MUSIC BY LAURA KRANZ
Laura began composing SSA and SATB pieces for a local choir at the age of 13 in the Bavarian-themed town of Leavenworth, Washington. Her studious approach to technical piano earned her the Paderewski Gold Medal at age 17, and she won the 2007 MTNA piano performance competition for Washington State at age 18.
Today, Laura plays piano and percussion—but she creates most of the sounds in her tracks digitally via sample libraries and her trusty MIDI keyboard. Her use of piano, orchestra, and electronica combined with altered vocals result in her signature dreamlike, yet hauntingly all-too-real sound.
It wasn’t until spring of 2017 that Laura discovered an existing genre that her music fits into: folktronica. Apparently it’s a thing.
Laura composes, records, and produces her music from her home studio in Bellingham, Washington.
