Although Laura has been described as, “A remarkably fresh and unpretentious singer” (Spokesman Review), perhaps Paul Grant (CBC Hot Air), put it best when he stated, “With so many singers trying to sound like someone else, it’s a treat to hear Laura Landsberg’s fresh and original voice..she’s a natural.” Show 7:30 Doors 7:00.
