Track of the Day: Laura Wyatt – I Believed

Hailing from Colchester, Laura Wyatt is a talented singer-songwriter with experience that many new artists would give their left arm for. While she might have taken a 10-year hiatus from releasing original music, the UK-based musician is back with her powerful single ‘I Believed’. The first off her album Last Train Home, the country track will keep you dancing from start to finish. Are you ready for it? Let’s continue…

Reflective and insightful, ‘I Believe’ is an exploration of the last 10 years of Wyatt’s life. Touching on issues such as divorce and mental health, one would imagine a rather mournful ballad; however, Wyatt embraces her experiences with positivity and optimism. Influenced by Dolly Parton and KT Tunstall, the single is buoyant and cheerful filled with self-empowerment and self-belief. In other words, it’s a damn fine song making you feel like you can take on the world!

Incorporating drums, bass, saxophone and a trombone in the single takes ‘I Believe’ to another level with the instrumentation adding a true bounce to the track. While the melody is already infectious, it is Wyatt’s warm, rich vocals that add robustness to the song. Harmonic and moving with a refreshingly toe-tapping quality, ‘I Believe’ will have you spinning around singing at the top of your lungs with a stupid grin on your face.

“‘I Believed’ is a song about self-belief. Ignoring the voices in your head that tell you that you can’t. Defying small-town expectations. Standing up against your own limiting believes and manifesting something better in life by getting out of your own head, stopping the negative thought cycle and actually getting shit done.” – Laura Wyatt on ‘I Believe’
