“There’s nothing cerebral about it, it’s just banging away.” (Eclipsed)

The album is a roller coaster ride. Right from the start it bristles with power, breathes through quiet Southern Rock ballads, makes detours to bluesy and atmospheric songs and never takes its foot off the gas. Each song shows unexpected depth and progression, yet Laura Cox never loses the ease and strength of rock.

Created in the turmoil of the pandemic, “Head Above Water” defines keeping your head above water, maturing, yet never losing yourself. Eleven songs that sail through Americana and the origins and footholds of rock with a simplicity that all have one thing in common: Laura Cox’s incredible guitar work and vocal mastery.

This, her third studio album, is the perfect progression of her career and musically the most significant of her work to date. Following “Burning Bright” and its reference to fire, a new element now plays an important role.

“I wrote the album mostly by the ocean during the lockdowns, so I liked the idea of having a water-related theme.” (Laura Cox)

With this album, an exceptional guitarist proves she is so much more and finally sheds the label “newcomer.”
