Primary Instrument: Vocalist
The lovely entertainer Laura Wolfe embodies the description triple threat, a handle defining her equal abilities as an actor, singer and dancer. It's an accurate description, though it doesn't sufficiently explain what happens when all aspects of a talented performer's training and discipline come to bear, as they do in Laura's work. Her distinctive style derives from a life's worth of dedication. Listening to her CD, He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not, you're treated to a layered and intelligent take on a dozen gems of the American Songbook delivered by an authentic stylist. In performance, Laura is so natural she pulls the wool over your eyes.
Engaging and warm, her voice is confident and assured, each gesture and emotion, organic. As Laura was considering ideas for her follow-up album, the concept of ...also dances (A Tribute to the Great Dancers of Film) came about quite quickly. Given her background and passion for dance, coupled with her love of musicals, the theme created itself: a tribute to great dancers from film, utilizing music from some of their better known dances on the screen. The album's title originated from the studio review of Fred Astaire's initial screen test in 1933: "Can't act. Slightly bald. Also dances."
