"Laura LaVelle's Sheer Brillance"


“Laura LaVelle's music is sheer brilliance! Her voice, lyrics and songwriting are hauntingly beautiful, and her soulful, sultry voice is reminiscent of Ella and Joni, with an edgier, sexier earthiness. Her music is an elegant dance of rustic, rich lyricism combined with rugged, sensual guitar strumming and deep, earth shattering vocals. She has the voice of an angel, the soul, passion and grace of a true artistic goddess. ” - Dr. Chrissie Battista's Review


"Laura LaVelle"

“Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter Laura LaVelle has been called a 19th century poet with a modern-day edge. On some songs it's tough to tell whether it's modern music or lost recordings that have been sitting for a half century in old boxes. That said, there's simplicity inherent in her music and lyrics that is comforting and rich, but also deep and moody. LaVelle's finger-picking styles makes up half of the instruments on her album Parlour Pennies and her voice takes care of the rest, but the emotions LaVelle projects with those two simple instruments are incredible and should make for a perfect autumn night huddled at the Meadowlark. ” - Marquee Magazine

Bio


Singer-Songwriter, Laura LaVelle balances the abstract artistic borderlines, blending simplistic elements of poetry and music. Like a 19th century poet with a modern-day edge, her folky lyrical and melodic phrases transcend listeners into a masterpiece of mood. LaVelle’s soulful voice and simple fingerpicking sounds turn emotions, fuse chaos with clarity, and above all display an addictive extraordinary personality.

LaVelle's distinctive vocals and guitar arrangements exhibit her love for jazz by featuring rich songs paired with splashes of improvisation and altered melodies. Yet, in LaVelle's recent works she has exposed a new found love and understanding of an often forgotten art, true Americana Folk. In her debut album Parlour Pennies, she has combined her two forms of expression into a truly unique, fully harmonious style.
