Laura Rabell is an Americana artist and songwriter. She performs at music venues and charity benefits across the Southeast and serves as a member of the worship team at Waypoint Community Church. Currently based out of Nashville, TN, she has strong ties to friends and family in her former home of Charlotte, NC, and in Pensacola, FL, where she was raised.
Laura’s love of music blossomed out of a childhood filled with song. As a 7-year member of the Pensacola Children’s Chorus, Laura enjoyed performing music from many genres. As an adolescent, she explored a passion for poetry and musical theater performance which led to the discovery of songwriting and eventually a passion for learning the guitar.
With the support of her husband and manager, E.J. Rabell, Jr., she recorded her first demo album, Lonely Roads, at Blackbird Studios in May of 2012. Country Music Hall of Fame Member Charlie McCoy lent his talents for three songs on the album, and internationally touring guitarist Greg Foresman played guitar and mandolin. Album sales support the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, a cause the Rabell family is passionate about.
In 2016, Laura performed more than 70 local and regional gigs, including the Busted Roads Tour in conjunction with the Caroline Keller Band. She also taught a songwriting workshop for SkillPop, one of Charlotte’s fastest-growing tech startups, and published a Songwriting Workbook.
Laura is an honors graduate of the University of West Florida, a member of the Nashville Songwriter’s Association International (NSAI), an affiliated member of Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI), and a finalist award recipient in the 2016 Don Gibson Singer Songwriter Competition.
She is now concentrating her efforts on continuing to learn the craft of songwriting and writing her first full-length album. For more information, visit www.laurarabell.com.
