"Who are we and what makes us the person we are today?" is the central question that Lara asks in this song. This song was released in September 2023 along with a music video filmed at Vianden Castle.
"The Sculptor" is currently a semi-finalist at the UK Songwriting Contest 2023.


Lara was only 14 when she wrote this song. In the current version she added strings which have filled out the sound and made the song more emotional. The lyrics, music as well as the string arrangement were all written by the young songwriter. The song was released in July 2023.


This song was written for the opening of Esch 2022 European Capital of Culture within the Future Frequencies project and Lara performed it at the Rockhal on 26 February 2022.

It’s a song that took its inspiration from the surroundings of the Rockhal, but it’s also about the excitement of going to a concert, the magic of people coming together to make music and how a city comes alive with the music that the people make.
