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

Laura was a delight! Her winning personality came across just as much as her beautiful voice. The song selections were perfect and delivered with just the right mix of sultry seduction and playfulness. All in all, the show was a hit.

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
