Laura Freeman

Laura Freeman. Songs for adults and children. Moving to New Orleans she met Mike West who encouraged her to start recording. Her first album Laura Freeman's Greatest Hit's from her 20's and 30's came out in 2000 she toured US/Canada and Europe singing these songs as well as writing and harmonizing with two other Divas Myshkin and Darlene. Moving to New Orleans and having a pack of children at her doorstep every day inspired her to write songs for children. Her first album for kids, A Baker's Dozen, came out in 2002. This was followed in 2005 by Color Wheel Cartwheel a wonderful romp through the rainbow accompanied by fabulous New Orleans musicians. Moving back to Austin and home state of Texas, Laura started working with preschools and teaching music to very young children. She quickly decided that a whole batch of action songs were in order and wrote the album Somersault Season, actually writing most of the songs with children in front of that needed to march, dance, act like flowers, experience the seasons through music, growl like monsters etc.

While all the music for children was happening Laura was also working on her side project/alter-ego Luna Tart. The songs are inspired by music from the 20s and 30s, living in New Orleans and a need to honor her inner diva.

Have fun exploring the different voices and faces of Laura Freeman.
