This 2012 debut solo album from two-time Tony Award nominated Laura Osnes features songs recorded live during her June 2012 engagement at the legendary Café Carlyle and features special guests Jeremy Jordan (Bonnie & Clyde, Newsies) and Tom Wopat (Catch Me If You Can) as well as her husband, Nathan Johnson. The album consists of an evening of songs culled from Broadway, the Great American Songbook, as well as from the worlds of jazz and folk. Her quartet was led by her Musical Director Fred Lassen on piano and featured Marc Copely on guitars, Pete Donovan on bass and Larry Lelli on drums. The engagement at the Carlyle was directed by Joe Langworth.


Ms. Osnes, who grew up in Eagan, Minn., outside St. Paul, is being called the new Julie Andrews. That comparison was bolstered by her strong, likable portrayal of Maria in a recent concert production of The Sound of Music. --The New York Times 

An evening that showcases a beautiful voice, personality and style. She sings her heart out - and melts yours. --New York Daily News 

Osnes' engagement at the Cafe Carlyle resplendently showcases her crystalline soprano, as well as the versatility that is making her the performer that producers turn to whether they need a gun-toting bank robber or an erudite heiress.... What might be most impressive about her work, which is backed by a terrific quartet led by Fred Lassen, is that she can take classics, long associated with some legendary singers, and make them her own. --Huffington Post
