Laura Sea is a Canadian singer-songwriter and alternative rock artist. She was born and raised in the Greater Toronto Area and is now based in Milton. She sings and plays piano and guitar. Laura is a classically trained pianist, considering piano to be her main (and best) instrument. She is also a self-taught vocalist, always learning and practicing different vocal techniques. With these skills, Laura began her music career as a private piano teacher and built her student base from the ground up. Later, she started teaching vocals for beginners and has now taught music for over 10 years.
Although she has always been a musician, Laura did not always have time to fully dedicate herself to music. Outside of the creative arts, Laura is a pedorthist and kinesiologist. As a teenager, she always excelled at the sciences and had a passion for health, so she decided to pursue a stable healthcare career in lieu of the uncertainty of musical endeavours. Nowadays, with her healthcare career goals met, Laura is able to pursue her musical goals more vigorously.
Laura has been writing songs and music since she was 13 and has always had a passion for all things music. "Music has been the one consistent thing in my life, and I wouldn't have it any other way," she says. In 2020, Laura - finally - found herself in the position to be able to start focusing on her own music instead of teaching it to others. In the past, she has played at small events and competitions with great success. These achievements in classical music were a solid base for the start of her career as an independent artist. Laura started really coming into the independent music scene and started releasing her original music in 2021. Her debut single, Defy, gained great traction and was followed by another single as well as a cover song. All releases have gained her a small following of loyal listeners so far. This is only the start to what promises to be a successful journey as an artist.
Combining dark themes with lighter melodies, Laura writes songs that range from rock to post-grunge to pop-punk. With melodic piano and sincere vocals, she writes about overcoming struggles and hope to shed some light on life by bringing enlightening messages to her songs.
Laura is also an illustrator and launched a shop in 2022 called Sea The Art. She sells her designs as prints, apparel, and decor, among other trinkets. It is no surprise that Laura also designs all her album artwork. From start to finish, each song release is 100% brought to life by her hands.
Laura Sea is currently working on her debut album and releasing singles leading up to its release.
