Biography

“I write songs for a lot of reasons, after an experience that’s impacted me, or to express something to God, or for fun…sometimes for therapy…in any case, it’s just an honest expression of where I’m at.”

IT WAS A DIM CAFÉ ON THE NORTH SHORE, AND A YOUNG GIRL WAS UP ON THE TINY STAGE, playing for the crowd of style kids and hipsters that were filling the place on a sparkling Vancouver Thursday night. At most of those café shows, people are more into their conversations and their lattes and cheesecakes than into the music, but the place was dead quiet, everyone just totally taken away by the girl up there with the gorgeous, fragile voice. The crowd there knew that girl was something special, and now, five years later, Laurell’s music is continuing to catch people’s breath in their throats.
Now 25 years old, the B.C.-based singer / songwriter Laurell Hubick has become one of those rare artists who can draw from the mainstream, the sacred and the purely musical and turn out music that’s honest and unique, full of conviction and free of artifice. Coming off the recent release of “Into Your Love,” a collection of 11 original worship songs, and with a mainstream album in the works, Laurell is one of Canada’s brightest young talents, and certainly one of its purest voices.
With formal training in Jazz Studies at North Vancouver’s Capilano College, Laurell has been honing her skills as a songwriter since the age of six, when impromptu fireplace performances for her family made it clear which path she’d be going down in life. Laurell’s credits include winning the North Vancouver Battle of the Bands as a solo act in 1998, being named the “Vancouver Idol,” and making the top 100 in the nation-wide singer search “Canadian Idol” in 2003, 4 nominations at the 2004 Vibe Awards, and winner of “song of the year” at the 2004 Vibe Awards. “Great I AM” is receiving national radio play throughout Canada, and will be on two nationally distributed compilation albums to be released this fall. She has received widespread media coverage on BCTV, CTV, VTV and Rogers Cable, and in the Vancouver Sun, the North Shore News and the North Shore Outlook. Laurell’s talents have also earned her scholarships from Boston’s renowned Berklee College of Music. Over the years, one of the major inspirations for Laurell’s music has been her passionate faith. As her love for God has increased, so has her passion for the gift of music, and her reflections on simple, real truths are a breath of fresh air. Music is a holy thing, a prayerful thing, a way of saying the things of the heart. “I believe it’s one reason God created music,” Laurell says. “It amplifies His voice when our ears are deaf to it, and it’s one of my greatest joys to partake in it, especially now that I know the One who created and inspires it.” From curious melodies and convicting passion to softer glimpses of wisdom and truth, Laurell’s songs are both an expression of her holy loves and an invitation into a higher world. As one critic has said, “it draws you into a unique place. She projects her reflection on life experience, God’s voice in that experience, and her conversations with God. And you can’t help but be drawn into that experience.” In November 2003, Laurell released her second CD, “Into Your Love.” Many of the songs, featuring Laurell’s accomplished songwriting and unique, jazz-inflected voice, were played live before a captivated audience of 400 at Vancouver’s North Shore Alliance Church. Over 500 units were snatched up in its debut weekend alone. This new album from one of Canada’s purest talents is a picture of the struggles, devotions and loves of a life of faith, and a diary of Laurell’s heart over the last 5 years. You will be inspired, and as one fan put it, “the CD will not leave your player for long.”
