Laura has studied all the great vocal stylists of the last century. And yet she imitates no one. Her pure tone, sparing use of vibrato, and total lack of affectation are almost startling when you first hear her, because you feel convinced that no singer has ever been so absolutely honest with you.”

- DAVID NOEL EDWARDS, The Berkshire Edge

French and American singer Laura Anglade is a promising storyteller with a lot to say. She draws inspiration from Carmen McRae, Blossom Dearie, Sarah Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald, Shirley Horn, Billie Holiday, and Barbra Streisand, among others. 

Laura has made a mark in the music scenes of New York, Paris, London, Toronto and Montreal, collaborating with some of the world's finest musicians, including Peter Bernstein, Jonathan Kreisberg, Ben Paterson, Ira Coleman, Reg Schwager, and Neil Swainson, to name a few.

She leads an active international touring schedule and will be headlining at several of this summer's premier jazz festivals across Canada and the United States.

In 2022, Laura joined singer Melody Gardot across the east and west coasts of the United States and Europe. Laura has performed in renowned venues such as Olympia (Paris), the Royal Festival Hall (London), Town Hall (New York City), the Ace Theatre Hotel (Los Angeles),  and the main stage at the Festival International de Jazz de Montreal. 

Her debut album, ‘I’ve Got Just About Everything’ (Justin Time Records, 2019) was met with praise by critics and fans alike. Her second Juno-nominated album, ‘Venez Donc Chez Moi’ (Justin Time Records, 2022) is a duo recording featuring Montreal guitarist Sam Kirmayer, with whom she was awarded the “Prix Opus" for Jazz Concert of the Year in 2023.

Her next album, ‘Get Out Of Town’, will feature a distinguished lineup, including Ben Paterson, Peter Bernstein, Neal Miner, Neil Swainson, and Adam Arruda and is scheduled to be released in the spring of 2025.
