Laurie Anne Armour
Laurie Anne Armour, nicknamed LA by her friends, was raised on the shores of Mobile Bay in the Hollinger’s Island community. She grew up learning piano, fiddle, and woodwinds and realized her love for the guitar as a young teen. She performed in the praise band at her church, in concert and marching band at school, and as a solo artist on occasions.
LA began writing songs, performing at open mic nights, and playing gigs at coffee houses and restaurants around Mobile before she was 20. She does a wide variety of cover songs as she continues to write and perform her own originals.
Musical influences range from The Beatles to Lauren Daigle, Bonnie Raitt to Sara Bareilles, and Otis Redding to Lisa Mills.
Her solo style might be described as Contemporary Folk, with her songs drawn from and influenced by her life experiences. She sings about hope, love, passion, loss, sadness, and the strength and will to overcome, with all of it, shaded by faith.
She regularly performs with the praise band at her church and has been a Nappie Awards finalist 2016-2019. Her first EP is entitled Ebb and Flow.
