It only takes a few notes of Laura Dodd’s singing to recognize that you’re hearing the next classic Country voice. A native of Gadsden, AL, Laura acquired her passion for music early, hearing the a capella voices in the Church of Christ. With that as a foundation, as well as experience with various live ensembles and vocal coaches, Laura has entered the Country market with a spare, unique and highly original sound that blends traditional front-porch Country with Blues, Bluegrass, and even hints of Jazz.
Laura has shared stages with the likes of George Jones, Restless Heart, Travis Tritt, Jeff Cook (Alabama), Rascal Flatts, Patty Loveless, Bruce Hornsby, Josh Turner, and Ben Vereen. Her rendition of Sam Gay and Scott and Carolyn Parker’s “WOW” reached 54 on Music Row’s Country Music Breakout chart, without the benefit of a major label promotion. Laura’s most recent release, “Songbird,” stands alone in the market, using only the barest of acoustic guitar or piano-driven arrangements. Laura’s voice harkens back to the great crooners of old. You can hear and see Laura live on her website, www.lauradodd.com, or on www.digitalcafetour.com’s viral Internet video network.
