Laurie McClain / Bio


"Laurie's cd ASCEND will very much touch your emotions in a most valuable way..."-STEVE FORBERT

"Laurie turns each venue into her own living room, and each listener into a new friend with her disarming humor and passionate performance. Laurie's songs explore the themes of identity, growth, friendship and love in a way that always honors the fundamental mysteries of the human journey, conveying the stubborn optimism of an experienced innocent. She's a gem of uniqueness and authenticity."-JM KEARNS

"Laurie is a true artist. She opens hearts and sings from a place of depth and love."-KATHRYN, Kathyrn's House Concert Series, NYC

“Laurie's voice feels like my favorite moisturizer; it sinks in quickly and starts to heal. Her songs go deep and they stay with you.”-SUZY BOGGUSS

"Laurie McClain is my favorite songwriter in the whole world."-DONNA STJERNA, (Still on the Hill)

"Laurie has got to be from another planet. I've never met anyone - except maybe Richie Havens - who is so open-hearted and full of love for humanity, yet who appears to experience life on a different plane than everybody else. Her music is as innocent as it is informed by experience, as playful as it is rooted, and as detail-oriented as it is grand in scope." -DEVON SPROULE

Laurie McClain moved to Nashville, TN, in 1997 with three daughters in tow after spending most of her life in Lincoln, Nebraska. She has managed to make name for herself as a formidable songwriter and engaging performer on the national folk & Americana scene while raising her children, therefore touring only sparsely & sporadically around the U.S. for the last 20+ years. With her three daughters now raised, Laurie is now touring full time.
