Not much has changed about my favorite thing to do and where my heart is, musing with nature. I'm still inspired by open spaces, the last rays of orange and pale gold sunshine, smooth and tumbling waters, the lonely and longing of coyotes crying from foot-hills, and the midsummer goldfinches singing in the wind. These elements unite with touches of melodies from the mingling of my roots of Irish and Native peoples.
I create melodic and emotive piano music which is best described as "New Age". My influences include the music of Will Ackerman, David Lanz, Liz Story and George Winston. To express my essence and deepest emotions through harmonious, peaceful music is my calling. I hope while listening you feel the serenity I do when I return home to Etta's worn ivories.

"The pieces on the CD are very complete and mature. One would not dare to ever change a thing on a Rodin statue. And so appears Laura's work to me. The right music to find spiritual balance and rediscover the beauty within." Guenther Thallinger, Filmmaker
"I listened to the CD and drifted off into a wonderful reverie. I really love the story that the music and the titles of each piece tell. What a WONDERFUL journey!" Jim Ryerson
What music do you play at times like those, when you just want to be still and absorb...? The answer: this CD. It's peace, rolling reflection, gentle/natural rhythms & tides. Perfect daydreaming music, it flows with you. Beautiful." K.M. Jellen
