Laura Pieri is a cinematic pop artist based in New York.

Born in São Paulo, Brazil, where she lived until the age of 16, Laura Pieri always dreamed of being a pop star. In 2014, she moved to America and split her time between New York and Los Angeles to further her education and simultaneously pursue a music career. She moved to New York at 16 to further her education and to pursue a music career.

During her time in New York, Pieri focused on attending NYU’s Gallatin College of Individualized Study, while developing her artistry. Inspired by a wide array of artists, like Taylor Swift, Billie Eilish, Prince and Michael Jackson, Pieri hopes to blend her pop influences with her Brazilian roots, while using her songwriting to connect to others in the way that she felt connected to, just like when she was listening to Taylor Swift in middle school.

Her forthcoming 4-track EP, Frankie, came to be when Pieri was at the point of almost giving up on her career. Inspired by what her farewell to the industry should sound like, the story of Frankie, a woman reclaiming her power, was born. In an EP that cycles through the great, bad, good, and ugly of self-discovery, she rediscovers her voice. (out in the summer)

Laura’s music aims to blend pop influences with her Brazilian roots, while using her songwriting to connect to others as she establishes herself and explores her own femininity.

Inspired by the story of the goddess Persephone, “Daughter of Demeter” is a mesmerizing, cinematic pop anthem.

I never really understood why I felt so connected to Persephone, the goddess and the myth. In my moments of deep despair, I always found myself calling to her energy,” Pieri explains. “This song, and video, are fantastical versions of what that feels like. They’re also a puzzle piece that fit into a larger picture of the story of a young girl coming to terms with her own self, her story, and who she is.”
