Her songs are colourful, stripy socks with old jeans and T-shirt. They are as catchy as they are unassuming. You can’t help but take notice.” Carolyn Nikodym (Edmonton Vue Weekly). After humble beginnings as a "girl with piano" project, followed by stints with other bands (Said the Whale and Prairie Cat), Laura Smith formed her own band. Andrew Braun (guitar, keys, vocals) provides layers of vocals and instrumentation while Greg Bevis (drums,vocals) and Jeff Riedlinger (bass) provide the rhythmic backbone.
Having met at jazz school, they maintain a studious approach toward crafting new songs and are constantly tweaking and improving arrangements of older ones. They have "created a masterpiece and a live show that’s both entertaining and memorable" (Ronotron live reviews) “…one can only predict that Laura Smith has an incredible future ahead of her, not only on the Canadian music scene, but we should also be hearing more from her on the international stage as well." -Joe Montague (Riveting Riffs – Vancouver Plaza Club) Read more on Last.fm.
