Laura Ganci

In a style best described as a fusion of folk, rock and blues, singer/songwriter Laura Ganci's music offers a unique brand of poetic lyricism. With the weight of the world upon her shoulders, she bears her soul to listeners offering up stories of heartbreak, loss, and reflection.

Laura is currently writing and demoing tracks for a follow-up release which is a more bare-bones and raw collection of recordings, where both her vulnerability and vernacular will take center-stage.

Improvisation is ever-present, and spontaneity is paramount.

The band has been touring extensively throughout the U.S., Canada, and Europe over the last few years building new audiences with an adventurous yet accessible sound and a flair for the unexpected.
