“Premo’s sense of touch and tone are impeccable” – Aquarium Drunkard
Laurel Premo is a Michigan-based roots musician who weaves sonic landscapes on fingerstyle electric guitar, lap steel, old-time fiddle and voice. The glowing heartiness and rich grit of her sound reveal a love of and complete submersion in heavy archaic roots—from the crossover of old-time and blues American traditions to darker Nordic sounds. MTV News described Premo’s new solo record 'Golden Loam' as “subtle but dazzling and rich in texture. Watching a live performance is pure hypnosis.” (10/08/21) With ruminant power, a masterful use of space, and the glint of the untethered wild, Laurel Premo bears renewed electric dirt - the golden loam layered by centuries of folk. Premo is known for her work over the past decade with the internationally touring duo Red Tail Ring.
