Laura has been a mover and shaker since childhood. After stints acting professionally in Madrid, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, she has returned to her true love - music. She's an avid fiddle player and singer, and has lived and traveled throughout Europe and Asia with her fiddle on her back. She has trained in stage acting at the London Dramatics Academy and jazz performance at the Modern Music School of Madrid, as well as studying fiddle with Alasdair Fraser and Laura Cortese.
Always in search of a good jam, through music she has found her perfect means to connect with others, and exchange culture and experience. She has been known to show up unannounced at pubs to play until the wee hours of the morning, and has biked miles to the windy Cliffs of Moher in Ireland with her fiddle just to play the tune named after them.
Laura recently released her first Solo EP - Icarus Falls, and is thrilled to release The Seventh String's debut album in the summer of 2017.
Her songs address the full spectrum of human experience and emotion, winding metaphors and imagery through an honest and raw lens. Her major influences include Gillian Welch, Ani Difranco, and Billie Holiday.
She has recorded, collaborated, and performed with Veronica Valois Mendez, Kalei Yamanoha, Emily Mann, David Pascoe, Katie Stellar, Sandryati Fay, Trevor James and Court Hoang.
She currently lives in the San Francisco Bay Area, where she is performing as half of Late for the Train, an energetic bluegrass-folk duo with David Pascoe. You can follow her on Instagram & Facebook, and support her on Patreon.
