Biography

Growing up in Highland Park, IL, Laura Cohn was a creative performing artist. She loved to sing, tap dance, play guitar, draw and write stories. When she was in High School, she produced a student variety show for 2 years. Her parents enrolled her in flight training and she became a private pilot at 17. She graduated from Sophie Newcomb College at Tulane University with a B.A. in Political Science.

Laura began writing music after she graduated college. She pursued her own graphic design/art business in Chicago after working at a media company before moving to Colorado to focus on her art. Her first performance playing her music at a coffee house in Vail resulted in her being booked to play a festival in Idaho Springs and then being recorded in KBCO’s Studio C in Boulder. Her song “Silver Linings” was played on the station which began her journey as a professional singer/songwriter.

Many performances, live radio shows, air play of her songs on radio stations, community television show tapings and recording sessions brought Laura through Colorado and Arizona before landing her in Los Angeles, CA. She then wrote, produced, and performed 2 one-woman shows of her music, (both of which were well received by audiences), which she later adapted into a screenplay. She is currently performing around LA.

Lyrics

Life Is Good

Written By: Laura Cohn

Snow is passing by my window,
Flakes are falling soft and white,
Now everything is pretty,
Now everyting is right,
Wish it all could be that easy,
Like the flakes just falling down,
We could all be out together,
Have a party with the ground.

Something I believe is calling out to me,
"Be a part of Nature"
Happiness to me is being something I believe in,
Happiness believes that life is good.

Trees are standing like great towers,
Through the nights and every storm,
They hold like with so much power,
They can see how time is born.

Something I believe is calling out to me,
"Be a part of Nature",
Happiness to me is being something I believe in,
Happiness believes that life is good,
Happiness believes that life is good.

In this precious waking hour,
In the moment of the day,
Let me take the things of sorrow,
Make them sweeter on my way.

Something I believe is calling out to me,
"Be a part of Nature",
Happiness to me is being something I believe in,
Happiness believes that life is good,
Happiness believes that life is good,
Ah, ah, ah, oh,
Life is good.
