Laura Cortese & The Dance Cards
Boston folk-pop darling Laura Cortese, with her band The Dance Cards are sounding as tight as ever: they have just returned from their US State Department-sponsored American Music Abroad tour to India, Bangladesh, Uzbekistan & Kazakhstan.  Cortese, speaking about the band's experience performing abroad says, "From the first notes of every show, the electricity is palpableThe separation between stage and the audience seems to have never existed at all. We haven't needed to tear down or kick in the fourth wall. just look across it and the energy comes streaming back." Fresh from their experience abroad, the band is ready to head to the West Coast for a spring tour with dates in Venice Beach, LA, Berkeley, Chico, Arcata, Ashland, Portland, Spokane, Kelowna (BC), and Seattle.

The electricity of LCDC live shows vibrates from the stage. The trio's creations are dark and ethereal: multi-textured gritty and personal original songs with plenty of inspiration from Americana and pop greats; songs that electrify and spellbind audiences the world over. While lush fiddle stylings root their music in a folk tradition, Cortese's vocals are as modern and savvy as they come.  Mariel Vandersteel's sensitive fiddle accompaniments, and Valerie Thompson's rock-solid cello grooves ground Cortese's dreamy, poetic voice.

The group's latest album Into the Dark (released spring 2013) has been widely celebrated in music outlets such as No Depression, and Beat Surrender, which described the album as "a musical landscape [that] is one to admire from afar and in its minutiae."
