Laura Cortese wears many hats: fiddler, singer, songwriter,

multi-instrumentalist, bandleader, community builder, creativity instigator. Her band

Laura Cortese & the Dance Cards is a quartet of singing string players whose original

music draws from diverse traditions and experiences to create a broad-minded yet

clear-eyed sonic vision. It’s based in the lyrical rituals of folk music while exploring

new territories, moving seamlessly from gauzy, ethereal vocal harmonies to rowdy

indie-rock percussion to propulsive fiddle melodies directly from Appalachia or

Scotland. On the band’s Compass Records debut album, CALIFORNIA CALLING, the

band’s indie sensibility comes to the fore with the support of producer Sam Kassirer.

Their lyrics deftly explore themes of heartbreak, independence, and the restless

search for a home in the world. It’s a new kind of pop music: born from the folk

tradition, traveling the roads of 70s California, and delivered with power and heart.

Laura Cortese & the Dance Cards have toured and performed at premier festivals

throughout the United States, Canada, the UK, Europe, and Scandinavia.
