"When I'm An Angel" 2017 STUDIO CD - LATEST RELASE by Lauria
"REPUBLIC OF FIORENTINO “Singer-songwriter Laurianne Fiorentino has always brought a certain panache to her work, an undeniable passion that pulsates outwardly from her guitar and right into your freaking heart. It’s how she was able to crowd-fund her new album When I’m An Angel, with the help of hundreds of fans. She put together a killer back-up band, tapped jazz stalwart John Rangel for production and assembled a genre-defying set of textured rock-meets-soul-meets-jazz(ish) songs. “No shoe-gazing here,” Fiorentino, who now goes by Lauria, says. “Just a passionate dance thought a festival of genres.” She calls it AMERICANA SOUL. Amen Sister. "
"A deep, old presence that reminds me of Leadbelly...more dynamics and power than some entire bands of talented musicians"
“The young lady is splendid! She gets you to sing along in call & response and when that happens, the music is healing you. So, she’s a healer too, just in case you didn’t notice!”
"Being part of a Laurianne Fiorentino performance is to be gently guided from the everyday to a plane of beauty and understanding that presents to us the possibilities of the psycho-spiritual worlds
we all seek with our beings."
"An artist unafraid to follow her instincts"
DIRTY LINEN ROOTS & WORLD MUSIC MAGAZINE
"Fiorentino has an un-orthodox voice that can go from a growl to a wail to a whisper. Her songs feature stunningly original lyrics, complex rhythms, honesty, and (surprisingly!) hilarity - almost all at once."
