Originally from a small village in the South of France and raised in Connecticut, some of her inspirations include Carmen McRae, Sarah Vaughan, Nancy Wilson, Anita O’Day, Shirley Horn, Mel Tormé, and Blossom Dearie. Laura was coached privately by tenor Matthew Surapine and pianist David Lahm, son of well renowned Jazz lyricist Dorothy Fields. Laura has made several appearances on the New York, Toronto, Québec City and Montreal scenes, and has performed at the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal for the past three years. Her debut album “I’ve Got Just About Everything”, which came out in June 2019 on Justin Time Records, has been met with praise by critics and fans alike. A new second duo record will be released in May 2022 featuring guitarist Sam Kirmayer and special guest Benjamin Rosenblum on accordion. Laura has appeared on Global News, Jazz Today, Whole Note Magazine, and has been recognized by Radio Canada’s Ici Musique as one of the top 5 female jazz musicians to watch out for.
