Dead Bird Lady is a solo cathartic folk project led by French-Mexican multi-instrumentalist, based in Stoke-on-Trent, England.

From the project‘s creation in Iceland in 2018, to the transition to France and finally finding a home in Staffordshire, Dead Bird Lady slowly morphed into her final shape, merging her fascination for folklore and alternative music with a mix of string instruments and electric effect pedals.

You may hear in her bewitching vocals and harmony-drenched melodies the echoes of artists such as Tori Amos, Grizzly Bear, and November Ultra.

And what about this name? Dead Bird Lady’s tale is a long story involving an old Icelandic house, a stuffed ptarmigan and emotional reconstruction. Dead Bird Lady is Laura’s alter-ego, the one who dares sing all her secrets out loud.

In 2021 she releases February, a first ballad inspired by her Icelandic years, and in 2022 she wins the Grand Jury prize at Icart Sessions on national French radio.

Her new single Pollen is coming out on 20th October 2023, a first chapter to her upcoming EP “The Granny House“, set for release at the end of the year.
