If you’re longing for some real music that you can feel in your heart, lyrics that speak to your soul, and a live performance with the power to blow the roof off the sky, you can stop right here. If you’re tired of all the staged choreography, blinding light shows, capes, costumes, lip-synching and auto-tunes that seems to have taken over live performances, you have found a place to rest, refresh, and renew. Welcome to the world of Laura Cheadle.
Along with her Family Band, she has opened for some of the biggest names in the business and won numerous awards, including “Best Indie Jazz/Blues Band” at WXPN sponsored Tri- State Indie Music Awards. She has performed on stages from NYC to London, appeared on 6ABC’s “Tuned In” as the very first viewer’s choice, the “NBC 10″ Show, and the National reality show “Next Great Family Band.” Laura was recently featured in Curve Magazine, named one of “100 Women We Love” in Go Magazine, and declared a “Super Woman” in South Jersey Magazine for her active Charity Work.
Never one to measure herself according to the trends of the times or the female singer “flavor of the month,” Laura has carved out her own lane since she began performing as a child, and she has done it the old-fashioned way, on pure talent. Gifted with a voice powerful enough to shake rafters, and tender enough to navigate the entire range of the emotional scale, Laura Cheadle is a singer commanding more than just a listen or a look. Her albums, like her concerts, are an experience. Inseparable from the truth of the songs she writes, the raw emotion that tears out of her reaches deep into your heart with the kind of performance we now only see in films like “Woodstock.”
With a vocal style that is a mesmerizing blend of soulful blues and timeless rock with both feet planted firmly in funk, she brings her own unique interpretation to every song she sings, regardless of the genre she takes on. Whether it’s a concert of her own material, a sophisticated cabaret show, or a monster blues jam at the close of a festival, what you see and hear is what you’ll always get: the undeniable and unmistakable sound of Laura Cheadle.
Laura Cheadle has opened for/shared the stage with The Jonas Brothers, Sister Hazel, The Spin Doctors, Average White Band, Felix Cavaliere’s Rascals, Kasim Sultan, John Oates/Hall and Oates, Terrance Simien, Peter Tork of The MONKEES,Garland Jeffreys, Constantine Maroulis, Ryan Cabrera, Derek Forbes, The Stars From The Commitments, John Sebastian and many more.

“Cheadle loves music and appreciates the tiny details that go into making a song more than just a melody and chords. Laura Cheadle makes singing seem easy. She’s teeming with the sort of soul that other artists can only dream of.” SKOPE Magazine
“Laura Cheadle is a young, jeans-wearing singer & multi-instrumentalist who writes songs in the coffeeshop-love-song tradition & renders them in a smooth-funky, B3 kind of way” Time Out NY
“..Not only does Laura have the voice and the looks to back up her musical talent, but she also has that indescribable “it” star quality that hoists her a level or two above most other extremely talented local acts.” Philadelphia Music Examiner
“LAURA CHEADLE is a young white woman with a big guitar. She shows that she has just as big a voice, in a way that would makes the likes of Bill Withers or the Reverend Al Green smile” Jersey Beat Magazine
