I'm looking forward to seeing/hearing/joining in with your singing -- it's so easy to chime in and pretend it's all 'live!' because you sound alive when you're singing your own songs --and even those of other great singer/songwriters like yourself. Harmony House is a great venue full of people who appreciate honesty in songs -- you provide! See you there!

I'm a huge fan of Kate Wolf and when I stumbled across your Trumpet Vine A Tribute to Kate Wolf on ITunes I immediately purchased the CD. I LOVE it! Your talent is unlike any other and I could listen all night. Keep up the good work and share it with the world!

Listened to" Some Forgotten Dare" tonight on Folk Alley while working. I had to stop, Laurie took me to a new realm where thoughts took me away on a ride with her notes, her voice, and her soul. I did not want to get off. Thank you and all the artists that created the ride..in this case it was unforgettable.

Just met you in Fairfax, CA. in Marin County at a curiosity shop.
You reminded me how much I miss working with musicians. I was the sound guy at the Iron Horse Music Hall '90--'94.
Yeah, you reminded me why I liked that gig.

I was thrilled to hear that you'll be at the Tucson Folk Festival today! I'll be there. Requests? (I Wanna Be Like You has always been one of my favorite songs.) I "discovered" you when I first started playing around with MySpace.

Hi Laurie My freind Mark sent me the link to the song about your brother, Danny. My brother died last year and I still hurt. Your words in this song and the way you sing it-have been of an immediate comfort. I can see my brother smile that smile. Thank you so much

Hi Laurie, We met last year, on a damp and foggy morning, when you stopped at The Jesse James Antique Mall, on I-29, in St. Joseph, Missouri, on your way home. I told you I was a native of San Diego, we discussed California. Been a fan of your music ever since. Hope to see you again, maybe at a concert. You are so talented, what a story teller, such a haunting voice. It was a pleasure meeting you.

Hello,
A couple of years ago you called my pawn shop in Lincoln looking for an IPOD. It took me a minute to figure out you were not the typical caller, but an out of town musician with your music on your lost IPOD. I then realized you told me your name and I recognized it as the girl from the CD I had kept from this pawn shop a few years earlier. I had kept it because it was live in Lincoln and it looked real.
Anyway, I had not seen it but said I would be looking for it. I am sorry I never found it.
However, that inspired me to go home that night and check out the "Purple Moon" CD right away (probably for the first time.) It was VERY 'REAL.' I really enjoyed it. Thank you.
I only write this to you now because I've come across your CD again while filing my music into my computer. I got curious again and Googled you, and here I am. Sampled some more of your music and I really enjoy it. Have to order a CD or two. Really appreciate a 'real' artist who keeps doing her thing w/o giving in to the machine.
Just my story of my brush with an artist. Maybe not interesting to others - but a cool little story I'll always remember.

Chris Davey

February 26, 2012

Hello,
A couple years ago you called my pawn shop in Lincoln to look for an IPOD. Eventually I fugured out you were trying to tell me you were a songwriter and had some of your music on it. Then something clicked and I realized I was talking to the girl on the CD I had always kept after finding it a few years earlier at this same pawn shop. I had kept it because it was live in Lincoln and it looked like 'real' music. I thought the whole thing so strange. I went home and listened to that CD for probably the first time. It was 'real.'
Thanks for being nice on the phone. Sorry I never came across your IPOD - I did keep looking.
Was just reminded of this tonight as I came across your CD again while filing my music into my computer. Had to listen again before it got in there. Looking at getting another CD or 2 and hoping you perform around here again.

Hey Laurie, I enjoyed hearing you and Karen @ the UUC of Ft lauderdale while on vacation in sunny Florida. An evening very well spent. You had me hanging on every word. Listening to the child behind my eyes while I type.......enjoy the tour. Will look forward to see you again some day soon.

John Krause

October 26, 2011

Well I think last time I saw you was 1984...wow! I was looking through a friends list on FB and your name popped out like a neon sign. Last time I heard you sing you sat at our table (coffee shop?) and sang a melody into a cassette player then used that as a background vocal for a song you were working on. I was moved by your voice and style not to mention your ability to let it all hang out. Happy to hear that voice again and see how you've grown as an artist. Just to prod your memory-we had a baby girl just a few months before Rachel was born and lived on S.23rd. you used to walk by and we'd share parenting stories... I will keep an eye out for any performances in the LA area! Peace.

