Laura Izibor (The Kennedy Center)

Laura Izibor

"The foundation begins with soul," explains 20-year-old singer/songwriter/producer Laura Izibor of her passionate, piano-guided songs. On her forthcoming debut album, Izibor continues the lineage set out by artists like Lauryn Hill and Jill Scott; artists who combine a reverence for the traditions of early R&B with a thoroughly modern sensibility. After one listen to the powerful, honey-tinged vocals on Let The Truth Be Told, one thing is for sure. For Laura Izibor, it's got to be real.Born to a working class family in Dublin, Ireland, Izibor admits she didn't grow up in a musical household.
