Billboard Magazine award recipient, Laurie Dameron, has been playing the guitar for over 40 years and singing even longer. Between solo performances and performances with her band, Laurie D and the Blues Babes, she has performed for hundreds of venues in and out of Colorado over the past 25 years. A broad repertoire folk, instrumental, pop, country, blues, and jazz allows her to perform many different venues. One of her specialties and favorite things to do is provide background music for cocktail hour or networking events. She can add just the right touch with guitar instrumentals and light jazz creating a nice ambiance. For larger events she can add any instrumentation with some of Colorado’s best!
Laurie has composed, arranged and produced two CDs, “Utah Dream” (folk and blues) and “Looking Through the Blue” (jazz compositions). Her third and newest CD is a compilation of her favorite jazz standards and one original, the title cut, “I Can’t Wait to See You Again” which received an award of honorable mention for the 16th and 17th Annual Billboard Magazine World Song Contest.
“Dameron’s playing is a nice blend of old school Jazz Guitar, Rock n’ Roll double stops and swing blues. Her Guitar tone is crisp and smooth, giving her just enough bite for when she does her Bluesy Jazz thang…”
--Lyle Robinson, Jazz Guitar Life Magazine
“Based in Colorado, Dameron has an echoey acoustic sound on her guitar that is slightly reminiscent of Pat Metheny at times. Her music is soothing, danceable (but with subtle rhythms) and pleasing.”
--Scott Yanow, Los Angeles Jazz Scene
“Guitarist/Vocalist Laurie Dameron’s latest CD, “I Can’t Wait to See You Again”, is a musical journey through the Great American Songbook. Backed by some of Colorado’s top notch musicians, Laurie makes the trip down memory lane worth revisiting time and time again.”
