Album Notes
Gemma Laurence is an indie folk singer/songwriter from Brunswick, Maine. Half British and half American, Laurence’s time on both sides of the Atlantic has influenced her unique sound: a fusion of foot-stomping Americana with the lilt of English folk. Influenced by a number of artists, such as Gregory Alan Isakov, Ralph McTell, The Tallest Man on Earth, and The Head and the Heart, Laurence’s music is packed with catchy hooks and poetic cadences. The tremolo of her vocals and the pithy edge of her lyrics have drawn comparisons to artists like Joni Mitchell, Laura Marling, and Adrianne Lenker.

A lover of poetry, Laurence named her debut album, Crooked Heart, after a stanza in the W.H. Auden’s poem, ‘As I Walked Out One Evening": “'O stand, stand at the window /As the tears scald and start; / You shall love your crooked neighbour / With your crooked heart.” Evoking the bittersweet nostalgia of Auden’s verse, Laurence's timeless tracks call her listeners home to the people and places left behind for new beginnings.
