ARTISTS – LAURA BARRETT

Laura Barrett plays
Saturday, April 21
at Rocket with
Olympic Symphonium and Andrew James O’Brien.

Caught between band camp music geekery and stripped-down folk earnestness, Laura Barrett’s kalimba and piano melodies invoke worlds of wonder, mystery and despair. Inspired by her childhood love of science fiction, Laura’s lyrics weave concrete portraits of a here and now that eclipse the strangeness and distortion of distant and possible futures.Having toured across North America opening for the likes of The Hidden Cameras, Beirut and Final Fantasy, Laura has successfully charmed audiences with what CBC Radio 3’s Grant Lawrence describes as “the most intriguing live performance I have seen in years.” Laura’s unique and compelling music have made her one of Exclaim! Magazine’s Artists to Watch in 2008, and her debut EP, Earth Sciences, was a finalist for SOCAN’s inaugural ECHO Songwriting Prize.
