In a noisy online world, our attention is priceless. I'm Laura Kidd - a Bristol-based music producer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist releasing music as Penfriend. I'm on a mission to encourage self-expression in every listener by sharing deep conversations about creativity, grit, determination and mental health with fellow musicians and artists. Come backstage with me to learn from some of the best, and get inspired to stand up to your own inner critic. You don't have to make something of your own after listening...but you can if you want to!
