Thursday Night Live: Laura Boswell
Laura exhibits a poetic and technical depth that has garnered comparisons to Joni Mitchell, Norah Jones, and Nick Drake. She writes intimate folk music with classical influence that has been described as meditative, transcendental, and within the “chamber-folk” genre (Asheville’s Mountain Xpress). Along with being a singer-songwriter, Laura has a degree in classical guitar performance and studied piano from a young age. She views music as a bridge to human connection and vulnerability, as well as a powerful tool for fostering community. The multi-instrumentalist has self-released two albums, Counting Eyes (2014) and Fall Away (2017), and her EP Place to Be, recorded with engineer and musician Daniel Shearin of River Whyless. Laura lives in Asheville, North Carolina where she continues to write, record, perform, and teach.
