About Me

XMStudios
I’m Laura. I sing, act, dance, play piano, guitar, and ukulele. Sometimes I play bass or tambourine just to look cool.

I’ve written songs ever since I was a kid. Around age 6, my sister and I co-wrote such classics as “Funny Face the Clown” and “I Am A Nice Little Maid.”

I am constantly, overwhelmingly grateful that I get to make music with some of the coolest people at some of the coolest venues.

I’ve been a professional actress, a professional educator, a professional singer, and once got paid to set up those inflatable fairground attractions.

I believe the world desperately needs original voices, whether you paint, write, design, sculpt, or sing. Even if you’re scared to do it. I’m scared to do it. You and I will hold one another accountable.
