Jump aboard “The Soul Express" with Laura Zarb as she regales you with highly relatable tales and catchy, original tunes.

Have you ever drooled while concentrating too hard? Taught yourself to juggle to avoid studying? Or played Pokémon Go on your wedding night, because… #sexy?

Life, right? Full of distractions, complications and 1,001 reasons to procrastinate.

So come jump aboard The Soul Express with Laura Zarb, as she regales you with highly relatable tales, and catchy, original tunes. Following a sell-out 2019 Sydney Fringe debut, Laura is thrilled to be bringing her unique blend of wit, charm, and neuroses to Sydney audiences, as she shares her penchant for procrastination (and a good game of Candy Crush), her silent battles with old mate Anxiety, and her love of sequins, shimmies, and sing-a-longs.

Musician, singer, songwriter, candy crush enthusiast and freshly-minted producer, Laura has experienced life from the back of a van, used beachside showers to shave her legs, lived and performed in European mansions, and at times hidden away like a hermit to regroup, reinspire and discover Love… and that was before the lockdowns’.

Starting her career as a blues/folk artist, Laura performed at festivals such as The National Folk Festival, Sydney Blues & Roots and Blue Mountains Music Festival. She released her debut album Pink Plastic Spoon in 2013 and was awarded third place in the Australian Songwriters Association Awards in the folk category.

Laura’s most recent achievement includes writing and producing her debut cabaret – The Soul Express. She now spends her free time honing her craft and trying desperately not to succumb to the temptation of Instagram Reels, Candy Crush and wholesome British Reality TV.
