Laura Moody is a composer, cellist, vocalist, songwriter and theatre performer. Her solo work draws on the infinite possibilities available from her solo cello and voice to create emotive songs that inhabit a unique space between the avant-garde, classical music, pop and singer-songwriter traditions. Her debut solo album Acrobats was released in 2014 to major critical plaudits, and has since toured extensively in the UK and to major festivals. Other recent works include commissions from Phaedra Ensemble and Shakespeare’s Globe, and award-nominated scores for The Vaults theatre and BBC Radio 3. Parallelist — the result of her collaboration with sound artist Clay Gold — premiered at the 2017 Aldeburgh Festival and will tour in 2020. A long-standing member of acclaimed innovative string quartet The Elysian Quartet, other artists she has worked and performed with include Björk, Meredith Monk, Jocelyn Pook and Radiohead’s Philip Selway.
