The music industry in the United Kingdom is currently blessed with some incredibly talented and independent female artists, all working hard to establish themselves in an industry where it was once deemed necessary to be a Disney princess first if you wanted to make it as an artist (Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, Ariana Grande anyone?). And not only is the UK blessed with these talents, but a fair few of them are based here in the south.
Lauran Hibberd is one such artist, gradually making her way to the top of the pile and showing everyone that raw talent alone is more than enough to get people to stand up and take notice. The Isle Of Wight native has already established herself on the festival circuit, playing at prestigious events like Bestival, Common People and Isle Of Wight Festival to name just a few, whilst also making regular appearances and being championed on our airwaves, with the likes of BBC 6 Music and Radio X giving her well-deserved airtime.
The 20 year old will be showcasing her impressive catalogue of catchy tunes at Southampton’s newest city centre venue, Heartbreakers, and will no doubt bring an energetic performance that her fans will be sure to appreciate. Be sure to head down to support an artist who will undoubtedly be heading on to far greater things in the very near future!
Lauran Hibberd plays Heartbreakers in Southampton on 5th July, with tickets available via this link and priced at £5.50.
