Bio

Singer/songwriter, Laura Chandler, blends elements of jazz, pop and folk music to create a unique sonic landscape. With an emphasis on intelligent lyrics, her music is made of "crisp shimmering pop and a honey dipped voice coats every word." (Performing Songwriter Magazine). Hailed by Music Reviews Quarterly as "one of the most exciting and important new figures on the scene" they named her self-produced debut album, Mapping Territories, "one of the best releases of the year!" Vicki Barker, of the BBC's World Update, called it "Outstanding! It speaks to a whole generation."

Her collaboration with producer and composer, Walter Liskiewicz, began in 2008 with their debut album, KISS. This chill jazz break through record met with rave reviews and reached the top fifty on Indie Smoothjazz charts.

Chandler has contributed music to film and television and her songs have been included on several compilations. Her soundtrack for Conde Naste's Lucky Magazine commercial, Cheryl and Me, won numerous awards and earned an appearance on ABC television's, The Worlds Greatest Commercials.

Her popular single, "It's Christmas, Baby!", was featured on Carzino Entertainment's Christmas Compilation album, Holiday at the Beach, where she appears alongside accomplished recording artists, Michael McDonald, Craig Chaquico, and Ottmar Liebert.

Laura has toured with, or been the supporting act for, many outstanding artists including: Norman Brown, Keb Mo', Chris Isaak, Larry Carlton, Acoustic Alchemy, Iris Dement, Dar Williams, David Wilcox and The Violent Femmes, to name a few. She was named "Best of the Bay Area" by Fast Folk Music Magazine, and was also honored by Nashville's renowned Blue Bird Cafe in a tribute to up-and-coming artists, which eventually led to her inclusion in a popular book on songwriters, Looking For Number One. She has been compared to the diverse likes of Rickie Lee Jones, Norah Jones and Sarah McLauchlan. As Mitch Ritter of Dirty Linen Magazine says, "Chandler is ready for migration to divaville!"
