Speaking about the tour, Laurence enthuses “I’m very excited to be playing a short run of UK before heading out on the road supporting Status Quo for 2 dates at The Kelvingrove Bandstand. My Power trio will be visiting Faversham, Pontardawe, Chislehurst, Lyme Regis, St Helens, Sedgefield, Leicester, Cranleigh & Carlisle. See you on the road”! LJ

“The British blues rock guitarist rocks the riffs on his new album in which he skilfully combines energy & feeling” – Rolling Stone Magazine

During lockdown, Laurence re-discovered his love of Robin Trower’s guitar playing. It also reignited his passion for the power trio format. The new album and band line up echoes to the sounds of Gary Moore and Jimi Hendrix. And more contemporary influences such as Queens of The Stone Age, Jack White, and Royal Blood. For Laurence, every performance matters due to his battle with Crohn’s disease. He lives each day to the fullest, and it shows in his music. Expect killer riffs, blistering solos, and a raw energy that’s impossible to resist. Don’t miss this jaw-dropping experience!
