Watch List: Laura Reed - Wake Up
Laura Reed wants us to “wake up” and with a voice like hers it would be silly to sleep on her talent. Born in South Africa, raised in North Carolina, her sound is a mixture between pop and R&B soul, think Erykah Badu. She is inspired by artist like Lauryn Hill, Bob Marley and Aretha Franklin to name of a few. Her new single “Wake Up” (on iTunes) is getting quite the buzz around town. Not only will it be featured in upcoming movie “Inevitable Defeat of Mr. and Pete", which stars Alicia Keys, but it was recently featured on an episode of VH1’s Hollywood Exes. So familiarize yourself with Reed, she just may keep you awake, if you’re a lover of raw music talent already.
