Laura's love for music and words began at birth claims her parents. Her earliest memories are dressing up in her mom's clothes and belting out any creative tune. From, the playful childhood singing moving towards piano and voice lessons starting at an early age, Laura gradually began to fine-tune her talent at a professional level. Laura started her college career as a vocal major, but through many turning points ended up switching her major several times ending with a teaching credential. Teaching several years to small children was a remarkable and enjoyable learning experience for Laura, yet her passion remained in glorifying God through her music. As music always being a strongpoint in her life, she remained involved immensely with worship at her church and writing songs on the side. It took awhile for Laura to produce her first album due to her priorities of becoming a wife and mother. 'I think God planned it that way to re-direct my life appropriately,' comments Laura. With the overwhelming encouragement of her family, she compiled her songs together and worked alongside her phenomenally musically talented father to arrange and create her first album, Living Water. 'It was an all in all family project, from the skillful musical abilities of my father, the beautiful artistry of the cover artwork of my brother, and the prayerful and mental support of my husband. I could not imagine a more rewarding journey through my first album.' The album's focus is a reflection of Laura's passion about drawing the listener toward God and trying to literally paint a picture of God's character and Truth. Laura sings about His love and His grace and about the glory of God. Laura has approached each song individually. Each song has been originally written with personal inspirations from Laura's journey through faith, with the exception of Laura's two favorite hymns arranged to uniquely display Laura's creative style. Song after song, she empties her soul through poetic lyrics that utter the precise words so many hearts have long struggled to find. Each song varies in style portraying Laura's unique ability to still create depth in her music and lyric to inspire both the ear and the soul to the act of worship. Her powerful vocal range is displayed through out the album. The powerful vocals and string intimacy of 'Living Water' and 'That Scar' to the pop-tinged gospel of 'Be Exalted' and 'Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing'; from the eloquent quietness of 'Assurance' and 'I Will Be Still' to the all-out soul stirring blues of 'Blue Skies Ahead', Living Water manages to cover a vast amount of musical genres without ever losing it's central focus: drawing listeners toward God and His Righteousness. 'It is my hope that people will see God in a real way through the music and lyrics. Ultimately, I want them to see and know His faithfulness, His righteousness, His forgiveness, and His love.'
