The Laura Simon Band
Music is the air I breathe...
Welcome to The Laura Simon band page. Enjoy.
Laura began her music career late in life after the tragic, sudden loss of her soul mate and fiance in her late forties. As she struggled to deal with the loss, she began dreaming lyrics, melodies, and sometimes full color all night dreams like watching a CMT video. She realized this gift would help her through such a hard time, and knew it was a gift to be shared. She kept a recorder by her bedside, and a note pad and pen, and began to try to capture what she could. Soon she bought a used classical guitar, a small amp and mic, and became a musician, self taught. Meeting many superb musicians everywhere she went, Laura formed her first band and recorded her first album of original songs, Force of Nature in 2005. Picked up by Tower Records, it quickly sold out. Then she filmed a DVD, The Laura Simon Band, live at the Cumming Playhouse Theater, also in 2005, which made the Forsyth County history books as the first and only DVD ever filmed there. In 2007, she made her 2nd album, Rode Hard and Put Up Wet, originals and two covers, which sold out at Barnes and Noble. In 2009 she released her best album yet, Beacon of Light, a showcase of southern talent, sold out at Best Buys and Barnes and Noble.
