“Repo’s singing and songwriting are right up there with the best in her genre. It’s no stretch to mention her in the same breath as Emmylou Harris, Roseanne Cash and Lucinda Williams.”

Biography

“Well there’s more in there than a book can hold / Shadows and smiling ghosts....”

Get Yourself Home, Laura Repo's third album, celebrates the traditional music—bluegrass, old-time, country and blues— that she was raised on. (The opening track, “ Lullabies of the Land,” is a song for Repo’s father about all the coal mining songs he sang to her as a child.) Exquisitely recorded and produced by mandolin player and singer Andrew Collins at his own Sytesound studio, Get Yourself Home beckons with the warmth of its mostly acoustic instrumentation and the comfort of Repo’s compelling lyrics and understated vocal delivery. It features members of Collins' band, the award-winning Foggy Hogtown Boys, as well as a long list of celebrated Toronto musicians.
