Laura Dickinsons 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 in a fresh new way. It's those inspired arrangements played by a full big band and a lush string section that make One for My Baby a romantic romp of sonic bliss.
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 Pitch Perfect, 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."
Laura performs live and records in-studio virtually seven days per week year-round, recently touring with UK space rockers Spiritualized, performing on the MTV Video Music Awards with indie superstar Florence + The Machine, and opening for legendary artists Tony Bennett and Lyle Lovett.
"The title song of the album has my favorite lyric: 'You'd never know it, but Buddy, I'm a kind of poet and I got a lot of things to say,'" says Laura. "It feels like this generation needs to hear poems from The Great American Songbook, and the best way to do it is through my favorite singer and his timeless repertoire. I can't wait to share this music with the world."
Laura is a proud member of SAG-AFTRA, Actors Equity Association, American Guild Of Variety Artists, BMI, and The National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences.
