ABOUT THE NEW ALBUM

Created in her mind on balmy evenings on a sunny balcony in Paris, German vocalist
LAURA is proud to present her sophomore album, ‘Sunset Balcony’.

Inspired by her fourth floor Parisian apartment, Laura views her balcony as a nexus of
safety and freedom, as for her it provides the feeling of being at home whilst being
exposed to the outside world. With strong undercurrents of Norah Jones-esque
contentment and positivity, the record embraces a number of varied styles and textures
with confidence and joy. From the country/pop-tinged title track, to the hip-hop
influenced ‘Poke Bowl’, blues/funk energy of ‘Johnny the Fly’ and folky mood of
‘Bartender’, the 14 tracks are united by Laura’s universally relatable storytelling and
captivating melodies.

‘Sunset Balcony’ is an album whose music moves toward the future, but along the way
nostalgically glances back over its shoulder, into the real and emotional contradictions
between melancholy and optimism that we all have to live with now more than ever.

“This young woman doesn‘t need to worry about her career, she is amazing and I am sure we will be hearing more from her in the future.“

Quincy Jones about LAURA

About

You should be able to trust the opinion of a man, who has not only shaped the world  of Jazz on and off  the stage but who has also, as a  producer, propelled Michael Jackson “The King of Pop“ to fame. Quincy Jones says about Laura, “This young woman doesn‘t need to worry about her career, she is amazing and I am sure we will be hearing more from her in the future.“   When they met for the first time at the Stuttgart Jazz Open in 2017, what appeared to be a  prophecy about the 21 year old singer Laura Kipp, has today been confirmed.   She has launched her debut album “Quiet Land“ under the Label LAURA.  This debut album is a showcase introducing us to her talents.   Despite there being many excellent Jazz musicians out there today, who span a wide range of music genre and styles, it is rare and surprising to find such a charismatic and understated maturity beneath such refreshing youthfulness. She also expresses the freedom and complexity of Jazz together with the instant emotional power of Pop, Soul and Chanson.  The opposing elements that she draws on really create a certain tension while also blending them beautifully.    

As a hardened Jazz Critic who has heard and seen hundreds of singers over the years, it unfortunately becomes harder and harder  to impress .  However, Laura Kipp doesn‘t fail to impress from the outset.   Despite her age she is so mature, well travelled and charismatic and this comes across in her voice. Her far reaching travels from her homeland in Swabia Germany to Paris,  from New York to Los Angeles are  also reflected in her broad range of styles, from  brilliant songwriter ballads to punchy jazz vocalese, from soulful blues to string saturated glamorous  Hollywood sounds .  She has already internalised that unique power of jazz which she combines with her own individual expression together with collaborative creativity.   She builds on this with an inner confidence in her wonderful voice, her songwriting as well as the combined skills of her band members, the arrangements of both her mentor and bassist Jens Loh along with the expertise of Cornelius Claudio Kreusch as the producer and distributer.  The result is irresistible and rare in the German Jazz scene.  Young jazz musicians can become obsessed with experimental style jazz but Laura has gone beyond this with what can only be described in the best sense of the term “old fashioned“ with a modern twist. It is simply pure musical pleasure for those who love a bit of sophistication.

As is the case for all great singers, LAURA is not only about the voice and technique she is, above all, about capturing the art of storytelling.   Quiet land tells the story of Laura‘s  journey so far in her career, capturing emotions, encounters and experiences  gathered along the way.  Beginning with her entry into the Stuttgart Jazz scene with the brilliant input from both Anne Czichowsky and Fola Dada as her teachers, to the start of her musical career in the State Jazz Orchester (BuJazzo), then on to her studies in Paris. “Quiet Land“ represents her roots in her homeland, for the solid, stable base that everyone needs in life.  Laura‘s hommage to her past in Swabia  encompasses the inspiration, the magic of the city,  the journey of discovery and overcoming hurdles along the way.  All tied up in her poetic and original lyrics.
