A quiet powerhouse, Laura Veirs has released nine studio albums, including a feature-length film soundtrack and a compilation of traditional children's songs on which she collaborated with artists such as Béla Fleck and Colin Meloy.
A song of awakening to a new, light-filled season, "Sun Song" by Laura Veirs finds the Northwesterner meditating on maternal and redemptive themes across beautiful waves of voices (including Neko Case), guitars and strings.

In the midst of winter's gloom, Laura Veirs' 2010 release July Flame awakens the senses and warms the soul. Her poetic skill and sense of wonder lend themselves to songs of vulnerability, searching and discovery.
