i could still go there
but my mind would be too loud
sun on water
bright colors drowning me out

raised in colorado, laura veirs decided it was time for a change. a few years ago, she moved to seattle, started rediscovering her love of folk and country music and self-recorded her inspired poetry until uk label, bella union, found her. at the end of the summer of 2005, laura released the album *year of meteors* — it didn’t leave my headphones for months. dreamy calming visuals simply appear within her lyrics amongst the different accompaning perfect sounds that instantly take over and hypnotize. listen to this and go on a train, plane, inside a car driving so far away, get lost and feel safe.

About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
