Bio

I’ve enjoyed writing songs on guitar and singing for 35 years. I never thought of myself as a writer, just someone who had a real passion for music. Whether I’m listening to another Original Artist or playing and singing a song of mine, I know I’m right where I’m suppose to be. From playing at Churches, Weddings, Folk Festivals, Parades, Events, Bars, Coffee Shops and Hospice Centers, I really enjoy the connection with the listeners.

I’m humbled to have played with some of Best Musicians in the Twin Cities and Northern MN area. Not only are these people talented, but even more importantly, they are sincerely some of the most genuine.

“Laurie’s tunes gently stroll us to quiet riverbanks, with stories of our sweetest childhood memories. Laurie is a woman with a kind and gentle heart, which is as clear as her warm, and resonating voice. She has done the rock and the roll, and now she is clearly in her song story element. Do not miss this talented and moving performer.”
– Mary Stoyke, Amazing Grace, Duluth MN 2009

“She’s today’s Anne Murray, easy to wrap yourself around her sultry voice”.
— Carl Franzén
