A concert from The Studio H Sessions featuring Laura Merrimen
Laura Merrimen is an old soul who wears her Americana drenched heart on her sleeve. Keeping true to her roots she infuses a blend of rock and roll know how with an old-timey country and pairs it with catchy melodies and smoky sometimes haunting bluesy vocals. Some have compared Merrimen to a female Bob Dylan or Neil Young, others to Lucinda Williams and Neko Case, but you can't put your finger on it, the sound is uniquely her own. She is a prolific writer who delivers soulful thought provoking lyrics that are steeped in honesty and raw emotion. Laura's debut album 'Love Letters For Lonely Hunters', earned her the 2010 Music Nova Scotia award for Country / Bluegrass Artist Of The Year.
For this Studio Session, Laura was joined in studio H by Andrew Sneddon on Dobro, Adam Pye on acoustic bass and Tom Terrell on percussion.
