Laura Imbruglia – Scott Mercer
Live at The Bearded Lady, West End, 10 May 2019
Melbourne-based singer-songwriter Laura Imbruglia began on her path in music with the release of the witty, folky EP “It Makes A Crunchy Noise” in 2003. Since then her music has taken elements from many genres including alt-country, indie-pop, punk-rock and shoegaze, all the while retaining her particular dry sense of humour from her self-titled debut in 2006 to “The Lighter Side of…” in 2010 and “What A Treat” in 2013.
Since then she has produced two seasons of the variety webseries Amateur Hour, featuring all manner of segments such as artist interviews, music, comedy skits and cooking tips.
In late 2017 Imbruglia was selected for a Bundanon Trust songwriting residency in rural New South Wales, where she wrote the majority of what would become her fourth album, “Scared Of You”. It was at the Brisbane launch of that album that this set was recorded.
