Vocals and Bass
Laura has been singing all her life, informally harmonizing with her mom, Carol, and, for years, training and singing in jazz and classical choirs in high school and college in Eugene, OR. She also studied theater and music at Portland State University. Laura began teaching herself the upright acoustic bass in 1998, and in 2001 became the Washington State Champion Bass Player and has been called upon by artists such as Laurie Lewis and Jim Page. She provides not only the bass, but also the highest of harmonies, her clear soprano voice adding the "sparkle" to Misty River's sound. Laura doubles as the technical engineer, providing sound reinforcement and keeping their motorhome, Annabelle, in working order (no small task!).
