LAURA & SUSIE
Laura & Susie are a sister duo from Sydney whose songs are influenced strongly by the Celtic and Americana folk music from their childhood.
Laura Bishop (Bmus, Composition, Sydney Conservatorium of Music) writes complex, story-telling piano compositions that are eccentric and witty in their musical and lyrical themes, influenced by artists like Tori Amos, Regina Spektor and Joanna Newsom. The expansive soundscapes of her vivid compositional style complement the spellbinding simplicity of the songs of Susie Bishop (Mmus, Opera, Royal Northern College of Music, UK). Susie’s songs are delicately fingerpicked on guitar with her pure vocals blending in themes of love, life and nostalgia, inspired by great songstresses such as Joni Mitchell, Kate Rusby and Kate Bush.
Accordion, piano, violin and guitar create the backdrop for beautiful harmonies that weave together flavours of jazz, roots, Appalachian folk and more eclectic styles.
She melds vocal stylings from RnB & Soul, lyrical influence from story-telling and guitar from both Folk, Jazz & Soul, to meticulously create her unique and memorable sound.
