Who is Laura Sumner?

Laura began her music career at the awkward age of 18 when she walked into a pub in Connecticut with guitar in hand and asked to perform.  That on-the-spot audition (a rendition of the Allman Brothers’ Ramblin’ Man) led to an immediate offer for additional gigs. 

She writes songs, too. 

After a 10-year hiatus of hiding out,  short-term tenures with cover bands, & a failed off-Broadway production, she picked up the guitar again as a solo player. Alas, performing at a bookstore in Connecticut she met bass player, Steve Barat, whose bass has become integral to her live sound. More recently, she is super excited to also play with Vito Calamito, drummer and impersonator extraordinaire,  when the space allows.

Live performances include original songs, favorite cover songs, and musical train wrecks.
