La Grande

“La Grande”

Born in the small logging town of Coquille, Oregon, Laura Gibson started as an outsider to Portland's vibrant indie scene, performing solo acoustic shows in unusual venues like AIDS hospices and kindergartens. Her previous record Beasts of Seasons, released on Hush Records in 2009, was split into two parts (Communion Songs and Funeral Songs), and its confidence and scope caught the ear of a wider audience. Since its release, Gibson has claimed a very special place in the world of modern folk music among critics, and, more importantly, in the hearts of sincere music lovers.
