Nashville-based singer-songwriter Lauren Shera is set to make her NI debut alongside Belfast outfit Amidships this Sunday in Katy’s Bar Belfast. Laura’s DigSin debut Gold and Rust marks the distinguished national bow of a literally prodigious singer-songwriter who, having spent half of her young life as a professional musician, is now destined to capture the national spotlight. The album – her third, following two independently released titles – is Shera’s musical farewell to her home state of California. Amidships specialise in an infectious blend of atmospheric indie rock and have been compared to the likes of Grandaddy, Pixies, Phoenix, and Band of Horses. Amidships & Lauren Shera play Katy’s Bar for free from 8pm on Sunday 14th September.
