Everything is bigger in Texas; the songs and the voices are no exception. Laura Lee Bishop brings that Lone Star State power to new heights, countering it with small-town honesty and knowingness. From sleepy Gilmer, the town that gave us Don Henley and Johnny Mathis, comes Laura Lee Bishop, a singer of commanding ability, sensitivity, and confidence. No stranger to emotional hardships and the strengths and struggles of family, she knows your darkest secrets, and she’ll tell you hers. No one gets off the hook in a Laura Lee song. It’s her urban sensibility, however, that brings this part-time New Yorker/Texan an incomparable edge to her music, as she effectively summons high-voltage pop, rock, and country undertones in her unique musical patois.
