Album Notes
Laura Crema Bio

Almost everything we come into contact with today is disposable. Things catch our eyes, tickle our fancies, and then we throw them away. When it seems as if nothing around us has been built to last, the disorientation can only be cured something timeless - something like Laura Crema’s music!

Like the great vocalists of jazz’s golden age, Crema’s voice resonates from a place that is deeper than the words she sings to connect her listeners to the elusive feelings and unexpressed longings that her music suggests. Laura Crema has a rare interpretive gift that allows her to inhabit a song and dive deeply into the lyrics of an old standard to suggest new meanings, shades and inferences that have lain dormant until they were lit up by the resonance and warmth of her voice.

Over the years, Laura Crema has performed and recorded with the finest musicians in Canadian jazz. Her most recent CD, BLUE SHADOWS ON THE TRAIL, a collection of early American folk, country, jazz and original songs was produced by the incredibly talented Scott Smith and recorded by acclaimed Recording engineer John Raham.

Born and raised in Vancouver, Canada, Laura Crema performs regularly, both as a singer and a multi-disciplinary artist and dancer in both her hometown of Vancouver and around the country. The depth and resonance of her voice as well as the singularity and discipline of Laura’s artistic vision has opened many door for her. She has toured and performed across Canada and Denmark having the great honor to play many of Canada’s most prestigious jazz venues, including The National Art Centre in Ottawa. She has performed with Canada’s finest vocalists at the ‘Divas for Life’ benefits in Vancouver, been featured on CBC radio’s Studio One Jazz Series during The Vancouver Jazz Festival in 2002, 2004 and 2010 as well as appearing on ‘Hot Air’, ‘North by Northwest’ and several other influential radio programs. Her previous recordings, 2005’s Almost Blue and 2007’s Spring Is Here received airplay worldwide and positive notices in ‘Downbeat’, ‘Coda’ and other taste making journals. Opportunities to experience such deep and pure musical expression don’t come around everyday, so if you ever have the chance to take in Laura Crema and her incredible live band, don’t even dream of passing it up!

“All great jazz singers have at least three qualities in common. The first is that unique timbre that sets their voice apart. The second is the material they choose to sing. And the third is the fresh ideas and insights they bring to those songs. Laura Crema has all three in spades.”
CBC Radio

“Crema favours substance over decoration, eschewing both affection and surface perfection in favour of direct, emotional renderings of her disparate and imaginative material…”
- Stuart Broomer, The Whole Note

“Vancouver’s Laura Crema has an ageless quality to her dry, dark voice..”
Downbeat Magazine

“fotografia is…a classy appropriately understated affair from a singer who deserves wider recognition. -John Sharpe, Scene Magazine

“Vancouver jazz vocalist Laura Crema and trumpeter/producer Brad Turner make for a powerful combination. Hers is a wonderfully deep, expressive voice and Turner has surrounded her with some great players and sounds. This is quite the inspired treat!”
The Vancouver Province

“she has a knack for bringing out a tune’s inherent emotional contours”

"Crema makes low notes glow like coals"
Mark Andrews, The Vancouver Sun
