MORE ON THE ARTIST:
Born one of five kids in Olympia, Washington where grunge was king and liberal hippies thrived, Laura Jean was raised strictly Mormon. By her mid-teens, she rebelled — music was her first outlet.
First honing her vocal skill in church choirs through childhood, a bronchitis-riden audition led to a chance acceptance to California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) and Laura Jean moved to California to study classical voice.
Through the years, she’s made her way working odd jobs, busking, living in an artist compound, and playing live in any capacity. She’s also done various forms of farm work in South America as well as berry farming in Washington state.
