Dr. Laura Harrison, professor at Cypress College, is originally from Vancouver, B.C., Canada. She completed her Doctorate of Musical Arts degree at USC. She has been a member of the Pacific Chorale and John Alexander Singers since 2001 and a member of "de Angelis Vocal Ensemble" since 2006. In August of 2010, she debuted her first jazz CD that has been played in forty-three states and thirteen countries, climbing to #18 on the CMJ Jazz National Chart. Her heaviest radio play areas are fourteen stations in the greater New York City area, followed by Minneapolis, Minnesota, and Memphis Tennessee.

Says Geannine Reid of EJazzNews: "Harrison has put together a skillfully crafted offering with every part of the musical jazz spectrum weaved into a brilliantly colored canvas. A strong debut from a seasoned professional, Laura Harrison is certainly Now…Here and we are keeping her."
