What others are saying about Laurie Lee Lewis
As talent from the beginning
It was in 1987-88 as I recall that my friend and music business associate, Terry Lauber called me and asked if I’d be willing to take on a project that he would really like to do, but couldn’t due to his current commitments. I’d called Terry a couple of months previous and explained to him how my steady diet of heavy metal-speed core rock bands was beginning to wear on me a little, and how refreshing a little change of pace in the studio would be.
When I first met Laurie, I was of course impressed with her stunning beauty, but also with her warm and welcoming demeanor. I felt an instant artistic and personal connection to her and knew in my heart that I had to do anything I could to help this young artist. Discounts were arranged, studio time booked and the odyssey began. I remember how impressed I was at the lyrical depth and musical truth on display in her songs. Tales of love and love lost, the optimism of youth tempered with the unfolding realities of young adulthood all poured forth, bathed in that familiar warm blanket of traditional country music which evoked wistful memories of Loretta Lynn, Tammy Wynette and Dolly Parton. The album was not without its’ challenges, but Laurie poured her heart and soul into every decision and every note. The resulting record is a piece of musical art, well worth the doing and worthy of much pride. It is a beautiful and meaningful display of what an artist with a vision and a fearless attitude can accomplish.
As if Laurie’s recorded musical legacy isn’t enough, she has also used her music to literally lift others through significant charitable donations with each record sold. This wonderful artist has not only shared her music with anyone willing to listen, but she has used her gifts to feed and clothe the less fortunate. In this day of instant gratification and selfies, she chooses otherwise. The welfare of others has always been paramount to this artist and is an important part of what makes her tick.
I’ve been fortunate to work with some of the best artists to emerge from the Northwest, and in my opinion Laurie has earned a place in that group. It’s my fervent hope that Laurie continues to make music and share it and herself with the world. We need more like her.
