Review: Laura Izibor brings real soul to Foxboro


In support of her debut album Let The Truth Be Told, soul singer Laura Izibor hit the stage at Wednesday November 4 at Foxboro’s Showcase Live. The Irish born Izibor used her hour set to display real musicianship and soulful vocals in a stunning fashion. With a 4 piece band and herself on keys, she brought a smooth energy that made Showcase Live feel more like Wally’s Café. Less a belter than a Mary J Blige, Laura’s absolutely beautiful voice has a rich 60’s soul vibe to it. But don’t let the throwback feel of songs like “Shine” or “Mmm” fool you. She is very much a child of her generation. Coming from behind her keyboard she transformed her “From My Heart To Yours” into Mary’s “Real Love” seamlessly. The near sold out crowd in this intimate setting should count themselves as lucky. With performances and material like this it won’t be long before she is playing much bigger venues.
