Lara Telfer won the public vote on Racing Welfare’s ‘Furlong Factor’ in May this year with her renditions of Let It Go by James Bay and Wings by Birdy. A mother of one and Marketing Manager at Cheltenham Racecourse, Lara has used her time during ‘lockdown’ to tap into a hidden talent and her debut charity album ‘Reined In’ is the result of weeks of hard work.
She teamed up with Yellow Shark Studios and Gold Cup Music to produce the 10-track album of covers, released on Wednesday 26 August 2020 in aid of Racing Welfare, horseracing’s industry-wide charity, and MIND charity.
Lara took to the mic to record her own versions of songs and performed with Paul Bond, also known as “Asti” who helped record six live tracks to a guitar that feature on the album.
THE ALBUM INCLUDES 10 HIT COVERS
Million Reasons – Lady Gaga
Ocean Eyes – Billie Eilish
New Shoes – Paolo Nutini
Times Like These – Foo Fighters
Let It Go – James Bay
Save Me from Myself – Christina Aguilera
Can’t Help Falling In Love – Elvis Presley
If I Ain’t Got You – Alicia Keys
I See Fire – Ed Sheehan
Not About Angels – Birdy
“Love this girl. She deserves to win, get voting today for Lara Telfer!”
