Bio

Laura's music flows through many moods and grooves. She is hot jazz, bluesy soul, an inspired acoustic artist with a string of songwriting awards.

Considered one of the premiere singer songwriters in the DC area Laura's music moves her audience with powerful stories for our times.

Her musical evolution has been shaped by her personal experiences. In 2011 her family adopted a little girl from an orphanage in New Delhi, India. This emotional journey has strongly influenced her  album "Heart Of The Great UnKnown."

Laura is preparing two releases in 2019. Her first EP release slated for June 3oth is partly funded by a 2018/2019 Grant: Montgomery County Arts and Humanities . Stay tuned for a lyric video of a song  front the EP "On The Streets of New York."
