Own and occasional covers
Laura Benitez plays sprightly country/Americana. (email@example.com)
Recommended first album:
Heartless Woman is the only one we've heard
Laura Benitez—vocals, harmony vocals, acoustic guitar, cowbell
This is very classic-sounding country/Americana with a modern twist. Benitez has a great voice and the songs are strong. "Worst Vacation" has a humorous approach to heartbreak, and Bentiez sounds just right. "I know you're bad" is a classic song about cheating and Bentiez approaches it with the right amount of sass. The album ends with a great version of Gillian Welch's "Tear my stillhouse down." It's a wonderful record all told. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
