"Laura live"

"...soothing yet powerful and intoxicating vocal harmonies created by Laura Meade..."
-Jim Harrell -

"My Best Defenses review"

"My best defenses" [is] a solo from the artist Laura Meade who delivers a piano ballad in the finest Kate Bush tradition. My hope is that this extremely talented woman will be shown more on the next album - beautiful! " - German Music Magazine

"My Best Defenses review 2"

"My Best Defenses," with vocals and piano by Laura Meade made me think for a moment of the Patti Smith rendition of the Bruce Springsteen song "Because The Night." But, this remains a mellow piano and vocal piece... and I wonder why Meade isn't right up there with Alicia Keyes, Fiona Apple and others. It's a beautiful piece and was recorded live in Pius Hall of Manhattanville College, which makes it even greater, that she can deliver live." - Stephanie Sollow:

"Laura Meade EP Review"

“This is a warm, beautiful album of intelligent and sensitive female-vocal pop, with some progressive flavoring via the instrumentalists. It’s as good as anything in this genre on a major label, somewhat suggestive of recent Kate Bush, and you’ll be able to say you knew Laura Meade when she was just starting out.” -

"Laura Meade EP Review"

“Finally a lady who dares to step in the big footsteps of Kate Bush and Tori Amos. Although ‘stepping’ is not the right term for Laura Meade’s sensitive creations. Meade, who will surely be remembered by the connoisseurs of IZZ’s last album, My River Flows, quite confidently slips and glides down that very path once cleared by those piano ladies.
Inspired by the ardent wish to realize her own ideas outside of the ... IZZ concept, Laura Meade entered the studio in order to create a 5-song EP with her own personal sense of style. A portion of her IZZ colleagues quickly came to help out, although her successful debut has little to do with the big gestures of her habitual band. Here there are no synthesizers, no aggressive fuzz-guitars (except for the lead guitar at the end of “Charming”). What dominates here is a relaxed feeling, a sense of comfort and quiet, which seem to flow naturally out of the fingers of this lady. Of course, sometimes there is an up-tempo, when Laura attempts to chase away her vulnerability with an assertively cheerful mood...
Laura Meade’s debut EP wins us over with its refined songs with their tasteful instrumentals and it makes us curious about a complete album of this lady, whose website photo, one may say in passing, exudes real star appeal.” -
