"Haunting Vocals"

"...Her self-titled album was written and recorded in both New York and Minneapolis, and it’s a unique mixture of urban chic and Midwest innocence. Part electro-pop, part trance and part muted rock, Harley hypnotizes the listener with a voice that is both beautiful and haunting, like a sharply chiseled icicle or a temptress stuck behind a thick sheet of glass. “I’m the fire / burning bright red light,� Harley sings on “Breathe It In,� and from the tone of her voice you have to believe her. “I’m the siren / Cut through all the noise / Feel it change me / I break the silence with my voice,� she sings, and her voice clears its way through a funky pop beat to dance with the listener, forcing the song to come alive..." - Pulse


Harley routinely finds entire audiences sliding into her palm at the drop of a single lovelorn melody. -

"Angelic Whispers"

Laura Harley's vocals careen from smoky and wicked to angelic whispers. - Star Tribune

"Snow-capped Sade"

"After taking time out for a spiritual pilgrimage and grad studies in counseling psychology, ex-Sliver member Laura Harley returns to make meditative techno, mixing arty English new wave with chill-out guitar tones. Sounding like a snowcapped Sade, Harley (a trained life coach) strives for meaningful messages and inner explorations amid rich, subtle arrangements. Even empowerment anthems “Champion� and “Sing Out Loud� never lose their cool, but that’s in tune with Harley’s vision to make soothing, contemplative pop." - Minnesota Monthly


"Crystalline Electro-Pop Bliss: We fell for Laura Harley's music straight away. Former frontwoman of Sliver, Ms. Harley has taken her talent to new spheres with her self-titled solo release." - Church of Girl

"Secret Weapon"

"When Laura Harley sings that she's waiting for that particular telephone call, I feel like a schmuck for not calling her myself. This sort of listener engagement is've got a powerful weapon in Laura Harley's vocals." - SplendidZine


2006 - Laura Harley Eponymous LP



Laura Harley burst onto the Minneapolis music scene at the tender age of 18. As the front woman of indie pioneers Sliver, Laura dazzled even the most jaded audiences with her unforgettable voice. Over two national tours Laura garnered critical acclaim and propelled Sliver up the CMJ charts.

In the midst of her success with Sliver, Laura made a spiritual pilgrimage to the Baha'i­ World Center in Haifa, Israel. She left that war-torn land deeply humbled and longing to write songs with deeper spiritual meaning - to create music for a world on the brink.

When she returned to the states Laura parted ways with Sliver on good terms. She started her solo career with a leap of faith that turned into a year-long emotional and spiritual search. Shuttling between studios in Vancouver and New York, Laura wrote scores of songs and thousands of measures in her search for a new sound and message.

On her self-titled debut album, Laura combines electronica, alternative rock, and pop while exploring themes of search, struggle, hope, and courage. The result is a collection of songs rich in melody and meaning - music that soothes the wounds of modern life.
