Laura Tate

Here are some of Laura's thoughts about her fourth album, "Let's Just Be Real," awarded #5 Best Blues Album of 2017 by Vivascene

"Poets have written about romantic love for thousands of years, yet today’s songwriters still find a way to write music that makes you see love with new eyes. Love is fun – and funny. It’s surprising and sexy, tough and tender. This album looks at what I’d call the cycle of love – that dizzying fairground ride that takes us up and down and all around, from new love and passion to heartbreak and rebound."
 
I’ve ridden that big carnival wheel of love and I can identify with every song on this album. Let’s just be real for a moment: I bet you can relate to them, too.  -- Laura"

"A sultry torch singer and soul, Laura Tate brings both heart and wit to the stage as she introduces a new generation to the glamour of love songs from the past. Jeff Paris, who's toured and recorded with the likes of Bonnie Raitt and Ringo Starr, is a piano jazz and blues master. Together, in their new unplugged show, they carry listeners away in a tight set that is joyful and polished." ~Cindy Graff Cohen, Music Reviewer

Latest Album

Some listeners know that I took a break from music for a few years. Life intervened. Then, I asked myself, "What am I waiting for?" With more than a little help from friends from my past, I released three CDs in four years. Each was more fun than I could have ever imagined and this project has been no exception. All our recording sessions just reinforced the power of friendship and love.
