Thank you for getting me this far! WOW WOW

I am so excited to make this tour happen :-) 

With extra funds I will be able to:
- Pay a team member to travel with me and support me on tour, which will make the tour smooth sailing in every way
- Dedicate more time to make amazing videos and artwork to spread the word about the tour
- Buy the BEST equipment for touring and content creation 


Hello! My name is Laura Lamn.

Last year I released my debut album LOVE ALWAYS WINS. That was a big dream to achieve and I'm so grateful for all the support that got me here. It's now time for the next, even bigger, dream...I am going on tour! This tour will be the launch of my live music business, and the start of an ongoing career of touring and teaching. I want to make my side-hustle my main-hustle :-) 

After years of practice I am now ready! I can't wait for the next part of the adventure to unfold. Pledge now and bring LOVE ALWAYS WINS to the UK...

ABOUT Laura Lamn + LOVE ALWAYS WINS

Laura Lamn is a musician, poet, artist, dancer, writer and adventurous spirit. She is an unstoppable whirlwind of creativity, dedicated and devoted to inspiring others and spreading joy.

In 2017 an episode of mental and physical illness came knocking and Laura knew it was time to change. She was called to go on a radical healing journey! She was led down a yellow brick road of transformational life-altering experiences, which healed her mind, body and soul and reignited her creative passion.

ABOUT The Tour

I will visit 7 cities in the month of May bringing my Live Music and my Voice and Song Workshop nationwide. 

LIVE SHOW Live acoustic show of my album LOVE ALWAYS WINS which tells the story of my healing journey

WORKSHOP Voice and Song Workshop - Learn how to connect to your voice and your songs in an authentic heart centred way. No experience necessary. This workshop is designed to restore and rejuvenate your creative spirit.

MAGAZINE - I am going to design and make a Tour Magazine - drawings, poems, lyrics and more that tell the story

ABOUT The Mission

Do you know what I see the biggest problem with mental illness is? SHAME

When you feel mentally unwell you feel VERY ashamed. I remember feeling so embarassed, completely trapped, and my mind became a prison. There is still a lot of misunderstanding and stigma. I'm here to say it's OK not to be OK and to share my inspiring story of recovery.

HOW IS THE MONEY BEING SPENT?

The funds raised will be used to effectively promote, organise and manage this tour to launch my music business.

PR - Working with a carefully selected PR company to create a campaign using radio, press and social media

TRAVEL COSTS - Travel and accommodation costs for the tour

CREATIVE CONTENT - Creating videos and artwork for tour promotion

EQUPIMENT - Necessary equipment for performing live and content creation

REWARDS

There are a lovely selection of rewards to choose from. You can buy a ticket to the show or the workshop and there's more merch and goodies...

Love Always Wins Tee + Limited Edition Amazing Poster A4

OTHER WAYS TO SUPPORT 

VENUES? Do you know about venues? I’d love venue recommendations - I want to perform and run workshops in cosy and welcoming spots

STREET TEAM? - Word of mouth is my most effective marketing tool, share this video on social media and with friends and family - or would you like to help by putting up some posters in your local area - drop me a line hello@lauralamn.com

ONGOING BUSINESS 

This tour is the start of something much bigger - an ongoing career in music. I have spent time carefully crafting a longer term vision following the tour, with a documented 5-year business plan. This work will be centred around two live tours a year.. From this firm foundation I will build other events and projects to make my music hobby into a music business!

The UK has a poor gender parity for business. For every 10 male UK entrepreneurs, there are fewer than five female entrepreneurs. This needs to change...

I am inspired to step up as a female led business and to start to balance the gender gap :-)

CAN I DO THIS?

I am a Natural Born Artist. I have been devoted to creativity for as long as I can remember. At 4 years old my drawing was selected for my nursery Schools t-shirt logo. At 11 years old I was the lead in the school play. At 21 years I started an Art business and sold my paintings which included selling two pieces  to Bernie Ecclestone (founder of Formula 1). At 24 years I joined a hula hoop dance troupe, performed at the Olympics, and won a Guiness World Record. And then... I got the music bug and now I am dedicated to launching my music business. 

Hustling is in my blood. Both my parents had a business mindset and I was taught from a young age. My Mum and Dad ran an antiques business and their entrepreneurial spirit rubbed off on me. 

This winning combination  of creativity and business skills is the reason I have been able to create amazing work so far.  These natural talents, combined with my work ethic guarantee my future success in my music business.
