Laura Cantrell was born and raised in Nashville, but came to New York City for college and never left.  She’s not only a singer and songwriter but a musicologist as well, having served as the proprietress as The Radio Thrift Shop on WFMURolling Stone has called Laura “A modern woman with an old-timey heart, with a voice pitched somewhere between the bluesy realism of Lucinda Williams and the vintage femininity of Kitty Wells.”

Laura plays traditional country, alt-country and folk-rock as well.  The title song from her debut album, Not The Trembling Kind, was written by Jersey rocker George Usher.  She’s also covered Gordon Lightfoot‘s Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald. Laura has opened for Elvis Costello and also for country music legend Charlie Louvin.

Laura is headlining tonight’s bill and will hit the stage at 10pm.  Also on the bill at 9pm is Now I’ve Heard Everything favorite Ana Egge at 9pm.
