Laura Vecchione’s music has been described as,”gutsy, soulful, hard-driving R&B, bluesy, edge-of-country style.” Boston music critic, Billy Copeland, calls her voice “a force of nature!” Laura has just released her third studio album, Love Lead, and will include songs from it at this full band show.
Here are some early reviews of Love Lead:
“Welcome back, Laura Vecchione! Her new album, Love Lead, is her first in eight years but makes up for lost time. It s a tasteful yet uncompromisingly honest view of love s highs and lows, polished but real& ” Steve Morse, music critic, contributor to WBUR’s Cognoscenti, and Rock History instructor at Berklee College of Music
“Laura Vecchione’s latest album Love Lead grabs hold of the listener’s ears from the first track and never lets go. On fire for 13 songs, this Boston-based singer rocks, struts, and sometimes lulls her listener into a special place in each track. Wow, what a voice. Vecchione reveals immense talent and reaches a lot of musical heights with this Love Lead album. She rocks right out on some tracks and on others becomes a sultry R&B singer as well as a singer-songwriter with a beauteous voice that always hits her listener’s tender spot. Let’s see how many awards this album racks up in the next several months.” Bill Copeland, Music Critic
“Love Lead is lovely and vibey and musical with really strong writing. ‘Midlife’ is STUNNING&Wow!! Beautiful! Very impressive and moving.” Rob Mathes, Emmy-winning, Grammy, Tony, Drama Desk Award nominated composer, producer, music director
