Whether it be “Peace Someday” or “A Little Note” Laura Baron’s soring vocals tells the story. Laura is a three time 2014 Wammie Award winner (Washington Area Music Awards) and considered one of the premiere singer-songwriter’s in the Washington DC area. She won a 2014 Wammie for Song of the year for her song “A Little Note”. Her award winning expressive jazz vocals seem to shine on through every note. When I listen to her music, I feel her ties to the contemporary folk movement in her writing. I look forward to her filling The Stoltz Listening room with her warmth and emotion!

I'm looking forward as well to playing a few tunes by some very talented compadres with whom I've shared a stage,a drink and some great times.
