Laura Cox, the French guitar prodigy and rock sensation, delivered a stunning performance at the Rockpalast Crossroads Festival in Bonn, Germany, on October 17, 2020. The festival, which showcases emerging and established rock and blues artists, was the perfect stage for Cox and her band to showcase their talent and energy.
Cox, who started playing guitar at the age of 14 and gained fame through her YouTube videos, has released two albums: Hard Blues Shot (2017) and Burning Bright (2019). Her style blends influences from country, hard rock, blues, and southern rock, creating a unique and powerful sound that captivates audiences.
The concert featured songs from both albums, such as Hard Blues Shot, Bad Luck Blues, Fire Fire, and Too Nice for Rock n Roll. Cox also paid tribute to some of her idols, such as AC/DC, ZZ Top, and Lynyrd Skynyrd, with covers of Highway to Hell, La Grange, and Sweet Home Alabama. The crowd was thrilled by her virtuosity, charisma, and passion, and cheered and sang along throughout the show.
Cox was accompanied by her talented bandmates: Mathieu Albiac on rhythm guitar, François C. Delacoudre on bass, and Antonin Guérin on drums. The four musicians displayed great chemistry and harmony, and delivered a tight and dynamic performance. They also interacted with the audience and expressed their gratitude and joy for being able to play live music again after the lockdown.
