Sultry. Sweet. Sexy. This is L.A. Turcotte.
"True passion can be felt behind each chord played on the keys. The raw emotion hangs and drips from each melancholy note or a smile can be seen illuminating a room - depending on the mood of the song.
Needless to say, you feel whatever this artist is feeling. You are brought into her thoughts, her world, her heart.
You have been captivated."
~ Jeannie Reid, Director, Music City North
