Live Video: Laura Gibson

photo by Morgen Schuler

Rising out of the crowded Portland music scene is no small feat, but reed-voiced songstress Laura Gibson has emerged to make waves in the fast-growing folk revival. Acclaimed on both sides of the Atlantic, Gibson fills her songs with subtlety. Whether it’s the soft pedal steel that creeps through “Skin, Warming Skin” or the soft-but-imperative finger picking in “Milk Heavy, Pollen Eyed”, Gibson’s arrangements form emotive backdrops for her beautifully subdued vocals and sophisticated lyrics. Get a taste of her stunning live performance with video from her live session at KEXP in February below, and be sure to experience it in person when she stops in Seattle at the Colombia City Theatre this Saturday, June 9th, as part of the Noise For the Needy series:
