Nashville’s newest musical vixen Laura McCormick brings a fierce set of pipes with her debut album Box Full of Trouble. With a voice comparable to that of Bonnie Raitt, Ann Wilson of Heart, and Linda Ronstadt, Laura McCormick mixes power vocals with gut wrenching songwriting, blending her folk and country roots with her classic rock upbringing. With a family tree of ancestors who played fiddle, steel guitar, and banjo for country greats, there’s no denying Laura’s ability to pen a memorable tune and deliver a great performance.
Despite her remarkable talent, Laura’s life hasn’t always revolved around music. Most listeners will be surprised to find out that Laura earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing from MTSU and has passionately worked in the healthcare industry as an ICU nurse for the past six years. With a father who once turned down an offer to play professional baseball for a more reliable career, Laura was not willing to play it safe and let her dreams pass her by. While performing in small shows around her hometown of Tullahoma, TN doing guest lead vocals for local bands, Laura was spotted by music industry veteran Frank Schofield. Fate struck a chord, and the two began working together, writing and developing material for her debut album Box Full of Trouble.
While it may seem like a dichotomy shifting a career from healthcare to singing, Laura’s natural sense of tenacity combined with her passion for music provides an organic transition to full-time singer-songwriter. As a nurse, Laura provided comfort and healing to those who were suffering. With her music, she brings the same compassionate charisma to listeners with relatable storylines and mesmerizing melodies.
Box Full of Trouble packs a refreshingly powerful punch. Laura McCormick sings songs of heartache and pain while simultaneously highlighting her earthy recognizable vocal tone. Tracks like “One” and “I’m Gonna Break Your Heart” showcase soft soulful vocals, while still keeping her signature spunk and sassy lyric style. Her classic rock roots are evident in “Feel the Fire” and “Tuff Chick,” with country elements prominent throughout. McCormick is a perfect blend of southern charm and genuine grit, and her debut album introduces a fresh face to join country’s current leading ladies.
To compliment her songwriting chops, Laura’s fearless personality shines when she takes the stage. With years of performing under her belt and a confidence beyond her years, fans can look forward to performances packed with fun yet fiery dynamics. With soaring vocals and a killer backing band, Nashville’s newest spitfire female arrives with a Box Full of Trouble tucked under her sleeve.
