Release: Laurie Morvan - Gravity Februari 2018  Blues/Rock
Screaming Lizard Records  

GRAVITY is the 6th release from Blues Foundation Award winner Laurie Morvan.  So much more than just a wailin’ guitar slinger, Laurie is a charismatic performer who is both powerful and inviting.  Her songwriting has a fresh perspective, and takes the listener through an appealing range of human emotions spanning joy, desire, love, humor, loss,  introspection and acceptance. 
Produced by Tony Braunagel who also played drums , GRAVITY features performances by blues industry heavyweights Bob Glaub, Mike Finnigan, Barry Goldberg, and Jim Pugh.  Tony and crew have recorded and toured with blues and rock greats such as Bonnie Raitt, Robert Cray, Taj Mahal, Etta James, Jackson Brown, Phantom Blues Band,

Magic Sam inspired slow blues of Stay With Me.  Money Talks reveals Laurie’s humorous side and features the rollicking piano work of Barry Goldberg.  The Extra Mile is a rocker fueled by Laurie’s explosive wah wah guitar solo, followed by the title track Gravity, which showcases both her expansive, spatial guitar work and Jim Pugh’s textural, beautiful keyboard playing.
Overcoming hardship with positivity radiates from the driving groove of Dance in the Rain and back-porch-pulsing blues of Gotta Dig Deep.  The Man Who Left Me is a haunt
theme of Shake Your Tailfeathers is standing tall to rise above, and Laurie’s guitar solo pays loving, respectul homage to the late great B.B. King.  I Want Answers is a gritty, plaintive call to demanding action.  The  combination of hypnotic groove and swampy slide guitar work in Too Dumb to Quit provides the canvas for Laurie’s tongue-in-cheek questioning of why we keep doing things we know are bad for us.
