Laura Smith’s distinct singing voice has been a mainstay of Canadian music for many decades now. Growing up in southern Ontario, she made the bold move to Cape Breton in the mid-80s where she found a vibrant music scene and the ability to artistically grow. She has remained in Nova Scotia ever since and continues to hone her craft of songwriting.
Personal accolades include two Juno nominations, a Gemini award, two East Coast Music Awards and an Honorary Doctorate in Humanities from Mount Saint Vincent University. She is probably most well-known for “My Bonny,” her unique interpretation of the Scottish song “My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean”.”
