A WCMA-nominated singer currently based out of Vancouver Island, B.C., Laura has fronted metal, blues and folk bands. She brings these musical influences together to create a unique acoustic set of original songs inspired by natural West Coast elements; honesty and dreams; and women’s, human and animal rights – all shared with a powerful, emotive voice.
In 2014, she was nominated for a Western Canadian Music Award (Best Hard Rock/Metal Album of the Year) as lead vocals for the band Sain Arden. That same year, she released “My Time,” a single with all proceeds going to WAVAW (Women Against Violence Against Women) in Vancouver. In 2015, she wrote and organized a 10-song rock musical – Modern Banshee and the Limbic Landwalkers: the pool, the moon & the string – that premiered at the HR MacMillan Space Centre.
As an acoustic act she has played in cafe and bar venues across B.C., as well as festivals such as Desert Daze (Spences Bridge), 39 Days of July (Duncan), Hoot Stock (Forest Grove) and Rockstock (Cariboo). She’s also performed at the Rickshaw Theatre, Railway Club, Lana Lou’s and many other venues fronting bands like Dispell, Gordred and more.
