Laurie Story Vela has been a writer, singer and performer her whole life. In addition to creating the wonderful world of Laurie''s Stories, she has written hundreds of songs and is now performing New Thought songs with her six year old son, Jeremiah. Laurie looks at life as a gift and music as an opportunity to feel JOY as well as connect more to the truth of who we are. Though Laurie''s life work has always been with and for children, her latest recordings are her first to sing out her stongly spiritual side encouraging youth and families to feel the LOVE present within and to express this beauty zealously and joyfully in the world.
The songs on Small After Small and on I Am A Seeker were recorded with some young friends from the Youth Choir Laurie put together at Spiritual Life Center, Sacramento. Small After Small is geared for the young and their families while I Am A Seeker is more for older youth and adults. Here are some comments:
"Laurie Story Vela is a songwriter and singer bubbling with creativity and energy. Her music is easy to learn, fun to sing and loaded with spiritual wisdom. The songs are wonderful with powerful affirmations that will be sung over & over by our children and adults as well. You cannot listen to them without smiling or tearing up."
