Well. Laura Tsaggaris has accomplished the impossible. The singer/songwriter has turned "Oops, I Did It Again" into a compelling tune. Don't believe it? Listen to it here (http://www.lauratsaggaris.com/Store/webpage.cfm?WebPage_ID=234&DID=85) and prepare to be moved. In fact, we will definitively say that Laura's version is the definitive one. But, really, comparisons with Mrs. Federline are way off the mark, because Laura is an actual artist, with a genuine talent for writing songs and singing them with conviction. - Washington City Paper, Nov. 4, 2005
The Pittsburgh native now calls Washington, DC home and is touring in support of her first full-length independent recording, "Proof" (the long-awaited follow-up to this self-titled EP). The record was a long journey in the making that ultimately landed her in Raleigh, North Carolina, paired with a producer she'd met briefly three years earlier. Until then, she'd been unable to get the genuine studio treatment she wanted for her songs. "Proof" has finally satisfied her wishes. The production captures Tsaggaris's emotive vocals and frames her intensely personal songs within a lineup of seasoned musicians while preserving the intimate feel of her live performances. The result is all the proof one needs to see that Tsaggaris is a powerfully gifted emerging artist.
splendid magazine (2002)
"for those power chord strummers out there, Tsaggaris is someone to look up to; with precision and steady rhythm, she can manipulate six strings into a full chime or a single pluck, creating a collage of bursting sound, (and) her compositional instincts are right on... Tsaggaris is on her way to becoming a very accomplished folkie." - Chrissy Johnson