Elizabeth Irene Goodman Hallowell

October 25, 2011

Friend of Jerry Rau, and Jerry Rau and Band, I am so pleased to come here you tomorrow night in Blaine, MN on Jerry's Invitation...My son Glenn Allan Hallowell enjoyed Jerry's music from age 3 on in the Twin Cities to Age 39 when he passed away July 24, 2008. Jerry's music helped us through his 7.5 month bout with Cancer Treatment at Fairview Hospital in South Minneapolis near Seward Cafe. I am so glad to hear you are part of this month's tribute to Daniel Pearl. I look forward to your house concert, Octobe 26, Wednesday Night. Music/and natural ethnomusicology was Glenn's passion.

Hi Laurie, we met 14 years ago at Hickory Pointe townhomes in Hendersonville, where we both lived. You and your girls had supper with my wife and 2 kids. Your time in Nashville had just begun and mine was ending. Just yesterday I listened to the tape you gave me recorded live at the purple moon. As I listened, I hoped in my heart that you found success and happiness... looking at your website I think you have! I'm very happy for you. Be blessed, Tom and Stephanie Barger

Enjoyed your performance at 'Cousin Andy's' in the Yellow Moon Cafe in Cobden recently. Got your Kate Wolf album. One song was a little eerie - you were channeling Kate. Another, Cornflower Blue, you made all your own and it was just really fine. Thanks.

Hi Laurie,
I just discovered your website and listened to some of your music, WOW! I can't believe how great you sound. It's was also a blast from the past looking at some of your pictures from back in the days of Irving Jr High and remembering all the parties we attended back in those days.
I just moved into a house on 17th and Perkins Blvd which is close to your old house and hope you can come and do a show at Stransky Park down on the corner someday, it's a local park which put's on concerts during the summer, kind of in your old neighborhood at 17th and Harrison.

Glad to see your doing well and wish you the best.

When you were 18, your voice sometimes sounded as though you were endlessly old because you could do things with it that only decades of experience made possible. Now, your voice sounds like you are painfully young, with almost magical control and taste. No matter how much money you make at this, your work is as good as it gets. I am so glad to have discovered your music again.

Your Kate Wolf tribute album is even better than Kate doing her own songs. She would have approved of your interpretations (and been a little jealous of your talent at the same time)!

I bought your CD (the child...) when I was touring down around Atlanta about 10 years ago and have listened to it on and off. We played at the same singe-songwriter deal somewhere down there. I thought I would google you to see what you have been doing. Seeing your pic make me feel like I found a long lost friend. Keep up the good work, my friend. I am listening right now to the CD and it really speaks to me. You are a doll. Thanks for your art.

Jane Egan

September 5, 2010

I knew you when you lived on "A" Street in Lincoln. We lived at 23rd & A. I just heard you on KOIS radio and was delighted to hear your sweet voice and songs! I think about your precious little daughter that rode the bus downtown and we would sit together and chat way back in the 70's or was it the 8o's? Ha! I just wanted to say hello again after all these years.

Hi Jane! So nice to hear from you! It was the '80s! That precious girl is all grown up now. That was a peaceful time in my life, no car, just one little baby to take care of... very sweet times... I am playing near Lincoln at the PlainSong Festival on Oct. 2nd in Sprague, NE. Be sure to say hello if you can make it! blessings, Laurie

hi there: was cleaning out the cd rack and found the little demo sampler with 'heaven' and 'child.' took me back to san diego folk alliance-or was it nashville?--and a brief meeting with you and a few songs at a showcase. i liked the music and voice then and still like it today. though i am no longer a folk promoter, i am the pr chair for the portland folkmusic society. if you ever come west, let me know.
good luck with all your pursuits.

Hi laurie,
You're not gonna believe this! The internet is the best worldly way to trace friends anywhere....This is Sophia from France. I had met you when you sang in Lincoln at this coffeehouse on Thursday night in Lincoln back in 95-97. Was it the Purple Moon.? You had a gig and you let me join in to do a couple songs...Remember? Probably not without a pick...
How did I find you here on the net?
Well as I was doing research on a dear voice of mine, the epithomy of California for me, KATE WOLF, I went under artists who covered KW and there you were....

I still remember your songs on the fireflies..
You can hear some of my stuff on myspace.com/sophiasebastian and email me at .

I'm very happy you're doing well in Nashville! Getting on your CD now..Lots of inner light!
Sophia.

