October 16th 2020 — Today, Philadelphia-based Jazz-Pop artist Laura Lizcano releases her debut full-length album Heart.
Laura Lizcano is a Colombian born singer-songwriter artist now residing in Philadelphia. Although Laura has built most of her musical career off of her Jazz roots, she no longer defines her genre as just that. This is clearly showcased on Heart. While still implementing the carefree and relaxing listening style of Lizcano’s music she’s able to evolve her sound by adding on elements of folk and pop to her already established jazz roots.
Heart is a showcase of Laura‘s new and improved sound. The ten tracks embrace its listeners with an easy-listening musical styling while also speaking honestly about everyday hardships. With topics ranging from workplace burnout (‘Overworked & Underpaid’) to recalling long lost friendships (‘Hello Old Friend’). Heart also brings a refreshing mix of English speaking tracks and two Spanish tracks, ‘Corazón’ and ‘Funeral’ (a cover of Mon Laferte).
For Fans of Norah Jones, Fiona Apple, Lianne La Havas, St. Vincent, Melody Gardot, Emily King.
