"She Can Sing"

Great voice but watch the guitar sound. Look into pusblishing and send over to Pat B. Sound of the seventies Great! - - bjmcdonnell

"Good God! Really good pop/rock"

Cool walking bass intro, love the smoky, sexy voiced singer! - - ChristianD

"Great tune"

Good to hear a female voice for a change. The singer has a radio ready voice, I liked it alot. The lyrics were good, there are so many bands out there who must get their lyrics off a cereal box, this isn't one of them. It's nice to hear words that mean something and have some depth to them. The arrangement is fine I wouldn't change a thing. Keep up the good work! - - Overflow

"Good pipes!"

I'd like to hear a better quality recording. But the band sounds pretty well rehearsed and the singers voice was really good. I like the sutble back up vocals that were in there. - - promegarick

"Sweet singing"

The vocalist is really good. I enjoyed her singing. The background vocals sounded great! - - Dinosaurgreg

"Good stuff"

Vocals are great! I like to hear female vocals in bands that rock. The song itself has a great arrangement. Classic, but works well. Keep rockin! - john_turner


Still working on that hot first release.



Born with a powerhouse voice, Laurie Cairns began singing at eight years of age when she joined the church choir in her hometown of Aurora, Illinois. As she grew older, she became aware of different styles of music.

"The first time I heard Barbara Streisand's voice, I was in awe. I had never heard anything like that. It was then that I knew that music could touch the soul."

In high school, Cairns began listening to 60's rock and 70's funk, which became part of her own sound. Soon, "The Laurie Cairns Band" was born and performing throughout the Chicagoland area. She later became lead vocalist for groups such as Counterpoint, bliss and Cobalt and performed at many clubs in Chicago including the Cue Club, The Beat Kitchen and Schuba's. During this time Cairns showcased her versatility through interpretations of Patsy Cline, Melissa Etheridge, No Doubt and Heart and even gave Muddy Waters a run for his money on her rendition of Hoochie Coochie Man.

Motivated by other women performers, Cairns is moved by the pain in Etta James voice, loves the power of Kelly Clarkson's rock and is inspired by Sheryl Crow's storytelling.

"I have such an eclectic taste in music, but one constant is my interest in the human experience."

Now working on a solo career Cairns is recording her own music. She writes about finding love on her terms and accepting change, letting love in and knowing when to let go. Songs such as As I Am and You Don't Know open her heart up to the audience and leave her vulnerable to scrutiny.

"Everyone has their own heartbreak and their own joy. I feel fortunate that I am able to share mine through my music."

Cairns would love to one day work with producers such as Glen Ballard and Robert John "Mutt" Lange. "Music for me has always been about following my heart and doing what I love. It is a passion that I will forever pursue." Cairns manages to say it best with her own lyrics..."Sweet , sweet morning. Morning's on its way."