Well, we missed Zumbrota (and Fort Atkinson) but we came to see you in St. Cloud. What a fabulous show! Thank you so much for your songs and insight. You two sure work well together. One of the best concerts we've been to in a long, long time. Will you two tour again?

Michelle Dugan

August 25, 2008

Hi Laurie--
I'm so glad you'll be doing shows with David Stoddard in October. You are two of my favorite performers. I can't wait to come hear you in Zumbrota! maybe I'll make it to Fort Atkinson, too...

Laurie,
We miss seeing you in Sioux Falls! Please come again; it would be such a treat. Several new venues; the little city is really changing. I think of you every night lately (no kidding) when I'm sitting outside as the fireflies are abundant this year. I lost my cassette that included the song about fireflies and I really miss it. Miss you too. Please hurry back to Sioux Falls!

You probably don't remember me, but I lived with Dave Novak on South Street back in the 1980's. I currently live in Arizona and listen to KZUM on the internet from time to time. And this morning (July 3rd) I heard your interview on what I believe was your daughter's show.

You sound a beautiful as ever.

First heard you live in Little Rock AR circa 2003; dissappointed no new albums; I have both old ones.
Listening to "The Child" struggling for hope in my own life, mankind. Won't you write a song to help me understand the humanity that coould cut a person's head off with a knife or people who can dance in the street for joy after the murder of 8 students?

Hi Laurie
I enjoy your music so much such a pity I only met you at the end of your trip in Denmark. I will soon be releasing my album so you can't count on the fact that one of the cd's are coming your way. I plan to go to the states in the fall. Now I'm just considering where to buy my ticket to. I think it will be NY. But I think I might stop by you in Nashville.

Hey Laurie, I love your music. All of your songs are incredibly beautiful. I am always moved, whether it is to laugh or cry or ponder. You are a fantastic songwriter with a wonderful voice. I second Sherry's call for chords to Lightning Bugs. I'd love to be able to play that one for my children on camping trips during the summer. Keep making great music!

Hi Laurie! my friend Andy just told me about you and said he's transfixed and no wonder! you have a wonderfully compelling voice that resonates with warmth, kindness and beauty - i'm really surprised you haven't been snatched up by some major label - or that the labels aren't fighting over you - maybe you are being protected so you are free tomake your own path. i'm so loving 'my heaven' (mary poppins was my favorite back when!). and i love the way you've done a whole tribute to kate wolf. anyhoos, i wish you the best and hope to see you out on the road someday. nancy k

Hi, I heard your music just afew months ago for the first time. I fell in love with it. I have been a kate wolf fan for many years and to hear you sing her words so beautifully- I can't think of any words to describe the feelings that it brought up in me. I wife died seven months ago from breast cancer, she was only 40 years old. When I feel down I listen to your words and beautiful voicean dI know that she is happy because I am .
Thank you so much

Dear Laurie,

Thanks for visiting me with Gloria Holloway today at my bedside in the Tampa VA Hospital.
Sorry the VA would not allow you to sing and play your guitar for me - rules! We had a nice chat, didn't we? Wish I had your takent to write a song about barefoot Alder in her formal with her shoes in her hand on our first date.

Thanks for giving me your Child Behind My Eyes CD. I am enjoying listening on my laptop. Hope to catch you live sometime soon!

My best to you,

Ben Ritter in sunny Tampa

April 13, 2007

Hey Laurie, I can remember the early days when you were first learning to play and sing. I thought of you as my little sister. I'm talking 1976 or 1977? This last week I was coming home from a tour on the east coast and I put the Trumpet Vine cd in and I was so taken by it. I'm so impressed with the quality and feel. You've again come into my heart much like a little sister. You have come a long way since those early days and your truly in a class of your own. Thanks for not quitting and most of all thanks for being yourself and maintaining the free spirit that so many of us wish we had. God bless. Jim

Havent seen you in 10 years, but still listen to you. Missed you at uncle Calvins, but was glad you finally made it. (Knew you would.) Enjoyed web site. Nice to see pic of HHolmes. Look forward to catching you again.

Laurie, I have seen you three times in Sioux Falls, SD and hope you will return again soon. I am about to call in to the Women's Program on KUMD, University of Minnesota, Duluth to request My Heaven. I need a fix of it. Can't locate my ancient cassettes!
Happy Spring!

Laurie, I just found your music on MySpace. Beautiful, soulful stuff.
Pearl Street Mall in Boulder is as it ever was....lots of lovely street performers and fabulous undiscovered talent. Come back and play a gig here sometime.
