Laura Hickli (Mohkínstsis/Calgary) is an internationally touring baroque pop songstress known for her dreamy, tightly-arranged soundscapes, exquisite vocals, evocative lyrics and her emotionally powerful performances. A classically trained pianist and member in several award-winning musical projects including Carla J. Easton and 36?, Hickli’s latest material has struck a spellbinding balance of spectral intimacy and bombast explosivity.

Hickli just released her heavy-hitting second album ‘Both Feet In The World, At Least I Can Stand‘ through North Pole Records (MT) on October 7, 2022. Exploring her departure from religion, this somber and experimental record features songs which she recorded at The Banff Centre For Arts and Creativity during her 2018 BMiR residency and is co-produced by her partner Taylor Cochrane (36?).

Described as ‘indomitable,’ Laura Hickli will shatter any expectations of the way a piano should be played, a voice should be lifted, or a life should be lived.
