In 2013 I posted an interview with a young, talented Australian guitarist and singer called Laura Wilde. She’d just released her debut album called “Sold My Soul”, had been touring with Ted Nugent and would soon be embarking on a UK tour. Seven years on, Laura has just released her second album, called “Charmed & Dangerous”. I arranged to speak to her via Skype and recorded an interview that you can hear on the Friday NI Rocks Show on 17th July. We chat about the new album, future plans, working on ‘The Voice’, dealing with the Covid outbreak and more. The Show is available on our MixCloud page - https://www.mixcloud.com/NIRocks/interview-with-laura-wilde-on-the-friday-ni-rocks-show-on-17th-july-2020/
