New Releases For Laura Cantrell

Laura Cantrell Live At The BBC

LAURA CANTRELL WEBOn Air Performances and Recordings – 2000-2005

Spit & Polish, released April 29, 2016

Includes 10 songs recorded for Radio 1’s John Peel and 2 recorded with Radio 2’s Bob Harris

Not The Tremblin’ Kind

Spit & Polish, re-released April 29, 2016

“Laura Cantrell At The BBC” and “Not The Trembling’ Kind” are both being released on vinyl for the first time on Record Store Day, 16th April 2016.

Over the past 16 years, Laura Cantrell has been a familiar presence on the U.K. music scene. The Nashville-born, New York-based artist has developed a loyal audience through consistent touring, and numerous radio interviews and sessions for BBC Radio 1, 2, 3, 4 and 6 Music, most notably with Bob Harris and the late John Peel, who famously championed her debut album, Not The Tremblin’ Kind, and described it as, “My favourite album of the last ten years and possibly my life”

Her new release, Laura Cantrell At The BBC compiles the best of her UK radio performances from 2000-2005, including several previously unreleased songs, and traces the arc of Cantrell’s rise as an Americana artist on the airwaves of the venerable British Broadcasting Corporation.

In 2000, Laura Cantrell released her debut album, Not The Tremblin’ Kind on Shoeshine/Spit and Polish, an indie label based in Glasgow

Laura plays a seated show in The 02 ABC on Sunday the 8th May, with Mary Jean Lewis. Tickets available here:- Book online
