welcome to Laura Cox l Rockhal l 28.09.2021.
Half English, half French, 100% Rock’n’Roll – Laura Cox is exactly what she promises to be: a “Badass Rock’n’Roll Lady” who produces sounds with her guitar that make the world quake in a groundbreaking way. With this she has catapulted herself into the rankings of the greatest female guitarists, and is there seriously anything cooler than being mentioned in the same breath as Nancy Wilson (Heart), Nita Strauss (Alice Cooper), The Runaways or Joan Jett, just to name a few. With her powerful solos, catchy choruses and her unbridled voice, she has not only taken the internet by storm (380,000 YouTube subscribers, 90 million views!), but she has also been playing sold-out tours for several years.
The guitarist and singer has never denied that life as a female guitarist is very different from that of her male colleagues. She still never tires of mentioning that she doesn’t care about sex appeal in the least, but much more about her guitar!
It is this very attitude that has led to her debut album “Hard Blues Shot” (2017) selling over 10,000 copies in France in just a few months, gaining the highest recognition among her guitarists and guitarist colleagues, and a highly successful YouTube channel.
The new, 2nd album “Burning Bright”, released by Ear-Music on November 8, 2019, is “high voltage rock ‘n’ roll” in the style of AC/DC and Danko Jones meets Joan Jett, mixed with Southern and Blues influences. Therefore Laura herself defines her style as “Southern Hard Blues” – a mix of genres and bands she grew up with. “Burning Bright” was recorded at the legendary ICP Studios (Johnny Hallyday, The Cure, Vanessa Paradis, Solomon Burke). With a flawless backup band and a mastering of the great Howie Weinberg (Aerosmith, Oasis, The White Stripes) it’s packed with 10 blues, classic rock and hard rock bombs! This is also the opinion of the experts at the rock magazine eclipsed February 2020 issue, who voted their album to the 50th place of the best 100 albums for 2019. They also have 3 of their concerts on the list of the top concerts in 2019.
