Award-winning producer Laverty has an exceptional list of credits, which has solidified her reputation as a fine creative talent with an impressive catalogue of releases across multiple genres. Having worked under the tutelage of award-winning producers Paul Epworth (Adele, Primal Scream, Foster The People) and Ben Hillier (Blur, U2, Elbow) working on releases by Florence and The Machine, Bloc Party, Depeche Mode and Pete Doherty, Laverty then took her talents and experience to Australia and became one of the country’s most in-demand producers.
In early 2020, Laverty worked alongside legendary US songwriter, Amanda Palmer and went on to record an entire album called "Forty-Five Degrees", which featured performances from Missy Higgins, Montaigne and Clare Bowditch.
Laverty has recently produced albums for Camp Cope, Stella Donnelly, Pinch Points, Screamfeeder and a live album for Courtney Barnett at the Royal Exhibition Buildings in Melbourne. In addition to her production talents, Laverty is an adept songwriter, having recently written with Stella Donnelly, Kav Temperley, Kaitlin Keegan, Dallas Woods and Alex Lahey, among others.
