The Laws are John
and Michele Law, husband and wife
singers, songwriters and first-class instrumentalists
from Ontario, Canada. Natural chemistry between
musicians is largely beyond manipulation: it either
materializes and ignites or it doesn't.
The Laws have
chemistry to spare!
This dynamic couple exploded onto the Canadian music
scene in 2000 with the release of their first
independent CD. They received rave reviews across the
country, 1/2 page spotlight articles in major national
newspapers and sold-out shows across the country; not
bad for their first tour!
They were invited to play all of the prominent
festivals in Canada and toured extensively through
their home country, perfecting their live performance,
before heading south. In fact, it was during this
first cross Canada tour that they were spotted by an
Australia booking agent who booked them on the spot!
They've since completed 3 highly successful tours in
that country, having most recently played main stage
at National, Port Fairy and Fairbridge Folk Festivals
and appearing on national television.
The Laws first foray into the United States in 2003
took them to the South West Folk Alliance Conference
in Austin, TX, where they were immediately booked by
every presenter in attendance! In Texas they've gone
from opening act to headline attraction in 2 short
years and were invited to perform main stage at the
prestigious Kerrville Folk Festival 2004 and 2005
performing on the closing night and introduced as "
Texans by way of Canada".
The Laws are instantly recognizable by their
bluegrass-infused "tight-as-a-glove" harmony singing.
John & Micheles songs cross the boundaries of
country, folk, bluegrass and blues and are at home
sharing the stage with everyone from Lonestar to
Emmylou Harris to Randy Bachman.
