East Coast Folk-Jazz meets West Coast Folk-Bluegrass.
Chris Parreira and Laura Lee Imhoff met in Austin, TX in the Spring of 2009. While very different stylistically, they shared a similar work ethic and an immense respect for each others music and immediately became close friends and gig buddies. Laura Lee is a Southern girl at heart, but grew up on a small farm in Massachusetts. She taught herself to play an old guitar; stringing her poetry to a melody. In her late teens, Laura Lee moved to Boston and continued to grow as a young singer-songwriter. Chris
A lively and dynamic performer, Laura Lee Imhoff serenades the audience with her sexy, sultry voice; roping them in with heartfelt, storytelling lyrics of broken hearts, new loves and old loves. Her percussive guitar playing is similar to that of Ani DiFranco, but she blends it with an honest, original voice that some people might put somewhere between Norah Jones and Regina Spector. The young songstress has toured from the East Coast to the heart of the South and is now making her debut along the West Coast.
Chris Parreira also has a very energetic, percussive style of guitar playing, but takes a slightly different approach. It’s folk, it’s bluegrass, it’s jazz, but it’s also fresh and modern sounding. A smooth baritone, Parreira sings from the heart about the joy, the loneliness and every emotion in between that comes with being a traveling songwriter.
Performing both solo, and as a duo, Chris Parreira and Laura Lee Imhoff will meet up in San Francisco, CA this April for a tour that will take them to Seattle, WA and everywhere in between.
