Currently opening for legendary rocker TED NUGENT on his North American dates, LAURA WILDE will be Matt O'Shaughnesssy and Tony Gizzo's very special guest on WVOX.com's Metal Mayhem show this Tuesday, August 6th at 10:15pm Eastern exclusively on WVOX.com Worldwide and 1460 AM.
Laura Wilde is a 23 year old, driven by her obsessions. Her love of musical instruments and her fascination for old-style blues and rock music has resulted in her being invited to open for such artists as diverse as FUEL, SHINEDOWN and TED NUGENT. Originally from Melbourne Australia, her talent on both guitar and bass quickly made Laura a heavily sought after musician which led to work with a who’s who of Australian artists.
When she was 18 years old, Laura went out on her own 22 show tour, attended university, continued her session work, held down a job at a local guitar store and even played a private acoustic show for the Saudi Arabian royal family. At 19, she moved to Los Angeles, and began work on her debut album, Sold My Soul, which earned Laura great respect and strong reviews. Released in 2012, Sold My Soul, features Laura’s trademark brand of rock. With songs like “Irate”, “For You” and the title track and first single “Sold My Soul”, the album showcases Laura’s talents as both a singer and guitarist. Her playing style reflects the musical dexterity of many of her biggest influences, including SUZI QUATRO, SLASH, JIMI HENDRIX and JIMMY PAGE.
Laura will be entering the studio later this year and has some exciting guests scheduled to make an appearance. When their hectic touring schedules allow them both the time, she will be writing a song with Geezer Butler from BLACK SABBATH and is hoping he may even produce a track or two. She describes the title track of Sold My Soul as “a celebration of my coming to America and all of the amazing places I experienced while out on tour.”
With close to 50 dates across America booked for the summer of 2013, a good proportion of the country will get to see what many are already warmly embracing.
