Laura fans to fund new CD
She self-funded her latest EP - "How Leaving Feels" in 2014 and after touring and promoting this EP in the USA and UK, she is ready to complete the project and release it as an album.
Now she's asking fans to help fund the studio time to finish the full album. Laura will continue to independently fund the production costs, pressing and manufacturing of the finished product and covering costs for promoting the album. Her goal is $2500, and has raised 75% with two weeks to go.
