While Laura was still a student at King’s High School in Shoreline, she was a guest vocalist for Lance Buller’s group that came in for a studio session a few years back.
In 2014, Laura was named the winner of the high school division in the Seattle-Kobe Female Jazz Vocalist competition, and in 2015, Downbeat Magazine named her the national winner of their 38th annual Student Music Awards in the high school vocal jazz soloist category.
Laura is on summer break from the Frost School of Music at the University of Miami, where she’s pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in music with an emphasis in jazz vocal performance, as well as a B.S. in microbiology and immunology. We’re delighted that she made time to perform for KNKX listeners!
