Episode 49: Laura Warshauer
Air date: 7.25.2012
It is said that you can take the measure of a person by the company they keep, and if this adage holds water then Laura Warshauer is an extremely talented young woman. Her list of cronies includes uber-drummer Kenny Aronoff and Roy Bittan of Bruce Springsteen's venerable East Street Band - as well as a cadre of other well-respected musicians and music producers. She can also list The Prince of Wales and his bride, Kate Middleton as friends from her college days at The University of St. Andrews in Scotland. And since those halcyon days, Warhsauer has been burning up stages around the world with her powerful voice that belies her diminutive stature. In 2010, BMI and the Songwriter?s Hall of Fame awarded her the inaugural Holly Prize. Her first album, "The Pink Chariot Mixtape," was released in 2011 and she spent part of 2012 touring with Austin's favorite acoustic and funky stalwart, Bob Schneider. Warshauer is most certainly on her way.
