Ancaster resident Laura Cole's debut CD, Dirty Cheat (released through Porcelain Records) is a jazzy, sensual, soulful, energetic musical explosion! She sounds like a lounge singer who's finally been allowed to rock out. This ain't dull smooth Jazz - It's high powered, funky, guitar and piano driven boogie.
Poppy at times, it isn't over-produced and has a ton of live energy. It was mainly recorded in one day so the raw spirit is there.
Laura is backed up by Producer Steve Bigas on guitar, her dad Ron Cole (Banned From Heaven) on keyboards, Chris Chiarcos on bass and Mark McLean on drums. The legendary Daniel Lanois executive produced the whole affair.
You can pick up the disc at her amazing live shows or download it through her Bandcamp page, eMusic or iTunes.
