**REPOST** Fiddler/singer Laura Cortese’s "Even The Lost Creek"

(Editor’s note: Posted originally in March 2006. Laura’s music has stuck with me all year and is a perfect compliment for the lazy-day-after-christmas blues.)

I have a couple secret places to find new music. Sort of up and comer lists and upcoming release lists, “blogger tricks” so to speak. I could tell you more but then I’d have to kill you. This post is inspired by one of those online destinations. (on an unrelated note I’m sure this is not the photo she envisioned people using for press).

Laura Cortese’s a fiddler and singer whose new record, Even The lost Creek, came out in February (on an unrelated note I’m sure this is not the photo she envisioned people using for press). This falls on the little too polished spectrum of my musical taste. But nonetheless Laura Cortese is an artist that you may want to listen to if you’re a fan of Sarah Harmer, Allison Krauss or even Holly Cole. As an avid, former ornithologist I’m a fan of the song “Bluejays”. But I can also get behind the standup bass and low key funk of the title track.

    Hi– I’m new to your site and have been bopping around it for a bit now. Josh Ritter wrote “Bluejays” and one of his bandmates produced Laura’s record. Check him out if you haven’t.
