Irish soul songstress Laura Izibor will make her US TV debut when she appears in seven consecutive episodes of One Tree Hill. Izibor will join the series as cast-member "Erin", and will perform her song Can't Be Love as part of her acting bow.

One Tree Hill creator Mark Schwann explains: "There's a musician I fell in love with and a storyline I fell in love with. She's really compelling, I loved her record, I really loved her accent and her vibe, and felt that was an energy we hadn't included in our show."

Laura will appear on One Tree Hill on E4 at 9pm on July 18th.
