Laura Veirs on Friday 8th February 2019
Laura Veirs is an American singer-songwriter living in Portland. Veirs as raised in Colorado, studied Geology and Mandarin Chinese at Cerleton College and worked as a translator for a Geological expedition in China. While growing up, she heard folk-country, classical and pop music at home; however, she didn't 'listen seriously', she says, until her 20s. After graduation, her taste moved to older country and folk, nd during her time in China she began writing lyrics.
Laura has been releasing albums since 1999, resulting in accolades such as praise from the Washington Post, a New York Times 'Critics Choice' and widespread critical acclaim. She blends science and poetry to bring strange beauty to everyday life.
Her performance at St Paul's Church, Birmingham, on 8th February will be a highlight in anyone's gig calendar in 2019.
