AMERICAN ROOTS PERFORMANCE: Smokey Tango
CONTEMPORARY BLUES ALBUM: Smokey Tango
Laura Tate is a singer with a heart as big as Texas and a passion for singing that goes back to her childhood in Dallas. Her musical talent took her to Nashville and New York City, before she settled in Los Angeles and added acting on television to her music career. Her repertoire ranges from jazz and blues to rock and country. With the toughness of a torch singer and the tenderness of a lover, Laura sings new life into American standards and popular music while also introducing songs written for her. Laura and her band released her sixth CD in eight years on September 16, 2022, "Smokey Tango," a bluesy collection with a double shot of fine New Orleans jazz.
"If you like your blues with a touch of jazz sung in the vein of old-tme torch singers, then Laura Tate's sixth album should be on your list." - Blues News
