“Laura Dickinson’s rendition of You Go To My Head is pure magic and chilling enough to leave goose bumps on everyone’s arms.”
Laura Dickinson's debut album, “One for My Baby To Frank Sinatra With Love”, showcases the powerhouse vocals that have won her countless accolades on Emmy-award winning TV shows along with her talents as an arranger and multi-instrumentalist. "Sinatra's music is cultural," says Laura. "People all over the world know and love his songs." In her mind, Laura heard Sinatra's classics a fresh new way. It's those inspired arrangements played by a full big and a lush string section that make “One for My Baby” a jazzy romantic romp of sonic bliss. Laura recently packed the house for a CD release event at Vitello’s in Los Angeles receiving rave reviews.
A native of Southern California, Laura simultaneously infuses a unique freedom and laser-beam vocal precision into every song she performs. An in-demand singer in Hollywood, her soaring vocals can be heard in Universal's box office smash hit movie Pitch Perfect where she heavily contributed her voice to the entire soundtrack with a cappella legends Deke Sharon and Ed Boyer. Pitch Perfect won the American Music Award for Best Soundtrack.
Laura can be heard on commercials for Maybelline, Target, and Macy’s along with hit shows such as Modern Family and Supernatural. However, it's her award winning work on Disney Channel's animated hits Phineas and Ferb and Sofia The First that bring her the most attention. With a wink, Laura will introduce herself as "I'm your nine year-old daughter's favorite singer."
She has shared bills with Tony Bennett and Lyle Lovett. She recently returned from a North American tour with the UK's Spiritualized, promoting their new album "Sweet Heart, Sweet Light" which she also sang background vocals on. When not performing in concerts or working in the studio Laura hits the LA scene with her own all-star 10-piece jazz/funk band. The lady likes to work.
]As the above seems like a it would fill 24 hour days Laura has also had featured roles with rave reviews in many top level music theatre shows including Smoky Joe’s Café, Sweet Charity, Jekyll and Hyde, Evita, Annie, and Cole where her performance as Ethel Merman won her Scenie Award for outstanding performance by a featured actress. Quite remarkable for a young lady in her 30’s.
