While in New York, Laura has performed at many prestigious venues, including Birdland, Lincoln Center’s Avery Fisher Hall, The Kitano Jazz Club, Bar Next Door, Zinc Bar, Cornelia Street Cafe, Garage, APUS at NYU, as well as at the Westchester Italian Cultural Center and the Italian American Museum, among others.

She’s a passionate vocalist with a warm timber full of colors. Her music is firmly rooted in the Jazz tradition, but her original songs, singular versions of Jazz standards, her take on pop hits and jazzy renditions of Italian and Sicilian tunes create a world that is both unique and universal.
