Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
My name is Laura and my project is called ‘Laura Gray’. We are a Montreal-based project; a folk-inspired blend of moodiness and melancholy with glimmers of hope toward possibilities of newness. We describe our music as ‘Gloom Pop for the worn-out and open-hearted’.
Tell us a bit about your music and writing style.
Our upcoming EP, titled ‘Better Lighting’, explores themes of loving and letting – an exploration in describing the movement through difficult relationships with ourselves, with others, and with the broader contexts we are steeped in.

We do have some upcoming shows:
