Laura Gibson

avatar for Laura Gibson

La Grande is the 3rd album by native Oregonian songwriter & multi-instrumentalist Laura Gibson. La Grande is a town just east of the Wallowa Valley in northeastern Oregon, a place that “people usually pass through on their way to somewhere else, but which contains a certain gravity, a curious energy.” It’s an album about strength and confidence – about the tension between wildness and domesticity and the courage required to embark upon either path, about asserting one’s will rather than submitting. Joining Gibson on the album are musicians including Joey Burns of Calexico and members of The Dodos and The Decemberists. "The sound of a confident artist stretching her own limits, without losing sight of the warmth, richness, subtlety and haunted beauty that made her worth celebrating in the first place." - NPR "This gem of a long-player - both sleepy and steely, mystical yet rooted in very real and universal themes - deserves all the plaudits that will hopefully meet its release" - 8.5/10, BBC "Pays spine-tingling homage to the Oregon logging country of her roots." 4 stars **** - Uncut "Curiously beautiful..." 4 stars **** - Mojo "A hugely absorbing record." 4 stars **** - Q "Gibson's voice is 100 per cent her own." 8/10 - NME
