The path to Keep Talking, the new record by Laura Tsaggaris on Overtime Records, is an inspiring tale of self-discovery. Seemingly out of nowhere, an artist has arrived fully evolved. But Laura’s true story is a saga of toiling under the radar until the day her music was ready to be heard. And ready it is.

Keep Talking is a DIY masterpiece oozing with passion and a savvy worldview. Born in Reading, Pa. and raised in Pittsburgh, Laura’s early life gave few indications of her eventual calling. A gifted athlete, Laura (last name pronounced “suh-GAIR-iss”) attended The College of Wiliam & Mary on a tennis scholarship and graduated with a degree in finance.

Before leaving for college, her father presented her with a guitar—an event that would prove to shape the rest of her life. Laura learned to assuage her social anxieties through hours of playing the few chords he’d shown her. She had a knack for making popular songs her own and was soon putting these influences to use as a songwriter. Upon graduation, the pull of corporate life and a steady paycheck--not to mention the stage fright that relegated her performances to the bathroom—postponed the inevitable.

The harder Laura tried to ignore her secret dream of becoming a celebrated artist, the more she was driven to heed the call. While working at a Washington, D.C. law firm, Laura recorded her first record, Proof, in 2005. The title is a telling indication of where Laura’s life was headed.

With this work, she now had proof of what she had always suspected--she was an artist the world needed to hear. Galvanized by the reaction to her debut, Laura embarked on a tour of the country to promote the album and launch her career as a performer. After the cycle of touring ended in 2008, Laura began working on Keep Talking. From the cautionary “Warning Signs” to the life-affirming “Get Yourself Right” to the hyper-personal “Pilots”, Keep Talking is a rare effort that rocks, soothes and inspires.

Keep Talking is slated for release May 5th, 2009. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
