Esther Turner is a UK singer/songwriter based in Birmingham. Esther's musical influences come from a wide range of music she was surrounded by when she was growing up. She listened to everyone from Michael Jackson, Avril Lavigne, Joni Mitchell, Basement Jaxx, Tori Kelly to Jp Cooper -just to name a few.

To further grow as an artist, Esther Turner invested a huge amount of time into developing and refining her act. She taught herself to play the guitar, piano and the drums. She started writing her own songs and subsequently went on the road and started gigging as the artist she is today. The BBC have supported Esther Turner through her career so far. She was interviewed by Sunny and Shay on their show. Her music was also selected and played by BBC introducing.

In recent times, Esther supported Ed Sheeran. She also supported the Jacksons at the Isle of Man and would go on to open for Justin Bieber and Katy Perry on the Firestone stage. Esther Turner is currently working on an EP due for release this year.


With her clever lyricism, raw maturity and laidback pop with folky undertones, LAKY, previously known as Kyla Stroud, is sure to charm you. Taking inspiration from eclectic 70s and 80s music, including classics like Earth Wind and Fire, Joni Mitchell and even Dolly Parton, as well as more current names such as LP, Christine and The Queens and John Mayer, LAKY has created her very own sound and is about to explode on the scene. Keep your eyes peeled!
