I have to be honest I didn’t have high hopes for an album labeled as ‘folk-pop’ but I should be punished for being so ignorant as the amazing album ‘Don’t Ignore Me’ by the gorgeous Laura Comfort has had me hooked. Despite being compared to artists such as Kelly Clarkson and Taylor Swift, Laura manages to deliver something refreshingly new and diverse with her stunning 3rd album. The complete uniqueness to Laura’s voice only adds to the absolute beauty of each song and I already have favorites such as ‘Cherry Lips’ and ‘I’m No Barbie’. However, I still feel unfair saying I like any more than the next as no song sounds the same, a quality which is rare to find in some artists but Laura proves to manage it with ease. There is emotion in the lyrics, heartfelt melodies within the songs themselves and given the versatility and variation with each track you will struggle not to have this album on permanent repeat. Opening with a upbeat, more ‘pop’ mood with ‘Angelina Jolie’ and moving to a wonderfully melodious feel with the strikingly heartfelt ballad ‘It Hurts’ and back to a positive vibe once again with ‘I’m Going Crazy’ you are given the feeling of being taken on Laura’s own emotional journey while listening to this gem. With charming vocals and incredible talent displayed with both electric and acoustic guitar I cannot praise it enough and I sincerely hope you learn from my lesson and give it a shot, ‘Don’t Ignore Me’ by Laura Comfort released February 12th.
