About the artists
Laura Lucas is a Canadian-born, Australia-based artist with a passion for storytelling. Her music features introspective songwriting, delicate vocals, and dreamy instrumentation, combining elements of indie-folk with a warm, modern twist. Drawing comparisons to Lana Del Rey, Phoebe Bridgers, and Taylor Swift, Laura’s songs deeply resonate with listeners, expressing complex emotions. In relation “I Imagine You Are Happy”, she says that “this is one of my favourite songs I have written so far”
Lawson Hull, an Australian musician, humbly describes himself as an “Aussie take on Tom Petty, but half as good.” Despite his modesty, he possesses immense musical and lyrical talent. His music exudes warmth, atmosphere, and spaciousness, placing him among Australia’s finest contemporary indie-folk voices, akin to Angus and Julia Stone, Boy and Bear, and #1 Dads. On creating “I Imagine You Are Happy” Lawson says that “We kept it simple. Laura and I both have cozy, warm voices and we let them do their thing.”
Laura and Lawson are both gifted and introspective storytellers, each with a penchant for evoking nostalgia and warmth in their music. Laura’s debut EP, Light the Candle, Hold the Mirror was produced remotely between Canada and Australia, allowing her to express how both places have profoundly influenced her artistic journey. Similarly, Lawson’s EP, Mountain Days, was born during a period of isolation in nature, drawing inspiration from his memories of living on a small mountain in the serene Watagan Ranges of New South Wales.
In light of these similarities, their collaboration is only a natural and perfect fit. Their collaboration, “I Imagine You Are Happy,” marks the first time they have worked together.
We are so excited to have the video premiere of “I Imagine You Are Happy” below! It’s beautifully shot, with an intimacy that showcases some picturesque NSW coastline.
