Laurelle Augustyn is an experienced artist and emerging singer-songwriter. While performing regularly at a variety of venues in York Region and the GTA, Laurelle is also working on her debut album, Lullaby.

Blending elements of folk, roots and rock music, Laurelle’s songs are intimate and soulful while navigating through heartache and despair towards hope and resolve. Her voice strikes a balance between strength and power and nuanced emotion with both clarity and grit.

Her voice carries with ease singing songs by artists such as Adele, Indigo Girls, Jennifer Knapp, Sheryl Crow, Bonnie Raitt and Joni Mitchell.
