Laura Lisbeth writes and sings songs about Life As She Sees It…..And she usually sees life a little differently.
Laura has traveled far to get here. She grew up in a small town on the vast, windswept Kansas prairie. In other lives she was a rancher’s wife, a mom, a businesswoman, an artist. Through all of these miles, she has carried the words in her head of love, loss, whimsy, heartache and joy. Which she now shares with you.
Her songwriting has garnered both recognition and awards from publications such as American Songwriter Magazine, Kansas Public Radio’s “Trail Mix” program, and 2014 Kicker Country Stampede Pick to Play Contest.
As a performing songwriter, she enjoys sharing a stage with artists from a diverse group of genres. Folk talent Gregory Alan Isakov, regional folk and old-time fiddle player Betse Ellis, and KC jazz pianist and radio host, Roger Wilder.
While some have raised comparisons to singer/songwriters such as Aimee Mann, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and Jewell. She is also sometimes compared to Ethel Merman or Yosemite Sam. Ultimately, she remains true to that little voice inside her head that gives a unique, if slightly skewed take on daily life, love and heartache. Delivering it all with a voice that has been described to sound “like butter.”

Four Roses – “It began when Paul Jones, Jr., the founder of Four Roses Bourbon, became smitten by the beauty of a Southern belle. It is said that he sent a proposal to her, and she replied that if her answer were “Yes,” she would wear a corsage of roses on her gown to the upcoming grand ball. Paul Jones waited for her answer excitedly on that night of the grand ball…when she arrived in her beautiful gown, she wore a corsage of four red roses. He later named his Bourbon “Four Roses” as a symbol of his devout passion for the lovely belle, a passion he thereafter transferred to making his beloved Four Roses Bourbon.”
