Here's my story, thus far- Laura started out as a singer /songwriter. She moved on to star in the musical 'Hair' at the Royal Alex replacing Gail Garnett as Sheila. In the years that followed Laura toured with various rock bands and continued to write songs. Next came the role of Huck Finn, touring with Studio Lab throughout northern Ontario before bringing the production to Young People Theatre in Toronto. In 1975, Laura moved to New York city to study acting under Bill Hickey at HB Studio in the Village.She landed the role of Gretel in a local production of Hansel and Gretel,co-writing songs for the play. Returning to Canada, Laura began a 17 year career as a jazz singer. Georges Jazz Room,the duMaurier Jazz Festival,Meyers and First Canadian Place were amoung the many venues she sang in. In 2000, Laura recorded her first c.d. of originals titled The Journey of L. Barry Elmes produced the c.d. hiring some of Canada's fine musicians for the sessions. Chapters Bookstores hired her to sing weekly for a year. She also sang at Indigo and coffee houses in Belleville, Peterborough and New Market. The new c.d. titled Cabin Fever was produced by Richard Bell and again features a number of Canada's finest musicians. Richard and Laura took a year to put the song list together,sorting through over 60 of Laura's originals. The result is a fabulous collection of material shifting moods and grooves to the theme of the title song Cabin Fever. To date, Laura continues to write and plans to record again in the next year. She has the makings of a truly inspiring songwriter.
