Laurie D will feature originals and covers from all three of her albums plus some new tunes. This is her first time at Avo’s and has been trying to book a gig since the 1990s! So I’m thrilled to be sharing my music at this infamous venue!
Billboard Magazine award recipient, Laurie Dameron, has been playing the guitar for nearly 50 years and singing even longer. Between solo performances and performances with her band, Laurie D and the Blues Babes, she has performed for hundreds of venues in and out of Colorado over the past 25 years. A broad repertoire of folk, blues, and jazz allows her to perform in many different venues. She has produced three CDs and currently working on the fourth and fifth.
Dameron is also an environmental activist and in 2012 started her project Spaceship Earth: What Can I Do? Multimedia Presentations hoping to inspire folks to be better stewards of our beautiful planet Earth! Her song “What Can I Do?” made it to the top ten finalists in the 2011 Tipperary World Peace Song Contest. She passed the first round of auditions for America’s Got Talent in Denver in December 2013. In 2015 she was elected chair of Environmental and Sustainability Development for BPW Colorado and is past chair for NFBPWC (National Federation of Business and Professional Women Clubs). In 2017 she was awarded “Trailblazer Woman of the Year” at BPW Boulder’s biggest annual event Celebration of Women.
“Dameron’s playing is a nice blend of old school Jazz Guitar, Rock n’ Roll double stops, and swing blues. Her Guitar tone is crisp and smooth, giving her just enough bite for when she does her Bluesy Jazz thang…” —Lyle Robinson, Jazz Guitar Life Magazine
“Based in Colorado, Dameron has an echoey acoustic sound on her guitar that is slightly reminiscent of Pat Metheny at times. Her music is soothing, danceable (but with subtle rhythms) and pleasing.” —Scott Yanow, Los Angeles Jazz Scene
