Winters Never Quit
Of Laura DiStasi, a fellow artist once said, 'Her music does what every songwriter wishes their music could do: it hollows you out, then fills you back in. It breaks your heart and builds you a new one. It moves you.' Winters Never Quit, Laura's debut album released in 2005, captures both the vibrancy and isolation of city life. Her lyrics hit close to the bone and are heavy with imagery. She plucks moments from the everyday, holding up promise in one hand and heartbreak in the other. After creating tracks 'No City Life' and 'Expectations' with producer/guitarist, David Little, before ever actually meeting face to face, they each relocated, her from Boston and him from Charleston, SC, to NYC later that same year. Now the best of friends and musical partners, Laura and David are currently in the process of recording an EP due for release in Spring of 2007. They deliver a captivating, almost cinematic live show, rich and lush with layers of electronic beats, guitar loops, keyboards, and synths, which one reviewer described as 'Postal Service with Sarah McLachlan at the helm'. The songs feel their way through impressionistic landscapes, exploring the complexity and depth of relationships, and are nostalgic, yet hopeful, that anything worth lamenting is, once was, or could be beautiful.
