Bio

Laura Bates and Brandon Foote's sound is timeless, rootsy and lush, with soaring harmonies, piano, mandolin and guitars harkening back to the olden days with new vision. Bates and Foote look and sound like they could've just stepped off the stage of the grand old opry, or perhaps even further back, to the dance halls of the civil war era-Always digging deeper and moving forward. With their unique blend of old-time, folk, bluegrass and country, Laura and Brandon have graced coffee shops, bookstores, pubs, and festivals with traditional favorites and original songs. Booking their act as “Guitar, Mandolin, and Two Voices”, their sound is refreshingly simple and strives for authenticity, with nods to the Carter Family, the Monroe Brothers, and Tim and Mollie O'Brien. In addition to completing his Bachelors degree at Central Michigan University, Brandon studied mandolin at South Plains College in Levelland, Texas, under bluegrass legends, Alan Munde and Joe Carr. Laura studied voice at Great Lakes Christian College and received her Bachelors of Religious Education with a major in Music.
