Born and raised outside of Chicago, Laura grew up with an appetite for picking up instruments…and the inability to put them down. In seemingly no time this translated to a personal investment in the study and creation of new music. Laura traded the heartland for the coast and moved to Boston in 2008. In the company of many great musicians and teachers, Laura found her voice at the New England Conservatory, where she met and assembled her eclectic band of Tucker Antell (Clarinet, Flute, Saxophone), Matt Consul (Viola, Violin, Mandolin) and Brad Barrett (Bass, Cello). Although clearly infused with Jazz and Classical sensibilities the Laura Grill Band sound is undeniably Folk. Reflective lyrics are combined with tastes of chamber music, improvisation, and four part harmonies to create a sound that is unique.
