5 Questions with Laura Street
1. When did you first become a fan of State Champs?
Around 2015 i think when Around the world and back was released
2. How has State Champs affected your life?
I discovered champs when I was going through a very difficult time and because of their music/lyrics I've managed to overcome my struggles and continue to be here to see them get the love and recognition they deserve.
Without champs, I would not be here today. I discovered them at a time when i needed some strength and guidance and since then they have helped guide me through my recovery by helping me through my darkest days BUT also soundtracking some of my brightest and best days i've had and i will be always thankful for that.
I also met the two best friends a kid could ask for as we met at my very first champs show, make friends with members of the champ's fam around the world and they have given me some of my favourite memories that i will treasure forever.
3. If you have attended a State Champs concert - what was it like for you?
I attended my first state champs show in 2018 on the Living Proof UK tour and loved it. I remember champs playing Our time to go and this might sound strange but it seemed like the whole crowd disappeared and I was the only one in the room and it is the most surreal moment I've had at any show by any band. That made me fall in love with them even more and I love and appreciate them more every time I see them play.
I've just gone to every date of their latest UK tour and loved every second. The energy they give to each show is crazy and never seen them have a bad show even if the sound does cut out during just sound like it did in London. I will cherish the memories from this tour forever and I've never been happier then when I'm at a Champs show 🙂
4. Any suggestions for what we can do/set up for Champs Fam?
A little welcome pack when sign up with exclusive merch/signed print or something to encourage people to sign up. maybe some more giveaways such as handwritten lyrics or champs fam exclusives/ upgrades especially whilst on tour,
5. If you could give State Champs a message - what would it be?
I have tried doing this in person and on social media but I'm no good with words and I can never say everything I want to but I guess THANK YOU.
