Laura grew up in Bloomington, Indiana, where she took flute and voice lessons from faculty members of the Indiana University School of Music. While an undergraduate at Columbia University in New York, she participated in musical theater productions both as a singer/actress and as a flutist in the pit orchestra. After graduation, she moved to the San Francisco Bay Area, where she pursued graduate musical and literature studies at Holy Names University.
Today, in addition to performing with Resonance, she plays flute and sings with the Laura Wiley Quartet. Laura has recorded four musical cds, and one audio cd of her one-woman show Panic! which she wrote and performed at the San Francisco Fringe Festival. She has never held a driver’s license, and is now working on a one-woman show called Driven Bananas, about having a driving phobia.
When Laura isn’t singing, playing her flute or working on one-woman shows, she is probably writing or drawing. Her music website is at www.lauraaustinwiley.com, and you can buy her latest CD at CD Baby.
