I saw Laura a few years ago at the Opolis in Norman. Quiet and shy then, her music is definitely growing bolder with this latest album. La Grande features enough variety to carry your attention through its entirety, while staying true to Laura’s hushed, secret-telling sound.
You get carried away in her story lines, her melodies that seem to reflect her roots in Oregon. This album makes me want to pack up and drive there.
