birdheat (Laurie Anne Fuhr) is a singer-songwriter and poet based in Calgary who sings about experiences we often share but seldom talk about. Heartfelt, quirky, and lyrically-driven, her eclectic sound is influenced by female artists of the eras - from wartime standards and vocal jazz, to classic country and Western Swing, into coffeehouse folk - and even a little 90's indie shoegaze (think Belly and Lisa Loeb). Imagine an artist influenced by the wise melancholy of Patti Page, the aching heart of Patsy Cline, the wry humour of Little Miss Higgins, the emotional intelligence of Sarah Harmer, and the imagist poetry of Leonard Cohen and John K. Samson, and you'll understand how Laurie came to be.
