Songs of the Cinema Sirens
With her rich, warm voice, a sly wit, and a true sense of
vintage song styling, Laura Ellis evokes the sensuous sirens of the silver screen. From the shadowy songs of Film Noir, to sultry songs of Kat from the Compulsion videogame, Contrast, Jazz in the Shadows sets the mood of days gone by.
Singer Laura Ellis "harkens to the jazz greats of old" (Jam Magazine)
To the time when movie sirens sang through the fog of cinematic intrigue.
To the time when indelible melodies arose from gritty 50’s Film Noir.
To the time when one note could change the whole mood of a song.
Laura Ellis has an exceptional talent.
Her voice has a soothing warmth likened to an alto flute
and a sensuality and intimacy in her performance
that makes one feel like she is singing only to them.”
Alan Paul, The Manhattan Transfer
