Watch & Listen
Nashville-born, New York-based country music artist, Laura Cantrell, uses her clear, purposeful voice to illuminate her stories and pull you in so you just want to listen to more. Her music has been celebrated in The New York Times, “O” Magazine, Elle, and the Wall Street Journal, and has been featured on NPR’s “All Things Considered,” and “Weekend Edition.” She has performed on “A Prairie Home Companion,” “Mountain Stage,” and the “Grand Ole Opry,” and appeared on “Late Night with Conan O’Brien,” and Sundance Channel’s “Spectacle: Elvis Costello.”
Her most recent release, Laura Cantrell At The BBC, compiles the best of her UK radio performances from 2000-2005, tracing the arc of her rise as an Americana artist on the airwaves of the British Broadcasting Corporation.
Songwriting Workshop and Concert.
Hailing from Limerick, Ireland, she’s recently settled in the U.S. She’s no stranger to the states, though, having toured there, as well as in Europe. She’s released six albums, including the most recent self-titled CD containing “My Man,” “Naked,” and “Guilty of Despair.”
When Paddy Moloney of The Chieftains says hers is “A voice the world should hear,” pay attention. With a hint of Alanis Morissette, her strong voice with a lush vibrato can soar over a pop arrangement in one number and in the next, soften enough to sing a traditional folk number like Sandy Denny. She’s a fourth-generation musician from Ireland with melodic original songs in a variety of styles, from earthy folk to hard-hitting pop. No stranger to traditional music, she’s also covered “Long Black Veil” and “All My Trials” with an emotional delivery that makes you believe she wrote them.
