Laura Sawosko began her ambitious solo career as a singer/songwriter in 1999 after the band she played keyboard for parted ways. Her former band Surrender Dorothy opened for the 1999 Phoenix Lilith Fair with Sarah McLachlin, Sheryl Crow, and Dido.
Laura composed the original score for the gay friendly independent film, An Intimate Friendship, by Filling The Gap Productions. It was acclaimed by audiences everywhere after headlining both national and international film festivals.
You also may have seen Laura on NBC's #1 rated show, Fear Factor. In a brave attempt to promote her music and possibly win $50,000 to assist her career, she had the rare opportunity to ride a bull and eat cow brains. Although she did not win, it only proves how fearless Laura is in life and as an artist.
Laura moved to Nashville in 2010 and her music has truly evolved. Her songs have been recognized by Publishers for her graphic story telling with a melodic and poetic undertone.
