s ‘New In Country’ playlist alongside Taylor Swift & Eric Church
