"Press excerpts from 2016 (for La Maison Verte)"

When songs manage to convey the fragility and uncertainty of life without becoming didascalic and heavy, we have no choice but to recognise their greatness. Giovanni Linke - Il Mucchio, October 2016 (ITA).

Devics stars shining in the sky of Below a Fire, the trumper scream in Jai Singh, the dark ritual of Shemkel, the trip-pop movement of Lovers' Eyes (written with Corrado Nuccini from Giardini di Miro'), are moments full of a charming expressive strenght. Guido Gambacorta - Blow Up, October 2016 (ITA).

La Maison Verte speaks straight to the soul. Piano notes are the red thread connecting each song to one another, each room to one another...The future is all to be written, but this albums is a bomb already exploded. Emma Bailetti - Rockit, November 2016 (ITA).

Strong of a renewed classical sensitivity, a voice that can tell all it wants, and atmospheres far from all standards, Laura Loriga is pure air, somewhere close to Lisa Germano and Chelsea Wolfe. Antonio Belmonte - Rumore, November 2016 (ITA).

La Maison Verte is the third record to come out with this name and it is also something more than the confirmation of its author's (Laura Loriga) talent. The album contains nine songs of mesmerising rock and pop songwriting, vibrant and strong. Music to listen to over and over, with the lights off. Lino Brunetti- Buscadero, November 2016 (ITA).

The real key to their sound is the air of mystery that they provide in both the drama of their songs as well as in the intriguing blend of styles... DC Rock Live (US)

With one song (Birds of a Feather), Laura Loriga and Mimes of Wine completely get under your skin [...] A darkness shrouds this hauntingly beautiful and fragile song [...]. Breathtaking poetry. Atwood Magazine (US). -

Mimes of Wine is the project of singer and pianist Laura Loriga.

Laura has so far released three full length records (Apocalypse sets in - Midfinger Records/Warner Chappell, 2009,  Memories for the Unseen - Urtovox Records, 2012, and La Maison Verte - Urtovox Records (ITA)/Accidental Muzik (US),2016), followed by tours over Italy and numerous shows in Germany, Austria, France, California, New York California. She is currently active between Italy and New York. Among her main collaborations are the ones with the post rock band Giardini di Mirò, the one with composer Leonardo de Bernardini and the one with the producer Adam Moseley.
