Laura Cantrell is a Nashville-born country music artist based in New York City with a long appreciation of the UK country audience. Her new album “No Way There From Here,” her first album of original material in eight years features eleven new original songs and was recorded in Nashville. In her ten-year recording career, Cantrell has released the acclaimed albums: “Not The Tremblin’ Kind,” “When The Roses Bloom Again,” “Humming By The Flowered Vine” and “Kitty Wells Dresses: Songs of the Queen of Country Music.” She has toured extensively in the United Kingdom, Europe and Ireland, and was a favorite of pioneering British disc jockey John Peel, who called her 2000 album “Not The Tremblin’ Kind” “my favorite record of the last ten years, possibly my life.” Cantrell recorded several Peel sessions for the BBC from 2000-2004 and appeared on the first Peel Day program on Radio One commemorating the first anniversary of Peel’s death.
