Laura Meyer on Lyrical Venus 3/2!

Singer-Songwriter Laura Meyer

Singer-Songwriter Laura Meyer

Laura Meyer lists New York City as her base, but between moving often while growing up and her extensive touring, it seems that this independent artist is also an independent spirit, able to find beauty wherever she lands.  Her latest album, Miles From Nowhere, supports that idea, capturing slices of the traveling life from New Orleans to Colorado, Carolina and back to New York, with plenty of other places in-between!  Painting word pictures with a shimmering, smokey voice, Laura supports her little road vignettes with deft finger-picking and crunchy blues riffs in turn, providing as much of a trip for your ears as your imagination.

Winner of numerous songwriting honors, Laura has played in every sort of venue, from tiny coffee houses to huge outdoor festivals – including the Rocky Mountain Folks Fest, which I’ve attended the past two years!  We must have been there at the same time and I didn’t realize it.

Between all of Laura’s traveling and my love of live music, I’m betting we’ll end up in the same place sometime again in the future, and I’ll be sure not to miss seeing her.  In the meantime, there’s always YouTube!

Here is Laura performing her song The Ocean at WSCA 106.1 FM in New Hampshire. (Another low-power community station, rock on!)

And of course info, photos, blogs, songs and purchase info can be found on Laura’s site: http://www.laurameyer.net

You can also connect with her through MySpace, Facebook and Twitter for starters.  (other social sites are listed on her webpage.)

Finally, don’t forget to tune in to Lyrical Venus on KRUU-LP 100.1 FM this Tuesday, March 2nd from 9-10am Central for your weekly dose of female singer-songwriters!  Laura will be calling around 9:30.
