Music by Laura Kranz | Laura Kranz


Laura Kranz grew up surrounded by tall evergreens, stark cliffs, ice-cold rivers, black-smoke forest fires, and the smile-for-the-camera culture of a tourist trap town. She quickly gained attention for her minimalist approach to music composition; she 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.

Inspired by artists such as Radiohead, Sigur Ros, Alt-J, and Radical Face, Laura’s music grapples with feelings of futility and purpose, determination and despair, lucidity and delirium. Her use of piano, orchestra, and electronica combined with altered vocals result in her signature dreamlike, yet hauntingly all-too-real sound.

Laura composes, records, and produces her music from her home studio in Bellingham, Washington.
