t’s hard to put your finger on Laura Meyer. On the title track of her new albumBeen Here Before, she starts off sweetly singing: Been here before/ Got a rope against my neck/ Been here before/ I guess I never left. The tender folk vocals don’t prepare you for the striking left turn the album takes next, delivering the hard driving blues of “Motel Room Blues #1.” Meyer looks like a sweet little waif, but there’re dark corners seething under her ingénue exterior.

Alternating between folk and blues, she’s a skinny white chick with soul to burn, and inside are tough-minded songs that simply don’t seem like they could have come from her. On “Don’t Let Them Collect You,” a martial new wave beat delivers an edict about being trapped by exactly the sort of stereotyping I’m engaging in: Don’t let them collect you/ Don’t let them collect you/ They’re just trying to get you/ Put you on their shelf// No one’s gonna protect you/ no one’s coming to the rescue/ they’re just trying to dissect you/ So you better take care for yourself. - See more at: http://www.laurameyer.net/bio/#sthash.7L128V2f.dpuf

Alternating between folk and blues, she's a skinny white chick with soul to burn. Laura Meyer is like the female version of half Tom Petty and half Bob Dylan, plus extra guts.

Just listen to her: http://www.laurameyer.net/
