Canadian singer-songwriter Laura Smith (1952-2020) is deeply missed by all who knew and worked with her, along with thousands that loved her music. In 2019, Laura initiated a recording project that would be a "best of" album to showcase songs from her earlier work. Laura was diagnosed with inoperable cancer that winter and the project took on an urgency and a wider scope. Undeterred by her illness, Laura booked studio time in her hometown of Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia to record two new songs. She garnered the strength to record the new material just a few weeks before her death. Archival material from her coffee house days in London, Ontario, an amazing jazz session in Hamilton, a demo session in Toronto, along with the new songs - and fan-favourites - make up an 18-song package that features Laura's artwork and poetry. Laura Smith has left us with a body of work that will be treasured for years
