Native to the Northwest, Laura began singing as a child, growing up in a large family where both creating and performing music were a normal part of life. After several years singing in her church, she decided to try her hand at writing her own music at the age of fourteen. She continued to write original music as she attended college in Portland, OR on a music scholarship and became increasingly involved in a touring music group there. She toured with the vocal ensemble and the choir throughout the Western United States.
Laura has also had much experience within the studio, singing background vocals on multiple records, and writing and recording original music for video use. In 2007 she began recording the tracks for her EP at Downbeat Sounds in Vancouver, WA. The EP is currently selling at shows and in retail establishments in Oregon and Washington, and select tracks are scheduled for airplay on radio stations in the US, Canada and the Philippines.
Inspired by personal experience and the lives of those close to her, she writes in a way that draws you in to her journey of life, love, and pain – and brings a sense of discovery, hope, and understanding. Her lyrics and melodies are both raw and real, challenging and intriguing, and will always leave you wanting to hear more!
Laura's full length record will be released in the summer of 2009.
