'FORGOTTEN TOWN' - LAURA-THERESE DAVIS
Laura-Therese Davis is a singer, songwriter, trained pianist and self-taught guitarist from the Northern Rivers of NSW. Her connection to the land and love of horses have helped bring her to country music. Born in Sydney with a spirit raised in the country, Laura packed up her horses, Bonnie and Polo, and moved north to a property near Maclean NSW in 2015. This is where the inspiration for her debut country recordings have transpired.
Drovers, cattle stations, and farms light up the Davis family-tree. Whereas for Laura, creating and performing music has always been something she loved. The singer-songwriter has been performing since she was four years old. Over the years, Laura-Therese has been involved with musical theatre and shows, the extras and commercial acting scene also attending ATYP (Australian Theatre For Young People). She began performing on the live music circuit in Sydney at 17 and has played inner-city bars, country pubs to the Sydney Opera House and everything in between.
Drawing inspiration from a broad range of musical greats such as Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton, Glen Campbell, Wanda Jackson, KD Lang and Paul Kelly, Laura-Therese comments, “I take inspiration from great songwriters, lyricists and story tellers”. All the family on her dad’s side are big country music fans. They all grew up in the country and most of them still live on the land.
When asked about the type of music she wants to share, Laura-Therese muses, “I want to write songs about things that matter. I live on a property in the country, surrounded by cattle, cane fields and farmers, people who really “live off the land”. I see the comparisons between city and country and how tough it is in the country, yet country folk will help anyone anytime, it’s just the way it is out here. I don’t belong in the city, I belong in the country and I finally feel like I’m home”.
Laura-Therese’s debut single is an autobiographical tale of a new highway being built near her hometown. While the song’s author lives in Maclean, New South Wales this story could be about so many towns; it’s the same sad tale. With roadwork ten minutes from her home, everyday Laura would drive past and see the beautiful landscape literally changing before her eyes. The song begins with lap steel guitar and the haunting tone sets the scene for ‘Forgotten Town’.
They’re building a highway on the edge of town, rolling up sleeves, tearing it down.
Tar in the field, instead of sugarcane, rust in the river, what will remain?
