Laura Frank is a singer-songwriter from south-east Queensland who’s had quite a varied run-up to the launch of her first country music song, ‘Things I’d Rather Do’. She was a yodelling champion in Year Five, qualified as a tap dance teacher, owned a cafe and operated a mixed martial arts gym. And while she was recording ‘Things I’d Rather Do’ she was building her own house. On the music side of things she played in the duo Bamford Cook, spent three years in musical theatre, and has supported a range of artists including Sarah McLeod and Tones and I.
‘Things I’d Rather Do’ is a funny yet reflective song about life’s long to-do list – and the distractions that get in the way of ticking things off it. Frank says she hopes the track sparks some kind of emotion, ‘whether that be joy, sadness or excitement. I guess the worst response would be the feeling of indifference – I’d rather people hate the tunes than not think anything of them.’
The song was produced by ARIA and Golden Guitar winner Jordan Power. The video for ‘Things I’d Rather Do’ makes its premiere on this site today – and you can see it below.
