Laura has supported Ed in Galway venue the Róisín Dubh and speaking about her famous first cousin she has said: “We see each other quite a lot, any time he’s in town. I’ve seen how that whole world operates through him and it’s so intense, I really don’t know how people do it. I used to cross collaborate with Ed a lot before he was signed."
