Laurel Arnell-Cullen, better known as just Laurel, is a Welsh-British chamber pop and indie musician from Southampton but since 2013 has been based in London. Laurel has got critical acclaim for writing, recording and producing all her music in her bedroom studio in London.

Career

Laurel first caught interest from music bloggers in 2013 when she posted a demo for her song Blue Blood in early 2013. She then followed by posting songs Mankind and Fire Breather. In mid 2013, she signed a record deal with Turn First Artists. Laurel released Fire Breather as her first official single, via her SoundCloud in 2013. Laurel released her debut EP, To The Hills, in 2014 via her own record label, Next Time Records. Laurel released her second EP in December 2014. In July 2015, Laurel released a finished version of her song Blue Blood.

In March 2016, Laurel released her first single from her debut album titled “Life Worth Living”. Unlike her previous work, it featured a strong indie rock influence with a leading electric guitar and live drums. In May 2016, she then dropped a second single titled “San Francisco”. This single earned her the place of Apple Music’s first Artist of the Week. In August 2016, Laurel announced she had signed to Counter Records, a division of Ninja Tune Records and that she would be going on her first headline UK tour in November, in support of her EP ‘Park’. Hurricane was released as the first single from ‘Park’ in September 2016 and gained a lot of buzz from music bloggers and indie radio stations.
