"Laura Jorgensen at Cafe 939"

"Laura Jorgensen's ethereal vocals [were] floating above accordion accompaniment. The visual and auditory image was that of a storytelling fairy princess, vocals gliding and soaring like a bird. Incredibly beautiful... I highly recommend that you have a listen and see her when you can." - Boston Survival Guide

"Storytellers Fall ‘09 Highlights"

"The standout act was Laura [Jorgensen], who accompanied herself on the accordion and brought in a trumpet player for a circusy waltz entitled “The Most Beautiful Fear.” Echoes of Sufjan Stevens, musical theater, and Beirut could be heard in [Jorgensen]’s songwriting and arranging, and for once during the show, it seemed like tuneful indie music might be alive and well at Berklee." - Berklee Groove

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, where 10% of proceeds are donated to support Bulgarian "warehouse" orphanages.
