GEMMA LAURENCE is an indie folk singer/songwriter based in New York City. 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 a hint of English folk. The lilt of Laurence’s vocals and the poetic lyricism of her music has drawn comparisons to artists like Laura Marling, Joni Mitchell, Adrianne Lenker, and Haley Heynderickx. Blending bluegrass banjo riffs and cello melodies, Laurence’s timeless tracks call her listeners home to the people and places left behind for new beginnings. Her debut album, Crooked Heart, was released in 2019.
