Laura Hull Laura Hull

With influences ranging from Rosemary Clooney and Carmen McRae to Patsy Cline and k.d. Lang, Laura Hull delivers an extraordinary combination of rich, sultry, and expressive vocals with music drawn from an extensive repertoire of American popular songs, jazz standards, and her original songs.

A native of New York City, it all began for Laura at the age of seven when she took the first steps of her musical journey in an all-girls summer camp production of The King and I. Through her formative years, the road led her to the resorts of upstate New York's fabled Catskill Mountains, where she learned to sing in a variety of genres and styles. She spent time as a versatile session and jingle singer and show-cased her singing at clubs in and around New York City. After a 24-year hiatus from music to pursue a business career, and returned to live performance in 2004. In her many performances since, she has emerged as a melodic jazz singer who has a real feel for the Great American Songbook.

In 2006, she recorded and executive produced “Hullabaloo,” her debut CD of original music, which garnered several songwriting awards and received major radio play around the U.S. Her original tunes reflect her diverse musical interests and run the gamut from swing to well-crafted ballads and Bossa nova rhythms. Her music has been licensed and played in both domestic and international markets.

“Laura Hull is a melodic singer who puts her heart in this album [Take Me Home] and it shows when you hear her sing. Trust me, take this one home with you and let Laura Hull's elegant style mesmerize you as she did me.” -- Edward Blanco, eJazzNews.com

“Laura Hull has chosen to name her new CD after a song from the unique Mr. Tom Waits, Take Me Home, and once you have heard it, take it home is exactly what you will want to do. Laura has an immediately engaging voice, and a nice jazz feeling, with a steady sense of swing always present. This is Laura Hull’s first full album of standards, and it should be the first of many.” -- Joe Lang, NJ Jazz Society

“Laura Hull's dynamic new album is a solid mix of flawlessly arranged tunes sung with a contagious flair by a savvy jazz stylist who, like Daryl Sherman and her ilk, are passing the torch of the great American songbook.” -- John Hoglund, Cabaret Scenes

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
