Midwest area songwriter/musician Laurie J Potter is all about finding innovative ways to inject music in her life and the lives of others. 2018 will mark the release of Laurie’s new concept album “Fame” which imparts the story of musicians we have lost to drugs, alcohol and suicide. The album has a twist and is told through the eyes of the lost artists. In keeping with her “real life theme,” these emotionally charged tracks reflect the nature of our humanness while expanding our perspective, understanding and empathy.
Laurie’s unique way of looking at the world is expressed through her dark tone and lyrics. She will draw you in with her strong melodies, low flowing vocals and harmonies.
Having released her first album “Free” in 2005 and second in 2011, Laurie is no new comer to the music scene. Her second album “Infrared” gained international notice and garnered favorable reviews as well as radio play.
Laurie was introduced to many genres of music while growing up which serves her well in developing her own creations. Originally from a suburb just outside of Milwaukee, Wisconsin she relocated to the Minnesota Twin Cities area where she resides today.
