      Laura Marie paints wonderful pictures with her clever/honest lyrics. She seemed relaxed and comfortable as she played the audience requests of her ever growing catalog. The only constructive criticism I can offer is more vocal volume modulation to provide even more interest in her lyrically strong material. I have been a fan for a while, but this was the first time I had seen her 'live'. Sign me up for the next broadcast show.

“Maybe you’re a lost cause...or maybe you’re a dark horse just like me.”

Laura Marie’s message to the world exists on a plane that reaches far beyond music, but thankfully she is one of those writers gifted enough to focus the roller-coaster of the human condition into song. Her latest release, The Season, is a reflection on unconditional love and resolution planted firmly in the singer-songwriter genre. Laura Marie offers some peace within the chaos of life through music, both for herself and as an offering to the world.

The South Texas native grew up steeped in poetry and music, earning her degree in music education and paying her dues in bands in Central Texas and beyond. There have been awards and accolades since (she won the OurStage Texas Lilith Fair Competition in 2010 and was a Regional Finalist in the Mountain Stage NewSong Contest), and audiences are continually drawn in to Laura Marie’s performances because of her honesty and passion. David Crabb from the Austin Acoustical Cafe noted, "Laura Marie captured the hearts of our audience with her energy, and she warmed the stage and the room with her talented performance.”

The Season was recorded with longtime friend and sideman Jake Owen, whose credits as a producer and sideman include The BoDeans, Goldspot, and Sahara Smith. The project was originally going to be an EP, but the process went so well they turned it into a 12 track full-length project. The Season brings home the truth that there is growth from struggle, and the theme of moving from darkness to light permeates the album. Laura Marie’s reminder throughout is that, “We are made to love....we collapse when we forget it’s about love. This is a connection everything shares...it applies globally all the way down to the cellular level.” The Season sings this message loud and clear both musically and lyrically; “I hope this album gives people excuses to love....what else are we made for?”
