Laura's voice is amazing and harkens to mind the jazz greats of old.” -Tristan Smith, Jam Magazine

Christian P. Wolf - Torrance Cultural Arts Foundation

“Our audience was more than captivated by her illuminating voice, gracefulness, and story-telling on stage.” Jessica Waltz - City of Vista Avo Playhouse
