Biography

She may look like a beauty queen, but sweet and saccharine she’s not. A seventh-generation Texan, Laura Ault doesn’t sound like your typical Texas rose. Her songs are like soft slaps to the cheek - a half-caress with just enough force to leave you stinging. She sings of love - and oftentimes it’s lost –but she’s always laughing between the lines. A true singer-songwriter, Laura is happiest when she’s collaborating – even her earliest memories are of singing Simon & Garfunkel in the car along with her mother, discussing the lyrical nuances of ‘Cecilia.’ Laura also credits her family with her diverse taste in music – a notorious spontaneous singer, Laura’s mother would often break out into song should she hear a snippet of conversation resembling popular song lyrics. Combined with cross-country RV trips laced with John Denver sing-alongs, Laura’s songwriting direction became very clear: she would write songs that didn’t just paint a passive picture of life, but that seemed destined to be sung like the song and dance numbers in the musicals she grew up watching: necessary expressions of life that couldn’t be conveyed in any other way. She began writing songs on the piano at age 17, composing soundtracks for movie concepts she’d developed in her head. In college, she pursued theatre, thinking musicals would be her career direction – but voice lessons convinced her that singing and songwriting were her passions. Since moving to New York, Laura continues to pursue her acting career, appearing in a number of stage, television, film and modeling projects, but her focus is firmly on her singing career. Her songs are currently being licensed for television and film placement, and she can be seen and heard performing throughout New York City. With influences as diverse as Paul Simon (on of her songwriting idols) and legendary stars of the Broadway stage, Laura Ault is a singer like no other – as much a romantic as she is a charismatic firecracker, her songs speak softly of love yet refuse to back down from the prospect of heartbreak.

I Want You

Camblin' On My Man

Written By: Laura Ault

Risky business
How’d it ever come to this
Isn’t the deal I planned
I should be folding this no good hand

Because I’m gambling, gambling on my man

Is he bluffing
When it’s me he’s loving
He get’s lucky every single time
but there’s no telling what’s on his mind

Oh yeah I’m gambling, gambling on my man
Oh yeah I’m gambling, gambling on my man

He’s got me spinning my heart on his roulette
I’m taking chances on his faithfulness
I might be winning at losing all that I’ve got but
I’m playing him while he’s hot

Whoa I’m gambling, gambling on my man
Oh yes I ‘m gambling, gambling on my… gambling, gambling on my…
gambling, gambling on my man…..
