Laura Gibson 1.24.19

Laura Gibson is an internationally acclaimed multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter, born and raised in the small Oregon logging town of Coquille. Her last album, Empire Builder, was praised by Pitchfork as “a cathartic tale of loss and redemption”, and was called “a triumph” by Uncut Magazine. Both literary and raw, with a love of traditional folk music and a bent toward experimentation, she has toured four continents and had the distinct honor of performing the very first NPR Tiny Desk Concert. She recently completed an MFA in fiction writing from Hunter College, and her sharpened language and storytelling abilities are on full display on Goners, a new record released by Barsuk and City Slang Records last October. Laura was nice enough to stop by Studio 1A while in town for a gig at Cactus Cafe. Scroll down to listen to the session.
