Bio

Laura Jorgensen is a fairytale princess... that is, if fairytale princesses can play accordion and sing about trees, apocalyptic worlds, and- of course- love. Classically trained during her upbringing in Seattle and now studying contemporary and world folk music at Berklee College of Music in Boston, Laura combines a wide variety of musical influences with a love for storytelling. For her, inspiration stems from history, mythology, social and environmental issues, and the creative use of language, and these elements collide to form lyrics that are both pleasing and compelling. Add backing from an eclectic band of fellow Berklee students, and the result has been described as mesmerizing, ethereal, souful, and captivating.

Laura has been compared to the likes of Joanna Newsom, Beirut, Kate Bush, Sufjan Stevens, and Regina Spektor. She released her first full-length album, Feathered Arms, in July 2010 and it is available for stream, download, and physical order at http://laurajorgensen.bandcamp.com, where 10% of proceeds are donated to support Bulgarian "warehouse" orphanages.
