Laura Trent is an American-Italian singer-songwriter ablaze with passion. Her choruses are forceful, emotional, eye-opening; she sings with uncommon authority, and her stories have the stamp of authentic experience. At the same time, she can wrap her sinuous lower-register around a quiet verse, and draw her listeners into an intimate kind of contact. “WISH ME WELL,” published in 2009, is her debut album. It builds from a whisper to a shout, and both extremes are rendered with uncommon intensity. She’s one with a taste for cinematic arrangements. Her songs are moody, mysterious, and builds to an engrossing climax. Laura Trent’s storytelling is colorful and dramatic, too – she’s not afraid to be direct or confessional, and the temptation she faces feels palpable.
