ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
She has a killer voice, a sparkling personality, and can really interpret a lyric. When Laura sings, you feel every emotion she conveys, and that is art.

David Fink - Co-owner - Acorn Theater in Three Oaks, MI

"Of course, Laura Freeman has a lovely voice. But so do many cabaret singers. What sets Laura apart from the rest of the cabaret pack is a remarkable ability to communicate character through singing. Freeman becomes the character reflected in the song. It shines in her face, in her voice, and above all, in her heart. Whether the character is an overworked secretary or a bird in flight, Freeman lets us in and we savor the truthful, personal connection that is so essential in cabaret." - Carla Gordon, Midwest Reporter - Cabaret Scenes Magazine

(Meadowlark) it’s a seven minute song with a foregone conclusion. But she made me forget what that conclusion was until right when she sang it.” - Stephen Schwartz

Laura Freeman’s debut CD is delightful. Freeman is on her game. Singing a scoche lower than before gives her supported sound with cleaner pitches enabling a thousand layers of rich interpretation. In Freeman’s care, Susan Werner’s I Can’t Be New” is sensuous and jazzy. “It’s A Lovely Day,” combined with “I Got the Sun In the Morning”, and ”Orange Colored Sky” recalls chirpy ingénues from Thirties movies. Instrumental interludes throughout are lush. The typically perky “Tea for Two” becomes a tender daydream under Freeman’s wistful interpretation. Dolly Parton’s “Jolene” presented in three part harmony with Beckie Menzie and Marianne Murphy Orland is a frank message of womanhood. Freeman builds “Paint Your Wagon” from a search for something lost to promising new adventure. Its blue grassy- banjo accompaniment is so right. The title track, “Something Cool” is glorious. Freeman finds the hope, sorrow and ultimately the truth of that lonely woman at the bar. “Meadowlark” is a grand flight of voice, hope, and discovery. The mix is fun-- doo wop, pop, jazz ( yummy scat on “Hand in Hand”) country and meaty ballads. Beckie Menzie’s imaginative arrangements are meaningful contributions to this fine debut CD. - Carla Gordon, Cabaret Scenes
