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.

“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

“Laura Hull's new CD “Take Me Home,” is an exquisite collection of old favorites made new again
