Laura Veirs

Laura Veirs - FUV Live - 2013

by Kara Manning
Laura Veirs' songs resonate with clarity, sagacity and nuanced sketches, often conjuring intriguing characters like jazz composer Alice Coltrane and outsider artist Howard Finster. Her latest album, Warp and Weft, is a visceral, emotional journey, gracefully produced by her husband, Tucker Martine. Laura, with infant in tow, recently stopped by Studio A to share some of those new songs and chat about the making of the new album for an FUV Live session.

Laura Veirs' new album might have been released in the winter, but it's definitely an album of the summer, complete with a name stolen from a variety of Georgia peach--'July Flame.' It was produced by Sufjan Stevens and Decemberists' producer (and boyfriend) Tucker Martine, and during an interview and performance in Studio-A with WFUV's Kara Manning, Laura talked about working with My Morning Jacket's Jim James.
