Laura Benedict, Singer/Singer/Singer
by Gary Powell
The first time I heard Laura Benedict Scott sing was in the mid 1980’s at an Austin club “Toulouse” on 6th Street. She had a commanding stage presence and was ripping Aretha Franklin’s “Think” like no other singer I had ever heard. Laura has been an important part of my studio ever since.
Laura has performed across the country with the popular Austin band, “Rotel and the Hot Tomotoes”, for twenty years. With them, Laura has made two separate appearances performing at the White House for President Bush. Laura has also been featured in starring roles at Zachary Scott Theatre Center, in Austin for the shows “Beehive”, “Rockin’ Christmas Party”, “Soul Sisters” and an amazing performance as Pasty Cline in “Always Patsy Cline”.
Laura is currently working with her new group Three Blondes, which is performing at Austin conventions and gala events. Her natural talent for R&B, session skills, work ethic and loyalty make her a “first-call” singer in my studio. I’m so proud to have Laura Benedict associated with my long history as an Austin music producer.
