Laura Warshauer To Play Bowery Ballroom, Tuesday, May 1

New York, Laura Warshauer will be taking the stage at Bowery Ballroom on Tuesday, May 1.  Doors are at 8PM and she goes on at 9PM.  It'll cost you $23.  Head on down and check her out!

In 2010, Songmaster’s and the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame, based on a nomination by BMI, awarded Laura Warshauer with the prestigious “Holly Prize,” an award named after Buddy Holly and presented to only one singer-songwriter per year. Now, after a string of high-profile shows (including a headlining set at the Official MPressFest CMJ Showcase, tour dates with Bob Schneider, Frankie Moreno, and Scars on 45, and an appearance at WXPN World Café), two national television appearances (including an interview and performance of “To Will And Kate, Meet Me At Exit 109” on the E! True Hollywood Story: Kate and Pippa Middleton”), a twelve-week chart run on MediaBase with “Wishing Well,” and an album release that garnered national praise and features in outlets such as People Magazine, Paris Match, and London Daily Mail, Laura’s career has “blossomed beyond [her] wildest dreams." But Laura’s success comes as no surprise, and although positively compared at times to Stevie Nicks, Cindy Lauper and Alanis Morrisette,  this Jersey-girl’s wisdom and youthful spirit render her sound incomparable.
As a result of successful one-off performances together, including gigs at Rams Head Live in Annapolis, MD and The Stanhope House in Stanhope, NJ, Laura will be opening for Bob Schneider  on his forthcoming tour of the United States. Beginning in Atlanta, GA in late April, the two will travel to at least 16 different cities, including, New York, Chicago, Seattle, Portland, and Los Angeles. Specific venues and times are TBA.
Laura recently spent time recording multiple songs in Nashville with producer Marshall Altman (Matt Nathanson, Natasha Bedingfield, Marc Broussard). Her forthcoming album, tentatively titled “Wicked Wicked,” is slated for a Spring 2012 release. “That Game” is one of a number of tracks produced by Bleu (Demi Lovato, Kate Voegele).
