Laura Vecchione / Press

“Here's a new female singer possessing a gutsy, soulful, edge-of-country style...”

Maverick Magazine

“Her voice is powerful and full of emotion...”

Metronome Magazine

“Don't mess with the Veck...if you do, she'll write a killer song about you and sing the *@#% out of it.”

Jim Scott (Multi Grammy-Awarding-winning producer and engineer)

“ Laura Vecchione was born in New York and lives in Boston, but you sure can’t tell that from her music. Her new album, Deeper Waters, was recorded in Nashville, and you’d swear from listening to it that she’s the love child of June Carter and Blake Shelton (after some fortunate accident with a time machine). Nevertheless, Vecchione is all ours...”

The Boston Globe

“ Laura Vecchione hails from New York, lives in Boston, and recorded her debut album in Nashville. Keep this quick bio handy to remind yourself that she’s not from Chicago, because Deeper Waters sounds a whole lot more South Side than Soho, Allston or Grand Ole Opry. This is a sassy mix of hard-driving R&B, soul, rock, power ballad, and genre-benders. When she covers The Beatles’ “Lady Madonna” the only thing blaring louder than the saxophones is Vecchione’s brassy voice. The way she belts out the chorus to her own catchy “Fool’s Gold” would make Koko Taylor proud. Some records fan you like a cool breeze; this one scorches like the blast from a five-alarm fire.”

Rob Weir - Valley Advocate

“ ...Laura Vecchione, a bluesy songstress who has been compared to Lucinda Williams and June Carter..”

The Boston Globe

“It takes a certain chutzpah to christen your debut CD "Deeper Waters", but Laura Vecchione enjoys boldness...Vecchione (rhymes with "Becky Tony") penned most of these tunes, save two terrific covers, serving up an auditory gumbo. The musicians clearly share the enthusiasm for the material, with a loose leash policy all over the record for slide guitars, gospel piano and even clarinet. When called for, though, both the production and Vecchione summon a wicked whisper of a delivery to aim right for the emotional center of a song...Thematically and musically, Vecchione cements the listener's trust on this collection, all through the simple persuasion of her own multifaceted vocal instrument.”

Country Standard Time

“ A confident debut that incorporates elements of blues, rock, pop, funk, country, and everything in between.”

The Boston Pheonix

The Boston Globe

“Laura Vecchione is a singer/songwriter in the Lucinda Williams tradition...the New York-born/Boston-based Vecchione similarly absorbs and reconstitutes so-called American music forms; rock, country, soul, blues, folk and even a little zydeco are all the same thing, as far as she’s concerned. Her songs are always solid, often exceptional (“Fool’s Gold,” “Breaking Heart in NYC,” the title track), but it’s her soulful singing that really makes these tracks soar. Check her funky cover of “Lady Madonna,” as she and the backing musicians take the Beatles to New Orleans and make them shake their Liverpudlian asses. If Natalie Maines ever leaves the Dixie Chicks, Laura Vecchione should be her replacement.”
