Westerly native Laura Dowding, who graduated from Westerly High School and went on to receive her bachelor's in music composition, has continued to pursue a music career ever since. She has traveled all over the country and played for thousands of people in in New York, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Atlanta, Boston, at The Wolf Den at Mohegan Sun and for the Chorus of Westerly's Summer Pops.

Last year, she released an EP called "G R O W N," about life, love and relationships. This year she has created a gofundmepage to help her with the next step in her journey: the hope of connecting with a major record label.

"I am so thankful for my gift of music," says Laura. "I truly have always believed it has such a deep calling to inspire, love, and empower all types of people given the opportunity to reach them, and with this platform it will be able to."
