Born into a musical family, singing came as naturally to Laura as walking and talking. As a child she entertained family and friends with renditions of old favorites around the campfires of late Canadian nights. Laura played in her first concert at age 3 where she plunked out a one handed piano solo. She sang non-stop throughout her childhood but learned to use her voice in local children’s choirs.

Her solo singing career started at her school talent shows. Her pursuit of a career as a professional started in her teens when she was occasionally invited to sing a few songs with her Dad’s band. Her success and love of performing live brought her own gigs in pubs around the Golden Horseshoe in southern Ontario where she performed cover tunes of favorites like Sam Cooke, Etta James, Amy Winehouse, Bonnie Raitt and the occasional original. She also appeared in spotlight cameo performances at the Hamilton Music Awards, Festival of Friends in Hamilton and the Fieldcote Sunday Night Music series in her hometown of Ancaster.

Her musical journey has led her to LA, Toronto and Nashville where she began in earnest writing her own songs-a blend of old jazz and blues with a new age twist.
