Laura Vecchione’s third studio album, Love Lead, is her first fan-funded (Indiegogo) endeavor and first studio album in almost eight years. From Muscle Shoals to Motown, to poignant singer/songwriter ballads, each song reflects themes of resilience and hope, masterfully executed by Vecchione’s incredible vocals and supported by a host of Nashville’s A-list session players.
On the release of her debut album, Deeper Waters, The Boston Globe dubbed singer and songwriter, Laura Vecchione, “a bluesy songstress” and proudly proclaimed, “Vecchione is all ours.” Laura has recorded with multi-Grammy-award winning producers, opened for major label artists, and has had her songs featured on national radio and television.
Born in New York City, Laura’s Classical and Broadway voice training began at age fifteen. As an American Studies major at Barnard College, Laura found herself in the warm embrace of the Columbia/Barnard Gospel Choir while also studying Jazz Voice at Manhattan School of Music. Laura moved to Boston to attend Berklee College of Music. Later, studying guitar with local maestros John Curtis (Patty Griffin, Jon Pousset-Dart Band) and Ksenia Mack (Porch Party Mamma’s) she began writing and performing original material.
Over the course of the last year, Laura traveled from her home in Boston to record in Nashville, between teaching and playing. Her teaching site can be viewed Laura V Voice.
Praise for prior releases, Deeper Waters and Girl in the Band:
“Laura Vecchione hails from New York, lives in Boston, and recorded in Nashville. Keep this quick bio handy to remind yourself that she’s not from Chicago, because she sounds a whole lot more South Side than Soho, Allston, or Grand Ole Opry.”
-Rob Weir, Valley Advocate
“Girl in the Band is an exciting sequel offering some of THE best songs and vocals of the year from a female singer and songwriter who’s largely uknown this side of the water. This album establishes Laura Vecchione as one of the most powerful talents to come from America…”
– Laura Bethel, Maverick Magazine, UK
“Don’t mess with the Veck…if you do, she’ll write a killer song about you and sing the *@#% out of it.
– Jim Scott (Grammy-winning producer/engineer: Wilco, Tom Petty, Dixie Chicks, Lucinda Williams).
