Come Around Again
Laura was born and raised in New York City in a family where music was always present. Surrounded by a variety of great influences, the love of music, art, dance, and poetry took root deeply, and early on. She spent summers in a house built by her great-grandfather in the mountains upstate, and there, fell deeply in love with the natural world. Since then, she has been a graphic and fine artist, a teacher, a Reiki practitioner, and a parent, which she calls 'the most important part of my work in the world.' 'I take a lot of my cues from the natural world, from writers, artists, healers, great teachers, and music. I try to keep my antennas in good working order, my willingness to look, and my effort to keep growing alive and well. I feel lucky to be able to laugh often, and especially at myself.' In recent years, music has moved back toward the center of her life, where she feels it belongs. This is her second album, and an expression of that renewed love and creative energy that 'let's these songs show up.' Laura currently lives in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Here are some snippets of reviews: 'Laura Golden's voice is in fact quite golden. ... her material, though apparently simple, is very much about exploration. ...Golden's classy voice, solid instrumentation, and transparent writing are consistently good.' -Joel Dunham 'There are no words that adequately describe the profound encouragement you are giving to me and others through your music!' -Peggy Harrington 'What Arose: Love without romanticism Health without prissiness Sensuality without baseness Beauty without ostentation Humility without negation Your words are so challenging and comforting at the same time. I am invited to a deeper appreciation and a more gentle holding, of Life.' -Wesley Lachman.
