Laura Shepherd’s songwriting combines a down to earth spirit with an international worldview. Born in Paris, she‘s traveled the world from diplomatic circles in Geneva, to the dirt roads of South America.
With her hands in the earth, she has worked 20 years in Fredericksburg Va. founding an organic non-profit. She’ll tell you “When a root breaks it makes a certain sound.” She listens. It shows.
In Laura’s videos, like “Hard Times” filmed in New Zealand, her persona is as captivating as her message.
