Biography

Portland, United States (2004 – present)

Laura Gibson is an American folk singer and songwriter. She was raised in Coquille, Oregon, and is now based in the Portland area.

With themes related to the pacific northwest, Gibson writes songs on a nylon-stringed guitar. In November 2004, she self-released an EP, “Amends”, produced and engineered by Drew Grow, on a laptop, in a house in Newberg, Oregon. Following this initial release, Laura released her debut full-length in November, 2006 titled “If You Come to Greet Me” on Hush Records. Engineered by Adam Selzer (Norfolk and Western, M Ward, Decemberists) and recorded completely on analog tape, songs on “If You Come to Greet Me” vary from pieces composed with bare-bones guitar and voice, to an orchestra of trumpets, piano, vibraphone, saw, violin, cello, banjo and found sounds. Songs have described as, “haunting portraits of nostalgia and intimacy, of loneliness and wide-eyed hope”.

The La Grande Songfacts reports that Laura Gibson’s fifth album is titled after La Grande, a small town situated in the forests of the Pacific Northwest where she parked her trailer and wrote and recorded the ten tracks that make up the record. It was released in January 2012.
