Laura Hickli (Mohkínstsis/Calgary) is an internationally touring baroque pop songstress known for her dreamy, tightly-arranged soundscapes, exquisite vocals, evocative lyrics and her emotionally powerful performances. A classically trained pianist and member in several award-winning musical projects including Carla J. Easton and 36?, Hickli’s latest material has struck a spellbinding balance of spectral intimacy and bombast explosivity. Described as ‘indomitable,’ Laura Hickli will shatter any expectations of the way a piano should be played, a voice should be lifted, or a life should be lived.
'Unholy Power', her latest release on Montana’s North Pole Records, is the lead single off of Laura Hickli’s new record “Both Feet in the World, At Least I Can Stand”. Since it's recent release it has received radio play on several major radio stations including BBC and CBC and was added to several official Spotify playlists including Canada's Official Exclaim Eh! List. In 'Unholy Power' Hickli's unique ancient hymnal and classical roots meet her art-rock/baroque-pop appetite, further elevating her latest sound with pristine experimental production in the likes of Weyes Blood, Lana Del Ray and Phoebe Bridgers whilst nailing the sincerity and attitude of iconic artists like Kate Bush, Bjork and Fiona Apple.
