Laurie Levine`s voice fuses childlike playfulness with maturity, a
combination that evokes a wide range of emotions; a voice that is simply
unique in its ability to engage the listener. Laurie’s catchy folk tunes are
reminiscent of what you’d expect to be coming from world class contemporary
folk acts the likes of Katie Melua, Lucinda Williams, Alison Krauss, Diana
Krall and Emmylou Harris.
Laurie`s blend of American roots music and the ‘Nu-Folk’ sound has earned
her critical acclaim and a growing audience. She has twice been nominated
for a SAMA (South African Music Award) in the Adult Contemporary category
and she has just returned from the Grahamstown Arts Festival with a Standard
Bank Silver Ovation Award for her performances there.
Laurie Levine`s third album “Six Winters” has just been released through
Rhythm Records.”Six Winters” sets a new benchmark on the South African scene
for production standards, arrangement and songwriting in the female vocal
genre. The combination of Laurie’s characteristic songwriting and producer
Dan Roberts` unique engineering and dedicated production flair is cutting
new territory and could very well head up a new movement leading us towards
a rekindled appreciation of the power and the role in society of female
story telling through music.
