Having spent her youth using the arts to heal and process the world around her, Laura is driven to tell stories through her music. She finds inspiration from the people around her, nature, film, and music. She is constantly trying to find ways to infuse her lyrical voice into her songs, marrying both imagery and prose.
As a songwriter, Laura has released 4 albums to date, both under her name as well as her band, Lily and the Pearl. A review states "...her songs are the warm coffee on a rainy day. Or the oh-so-sought-after light at the end of the tunnel in the world of folk music. She maintains her femininity without being too demanding about it. Her beauty in her words is just as important as her folk music stamina that is very important this day and age..." -FensePost
