Laura Izibor Debuts Let The Truth Be Told Today, Tours With Maxwell Tomorrow

“The foundation begins with soul,” explains 21-year-old singer/songwriter/producer Laura Izibor of her passionate, piano-guided songs on Let The Truth Be Told. On her debut album out today, Izibor continues the lineage set out by artists like Lauryn Hill and Jill Scott; artists who combine a reverence for the traditions of early R&B with a thoroughly modern sensibility.

Born to a working class family in Dublin, Ireland, Izibor, who is affectionately referred to as “The Soul of Ireland” says of her debut, “the title felt like a strong, almost biblical statement,” continuing, “I’ve written this album because it’s my truth. It’s a sincere record and it has a feel of survival in it as well.”

The songs are ripe with authenticity, from the sassy, soulful album opener, “Shine,” to the magnificent and deeply personal “If Tonight Is My Last,” to the anthemic and inspirational “Mmm,” which colored the soundtrack of Step Up 2: The Streets. After one listen to the powerful, honey-tinged vocals on Let The Truth Be Told, one thing is for sure. For Laura Izibor, it’s got to be real.
