In this Music Monday Blog, we are going to get a music from a young lady, who is Laura Wilde. This is her first record which is Sold My Soul. She finally made her first appearance in the United States. I had the honor of meeting her after a killer show outside of Detroit. There is not much history on this up and coming artist. She comes from the land down under which is Australia. She loves Jimmy Page, Jimi Hendrix, Slash, and many more. She will be heading back into the studio to work with legendary bass player and my hero Geezer Bulter from Black Sabbath. Being a Bass Player and lyric writer, Mr. Bulter is the best in the world. She will be in good hands. Let us get into the music.
The first track is short and to the point. It is sounds of motorcycles.
“All Alone” starts out with a nice solid drum beat with a nice great guitar riff. I really enjoyed the singing from Laura with some great lyrics. Her singing reminds me of Lita Ford, lead singers from Otep and Flyleaf. This is a pretty solid track for being the real opening track of the record.
Sold My Soul
“Sold My Soul” is one of the first singles off this record and one of two music videos recorded off “Sold My Soul.” I love the start from the guitar and the simple drum beat and bass line at the beginning and also throughout the song. This is a pretty solid song from start to finish. It has an awesome guitar and great drumming beat. I love the lyrics and some nice singing from Laura. This is a great driving song like the opening song. I love the pace of this song and the record so far.
I love the bass and drum action at the beginning of the song. She reminds me so much of Lita Ford from the singing and her song writing to this point of her record. There is some awesome music and well written lyrics. I love the guitar break towards the middle of the song. Laura Wilde is a great singer and I believe she does not need back up singers.
I love the effect of the heavy overdrive on her guitar. I love the lyrics and she is singing pretty good on this song. The organ playing is a perfect fit on this song. She is the queen of driving songs. They have a nice flow and great pace. This is a song that will give me a few speed tickets. I love the ending of the song.
Here is a classic hard rock guitar riff at the beginning of the song. I love the drop off and the groove from the music while she is singing over the top of it. I am really not a fan of the lyrics and her singing but it works and fits for the song. I might not like it that does not mean it is bad. I might have to listen to this song a few more times for it to grow on me. It might not happen. It is a pretty solid ending to “Back Seat.”
I love the music at the beginning of the song. There is some solid lyrics and her singing. There is some good music here and it is pretty solid. I know I say she does not need a singer but it fits on this song. She might be an above average singer but it is her doing the back up singing. I love the back up vocals. This is a great song. This should be the next single off this record. I love the guitar break towards the end of the song. I love the ending of the song.
I love rhythm and the pace of the music. She is singing great and has some great lyrics on “Anything Goes.” I love the guitar break to the guitar solo at the middle of the song. The guitar solo is not forced like most guitar solos. I have noticed one thing throughout this record that the music she wrote some melody to blend nicely with it along with her voice. I love the ending of this song.
Classical Guitar Star
I love the guitar work and it should be with any song that has “Classic Guitar” or “Rock Star” in the title. I am really enjoying her singing and it is great. I believe this song is the best singing performance from Laura Wilde on this record. I will be honest. I am not a fan of the lyrics but she put some thought, feeling, and a theme behind them on “Classic Guitar Star.” I love the guitar solo towards the end of the song. There is some great effects on her guitar. This band has done a great job on the music on this song.
I love the pick up of back half of the record and the pace on this song on “Nothing Back.” There is some nice guitar, drums, and bass work on this song. There is some awesome music. This song is in your face which is perfected. I am enjoying the singing and the lyric writing that she has put forth.
There is a nice heavy guitar with a nice solo over the time at the beginning of the song. I love the singing and nice lyrics. She is singing really well on this song. There is a nice guitar break towards the middle of the song. The music is great and there is nice playing from the drummer and the bass player. There is a nice fade out ending to this song.
I love the bass line with some great singing at the beginning of the song. I love the lyrics and the singing from Laura. I like how she put some focus on the bassist and the drummer on this song. There is a nice guitar solo towards the end of the song. I love the fade out at the end of the song.
Here is the band’s website and twitter addresses:
The end, this is some great music on her first record. Laura Wilde is an upcoming artist with a promising future in hard rock and metal world. She is a solid guitar player with a thought of where to take her music. She brings life back to girls rocking in the music scene. She is a lady you do not want to mess with but she is very sweet when she needs to be in her music. I had the honor to watch her play outside of Detroit. I have to say I was pretty impressive. She put on a hell of show. I have to say two things. I highly recommend you checking her out and move over Lita Ford. Laura Wilde is here to rock us just like Lita. It would be kind neat if Laura and Lita get together and write some music. I am looking forward to her new music in the next year. I want to say thank her for signing your record and take a photo with me. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
