September 1, 2022 BY Bailey Vigliaturo
Toronto-based French/American jazz vocalist Laura Anglade has announced U.S. dates in support of Melody Gardot, kicking off September 9 in Westhampton Beach, NY with stops in Philadelphia and New York City. See the full list of dates below.
Originally from Brousse-Le-Chateau, a small village in the south of France, and raised in Connecticut, she is influenced by her parents’ gypsy jazz and classical backgrounds. Laura has collaborated with established jazz artists such as Caity Gyorgy, Martina DaSilva, and Ranee Lee, to name a few. Summer 2022 started with shows in Paris, France, Rochester, New York, and Victoria, BC, where she opened for Gregory Porter. For Laura, the highlight of the tour was performing for thousands of very enthusiastic fans at the Festival de Jazz de Montreal.
Her style branches out from traditional jazz roots, and some of her idols include Carmen McRae, Sarah Vaughan, Nancy Wilson, Etta Jones, Anita O’Day, Chet Baker, and Blossom Dearie. Her storytelling interpretations of standards and melodic approach to improvisation certainly portray a soul beyond her years.
