The Oregon songwriter’s 12th album is replete with beautifully crafted songs that celebrate fresh starts and new beginnings.

The Guardian

The Portland singer-songwriter’s first album written after splitting from her husband and longtime producer is a candid confessional filled with headily intimate images.

PopMatters

Laura Veirs’ songs on Found Light are more inquisitive and exploratory (and even experimental) than previously, and it’s the first time she’s co-produced her music.

Reclaiming your life comes with anxieties and missteps as well as moments of bliss and self-realization. Found Light has it all.

A cute piece of folksy music, if you like Alela Diane or Vashti Bunyan you will probably like this as well!

A bit overlong, perhaps, but crammed full of ideas and genuine heart.
