On Okay, Alright Laura Fernandez has blended pop, jazz and even classical influences. There are many different styles and grooves, a richness of textures. Each number flows and 'breathes' in its own unique way, always led by and shaped around Laura's fluid, feeling piano, and vocal.
Her first album, 2003’s The Other Side, is an English language collection of songs described as lyric driven, melodic folk, rock-pop with a groove. It led to a prestigious award at the New York International Independent Music Festival, and performances at Madison Square Garden, the Knitting Factory, The Bitter End, as well as international festivals including TD Toronto Jazz Festival and the International World Music Festival in Cuba.
Her 2010 follow-up album Un Solo Beso is a celebration of Laura’s Spanish roots and Latin influences.
