Graduate Laura tipped for the top by Jools Holland

A recent graduate from City of Bath College performed her new single on Later… with Jools Holland.

Laura Doggett, who completed a level three extended diploma in music at the college in 2012, performed her latest single, Moonshine, on Mr Holland’s famous grand piano after he described her as his “new tip for the top”.

While the pre-recorded show was being screened on Friday (November 7), Laura tweeted: “I’m watching myself on TV and I don’t know what on earth is going on. It’s sinking in how crazy it was. @BBCLater Thank you for having me x.”

Moonshine is the second single Laura has released through record label Sony.

It has received more than 100,000 plays on Soundcloud, made BBC Radio 1’s playlist and has been played by DJs Scott Mills and Ferne Cotton.

Laura recently supported Brit award-winning singer John Newman on tour and won the Glastonbury Emerging Talent competition in 2011.

City of Bath College music course leader Clive Stocker said: “Laura was a really great student.

“She worked so hard in all areas of the course.

“She was always writing and performing, week in and week out, that was just the way she was, very determined.

“We’re so proud of everything she’s achieved and know that she thoroughly deserves every success. She is always friendly and has time for everyone.”
