Born in the valleys of south Wales, Laura Evans’ love of country, soul and blues music started early when she listened to old records by Fleetwood Mac, the Eagles, Bonnie Raitt, and Faith Hill.

Laura has had tremendous success from Spotify Nu-Blue playlist, alongside Larkin Poe, plus Apple Music's New in Country playlist alongside Taylor Swift and Eric Church. Her debut album State of Mind will be released on Friday 1st July 2022.

Robert Jon & The Wreck’s tour announcement follows the band’s new single Waiting For Your Man – recently released on blues rock titan Joe Bonamassa’s label KTBA Records.

The single is available to stream here: https://bit.ly/wfymsingle .

The music video for the new single is available to watch on YouTube via https://bit.ly/watchwaitingforyourman.

“We wanted a change of pace and something we can get done quickly,” says the band’s lead singer and guitarist, Robert Jon Burrison about the new single, Waiting For Your Man.   

Alex Pasco (Foo Fighters, Paul McCartney) was a blast to work. It was rough to get everything done so quickly. Waiting For Your Man was recorded in one day. There is something about knowing what needs to get done that pushes us to play better and not overthink things. Andrew had ideas flying in for arrangements at the last minute. Henry had ideas for the solos. Everyone nailed it in the studio.”

Robert Jon & The Wreck come from a highly influenced rock and roll background. With Waiting For Your Man, they wanted to inject a bit more of a rock and roll feel and energy. The new single is very riff based and is a result of the band jamming together in one room. The new song came about naturally, felt familiar, and gave them a feeling of nostalgia.”

"Waiting for Your Man is the simple song about going through the peaks and valleys of any relationship,” says Robert Jon. “Both sides have their issues with one and other, but they want to give each other a chance. Sometimes it is easy to throw away what could have been something great.”

The 2022 UK tour follows the release of the band’s critically acclaimed new studio album Shine A Light On Me Brother. The album features the singles Shine A Light On Me Brother and Everyday that received airplay on UK rock radio including Planet Rock, BBC Radio 2, The Max, Total Rock, MMH Radio, ERB Radio, and Radio Caroline.
