A&R Factory

Hampshire, UK-based singer-songwriter Laura Loh has boldly moved into new pop territory with her self-recorded and produced mental health advocacy single, Closer, which was officially released on May 20th.

Through the classically-trained artist's motivation to provide strength through music, the therapeutic single was penned to inspire hope in listeners embarking on their recovery journey. Delivering the nuanced reminder that not every day is a finish line day.

There's a finely tuned balance between the delicacy of the deeply empathetic vocals and the heavy drums that bring resilience to the organ & classical strings filled single. Mixed and mastered by Luke Done.

Laura Loh said:

"Closer is a song about recovery and personal growth, inspired by my experience with mental health; it is a reminder that it is okay to fall down and take your time picking yourself back up.

We all tend to be too hard on ourselves; I hope this song can encourage people to celebrate the progress they make every day, no matter how small.”

Amelia Vandergast, Executive Editor at A&R Factory said:

“The cleverly compassionate single implants striking optimistic context within the utterance of the word closer while affirming that Loh was more than ready to step into her own as a producer. We can’t wait to see where this expressively emboldening path takes her.”


Laura Loh is a Hampshire, UK-based singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer with a background in classical and jazz music and an inclination towards alt-pop and alt-folk.

Being born into a musical family, she classically trained in singing, piano, and violin at a young age. At 13, she picked up a guitar and started writing songs. Her official debut came in the form of her EP, Sunrise, in 2020; two standout singles were swiftly selected for the BBC introducing Tracks of the Day List. Away from the airwaves, Laura has also played Weyfest, Westival and ValeFest, and graced Abbey Road studios with her vocals.

In March 2022, Laura released her single Morning Light, an optimistic blend of alt-pop and folk. In addition to the songwriting, Loh weighed in on production with her co-producer and frequent collaborator, Joe Wright, at Hillside Studio. Morning Light was the start of a new era for Loh; the inspirational track was enough to inspire a markable shift in genre, style and boldness to produce her own soulfully infused sound.
