Laura Gibson is a multi-instrumentalist/singer-songwriter raised in Coquille, a small Oregon logging town. Since the release of Beasts of Seasons (2009), which NPR called “nothing short of a masterpiece,” Gibson has seen her career grow to include everything from modeling in a Japanese fashion magazine to collaborating with Oregon Ballet Theatre. She has toured on four continents, is the recipient of a RACC Professional Development Grant, and had the distinct honor of performing the first and 200th NPR Tiny Desk Concerts. Her songs are both literary and raw, with a love of traditional folk music and a bent toward experimentation.
