Out on the Patio: How Laura Jean Turns ‘Crude and Sloppy’ Lyrics into a Beautiful Artform
After recently immersing herself in pop music, Australian singer Laura Jean tells Out on the Patio how she adapted a different state of mind to work with this genre (a departure from her folk background), using a big, sweeping scale and a delayed bass. She says that she left some of the lyrics unstudied: ‘I just let them be… some of them are crude and sloppy.’
Laura has an array of talents up her sleeve that she’s ready to put out there at any point; she’s a poetic, multi-talented musician, a performer and, after this interview, we think comedian.
A reassuring note from Laura is that she believes talent is obsolete: ‘As long as you have courage, you don’t need talent to get up on stage.’
