On Saturday, January 28th 2017; those who are in attendance at Iconic Doug Fir Lounge in Portland, Oregon, will experience something unlike anything they have experienced before; an evening with transcendent singer-songwriter, Laura Ivancie. The words "Soulful," "Eclectic," "Seductive," and more, have all been used to attempt to describe the Portland-born artist; but none of those words come close because she is all of those things and much, much more. The showcase has been specifically designed to demonstrate the artist's unparalleled versatility,with a first set comprised of Soul/R&B songs, during which she will be accompanied by Seattle natives: Gerald and Thaddeus Turner, Darrius Willrich, and Conrad Real. Those who follow the NW music scene will undoubtedly recognize those names; they are currently touring Europe as the band for legendary 90’s Hip-Hop group, "Digable Planets.” Ivancie will then follow that first set with an all-acoustic set, where the audience will be treated to the unique genius of her songwriting and the vocal talents that allowed her to open for the likes of David Ryan Harris, Ladi6, and The Indigo Girls--even though at that time she had barely scratched the surface of her capabilities. Last, but certainly not least, there will be a third and final set of songs that would best be classified as"Soul/Rock." Laura will be joined in this set by some of the best musicians Portland has ever produced, including: Oregon Hall of Fame guitarist, Jay "Bird" Koder; bass player, Gary Fountaine, of Portland Icon NU SHOOZ fame; Ramsey Embick, whose keyboard accomplishments are too numerous to mention; spanning a career that includes being the keyboard player and musical director for 70’s/80’s super group, “The Pointer Sisters,” and finally; Tyrone Hendrix, who is widely regarded as one of the best drummers in the NW. Although she will mix in a few covers in tribute to artists who have been an inspiration in her life, the evening will mostly be comprised of Laura Ivancie originals, written and arranged by Ivancie herself. So come join the party, and see for yourself what all the fuss is all about.. those of you who do, will not soon forget it!
