Three Minutes With…Laura Wilde
Described by the Jimmy Star Show as “the talking swagger of a Blondie with the guitar licks of a Lita Ford”, and reminiscent of a young Doro Pesch, Australian singer Laura Wilde can definitely NOT be taken as merely window dressing, a fate that frequently (often incorrectly) befalls many women in music. One song into her set and she proves to even the most skeptical she can rock just as hard as the boys do! Laura was kind enough to give me “Three Minutes…” after she opened for the Sin City Sinners here in Las Vegas while on a mini tour of the Southwest.
Your question is – is there one song that defines who you are? And it doesn’t necessarily have to be one of your own.
Hmmm.. That’s a toughie. “Sold My Soul” That’s actually the title of my album. I don’t want to be one of those self-promoting people, but…..
Why not? That’s what this is all about!
Well, there you go! It’s the title of my album, it’s “Sold My Soul to Rock N Roll”, the main chorus of the song, it kind of defines me, really.
And that’s your own original song?
Yes. I wrote that one, in about July. I’ve got the “Sold My Soul” video coming out soon, and the album’s coming out on the 31st of January. Check out my website.
And you covered both things in one shot!
The video, it’s just me, stripped down, who I am. So, it’s all coming soon, and you’ll find out who I am.
