ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
funky and fierce, laura thomas is a singer-songwriter based in new york, ny. this alabama native has a powerful and shockingly unique voice that has been heard recently at venues such as the knitting factory and mercury lounge in new york city. classically trained and emotionally raw, laura's voice resonates with searing subtleties and complexities. the village voice recently praised her for her "thick-skinned song-poems in jazzoid rhythms." the washington post recently said: "[laura's] voice is capable of tracing melodies as sinuous as the rock creek parkway, and she has a soft spot for writing tender, compassionate or introspective ballads that help set her apart from the rant 'n' roll crowd."

for the past nine years since her radio debut in vermont, laura thomas has been all over the globe. as the lead singer of dc-based band kiki and the rockstars, laura rocked the audience into a frenzy and broke attendance records at the velvet lounge. weekly jazz sessions at the arc café in dunedin, new zealand were always packed. in sao paulo, brazil, laura guest starred in mind-bending funk jams at first-rate clubs like urbano and grazie a dios. adventurous travels of both body and spirit have sharpened her style and sound into a devastating edge of folk-funk-rock.

this year she produced her second album, "slow," a follow-up to her first album from 2002, "on my sleeve." her biting, crafty lyrics, powerhouse voice, and driving rhythm guitar make for an emotionally charged show. laura is not your average folkie - she sings with ani difranco's tell-it-like-it-is defiance, alanis morissette's sheer, clear power, and at times, the sultriness of a jazz singer. the result is an audio-shock of emotional truth.

Smooth, soft and searing...a true one of a kind talent!
This CD is incredible. Laura Thomas has a sultry and powerful voice that is special and wonderful. She has a soothing and melodic feel that inspires and shatters. Lyrics are complex and invoke everything from jazz to hip-hop...she is a talent to be reckoned with. The track called "Slow" is mean and gritty, showing some very creative songwriting and cool licks. Pick it up and spread the word.
