Considering the circumstances surrounding the bungling would-be plane bomber on Christmas Day, Laura Meyer's decision to dub her recent Northern jaunt "The Long Underwear Tour" may have proven somewhat unfortunate. It's a wise choice, then, that she chose to shed that banner for her current tour, which includes an extended stay in South Florida.
Under whichever guise she comes, the fact is, Meyer may be the best singer/songwriter still unknown in these parts. She's garnered numerous awards from her frequent appearances on the summer festival circuit as well as recognition from both BMI and ASCAP for her intimate songs. Stylistically she freely crosses the transom between folk and blues in ways stirring and sensual. A well-traveled troubadour, her deft guitar playing also bolsters her credentials, giving her an extra edge that separates her from the rest of the singer-songwriter competition.
