"Savvy lyrics and tender melodies, sung with a flexible voice imbued with echoes of the jazz age, and, best of all, graced by the audible stamp of analog recording..." -Border Radio in The Stranger, Kurt B. Reigley.
About Laura Cortese: In her new album, Into the Dark, a fiddle drones, a cello purrs--and then Cortese begins to sing. There is nothing timid about her. Even in her most delicate moments, she projects power and poise. There is a sense, in that first number, that she might snap those fiddle strings or punch a hole in the bass drum. In the end, restraint reigns, but not before Cortese has laid the groundwork for an album that is as bold as it is elegant.
