Album Description and CD Linear Notes
Laurie Goldsmith has been working as an award-winning performing songwriter and as a well-known freelance musician in the Boston area for over twenty years. The Laurie Goldsmith Project performs for both private and public performances and includes originals and well known jazz standards, blues, reggae and latin instrumentals. “Going Through The Motions”©2015 is a collection of love songs and her first studio album of original material since 1993. Laurie gathered fellow musicians from the Boston area to assist her on the project, some of whom she has known for many years, and others she is just forging connections with. The music reflects the different genres that she has loved and performed for over two decades. “Going Through The Motions” offers to the listener a point of connection in the universal experience of falling and being in love. As a lyricist, she is most interested in using her voice as an instrument to tell the story within each song.
