Line Up

She Makes War is the solo project of multi-instrumentalist producer and visual artist Laura Kidd.

Blending urgent indie rock with melancholy torch songs, SMW completed recording her fourth album this summer and since then has been busy recording guest vocals on The Levellers’ 30th anniversary album, taking part in a British Council cultural exchange in Indonesia and preparing for her fourth European tour by train.

“A fearless performer matching Marika Hackman’s edgier singer songwriter style with Wolf Alice at their most grungy” – Music Radar UK

“The emotional resonance of Elliott Smith colliding with the barbed vigour of Sleater-Kinney” – Gigwise

She Makes War has received press support from Clash Magazine, Rock Sound, Line Of Best Fit, DIY, The Quietus, Gigwise and Louder Than War, amongst others. Singles from her last album ‘Direction Of Travel’ received national airplay on 6Music (Marc Riley Steve Lamacq, Lauren Laverne, Tom Robinson, Gideon Coe), XFM (John Kennedy), Kerrang (Alex Baker) and Amazing Radio (Shell Zenner and Jim Gellaghtly) – in addition she was invited to play a live band session on Marc Riley’s 6 Music show.
