About Laura Cannell

I am here to begin a new journey to expand my creative output. I am a professional musician, run a record label and I also write and make artwork. I tour quite a bit and release records too but I wanted to create a space where I could focus on all of the other aspects of my creativity.

Over the next 12 months I am writing a book. Yes, a book, I've been thinking about this for a while, and I am starting it now. This will feature writing inspired by my adventures as a musician, the landscape that I live in, my interactions with nature, and artwork inspired by these things.

I have been touring and performing for over ten years, and wanted to find a way to collate my thoughts and constant project ideas into one bigger project. A book is way for me to produce the ideas I have into tangible things. Like producing a CD, but something substantial that is stand alone or can be read alongside my music. I am hoping to capture some of the world which feed into the music, and the journeys which happen off stage, after the show, before the show and during the mysterious creative periods.

I live in the countryside, it can be bleak and inspiring in the same breath. Everyday is an adventure, and the details can disappear if I don't capture them in words, music or drawings. In my music I explore the spaces between traditional, medieval and experimental. This is how I like to think and explore everything else too. It's all there in front of us in detail, and in the gaps between.

My writing is about nature and landscape in relation to my life, it is the recording of moments in different ways. Music is transient, site specific, in the moment. I want to keep capturing the off stage sponteneous moments and share them with you.
 
I would love you to be part of the journey. Making, writing, composing and performing are everything to me, they are all intertwined and I want to share the parts which don't come out on an album, but that are essential.

Goals
$22 of $400 per month
This is my first goal. It would help towards the costs of living while I am creating new music, writing and making artwork. Sometimes the stress of money can get in the way of creativity, and although I am very happy working all hours, I think that it would be quite a different experience to have a bit more time and mental space to do it. 

It will help me to go and gather ideas and to buy the things I need to be creative... exciting things like, studio costs, violin strings, time, petrol, food, maybe a new chair or preferably a tall standing desk to work at.

This would all make me very happy and more ideas will get to be unleashed into the world through words, artwork and music.
Thank you for reading and for your patronage!
