"She displays a quality of songwriting that’s rarely seen in one so young....Talent like this doesn’t come along very often and Laurel appears to have a full sense of how to mix the simple with the complex and bring them both out masterfully with a voice that’s profoundly satisfying and rich in emotion.... Touching on topics such as dangerously dependant relationships and losing one’s lover, there’s a darker Billie Eilish quality coming through that’s spellbinding......Already on the road to new and interesting things there’s no doubt that we’ll be hearing a whole lot more from this talented young lady."

"Her style is very difficult to classify and that’s a good thing…Laurel Smith is not afraid to take risks…she has managed to maintain her true authenticity. That’s one of the things that is so great about Laurel Smith, her writing is legit.. we all change moods during the day… her music reflects those changing moods…it totally works: she is an amazing song-writer and performer"
