Laura Jane Vincent is a professional performer, multi instrumentalist, singer and songwriter. She writes personal ballads of strength, loss, and triumph and features folk tales of those who should know better but just simply can’t help themselves. Her original, soothing but powerful sound comes from years of tutelage by her father and various other professional songwriters, classical musicians, and indie artists that she has surrounded herself with her whole life. She performs hundreds of concerts and shows every year, traveling the northeast and south. Always expanding her routes, she’s a constant touring force, longing to share her original music with any and all who will listen. After living and learning in several music scenes (including years in charleston, sc, asheville, nc, and the Piedmont triad of nc), she now lives in southeastern rural North Carolina in a 200 year old farmhouse with her bandmate and drummer husband, Dave Tippetts, and a general assortment of fuzzy misfit animals.
