    Laura Walsh Band District Stage, 7-10pm

    High Energy Country Rock Band
    Nashville recording artist and Arizona native, Laura Walsh, is actively involved in the Southwest music scene. Debuting her brand new album, Take Your Time, Laura has been featured as a pre-show opener for Miranda Lambert and Sugarland. As a local regular, she is making a name for herself at such venues as Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar and Grill, Handlebar J, Hard Rock Café, and Martini Ranch.

    Her first single, Hit and Run, released in Spring 2011, gave listeners just a taste of the power of her voice and songwriting capabilities. Upon release of the full album, Take Your Time, in May 2012, Laura displays who she is: confident, positive, loving, and strong. Take Your Time represents a rite of passage for a young girl that is knocking on the door of greatness.

    “Laura is an incredible new talent! Not only does she sing great and have excellent command as a vocalist, but her lyric writing shows that she has learned the essence of what a good idea can bring to a song. She is a pleasure to work with!” says music industry veteran, Billy Smiley, producer and co-writer for Take Your Time.

    Laura is so grateful and excited about the response she has received from local television stations, venues, and audiences of all kinds. She owes all the amazing opportunities that have come her way to God. Laura strives to be an example to young girls and women in the midst of an industry in need of positive messages.
