About

“I write songs because I need to. It’s the only way I’ve ever known to process everything I feel.” Laura never imagined that the songs she had written for herself would end up all over the globe.

Passionate and introspective in her craft, Laura is known for her intense stage presence, awkward innocence, authentic humility, and confessional songwriting. Laura remains focused on the musical conversation she is sharing with the audience. Every song is personal for Laura, and she is hailed for creating an intimate space where it’s okay to laugh, cry, and feel everything.

Her latest record, Love & Other Things, is a continuation of Laura’s unique style of organic piano- and acoustic guitar-based tracks, coupled with honest lyrics and rich vocals. A collection of nine songs primarily focused on love in its various stages and forms, the album was independently produced and features select musicians and engineers who embraced Laura’s Do-It-Yourself, home-grown vibe.

With no manager or booking agent, little to no press, and one year of piano lessons when she was nine, Laura has managed to sell out venues in the Philadelphia area and has had her songs placed in various television shows, movies, and YouTube videos around the world.

“It’s overwhelming for me sometimes, but it’s incredibly humbling to receive emails/letters/hugs from complete strangers describing how something I created for me touched or comforted them in some way.”

Thank you for supporting an independent artist, and let the music play you.
