Laura Fernandez

Singer-songwriter and artist Laura Fernandez was born in Madrid, Spain, lived in Switzerland as a child, spent her youth in Calgary and now resides here in Toronto while travelling worldwide. True to her international roots, Laura writes songs in English and Spanish and her musical compositions are a reflection of her many influences. In 2013, she was named to the distinguished Steinway artist roster, becoming its 20th Canadian member. In 2015, she was named one of the 10 most influential Hispanic Canadians at a Pan American Games ceremony.

Laura is also an award-winning artist and illustrator, and has published many children’s books. Her work has been seen internationally on billboards, ads and packaging as well as in books and magazines. She has painted many portraits and her work hangs in private collections and in museums.

Laura comes to JAZZ.FM91 as a passionate enthusiast of jazz, and especially Latin Jazz, which has surrounded her throughout her life and is a part of her cultural upbringing. She is honoured to be part of the JAZZ.FM91 team and hopes to share the love and passion she has for this music with Café Latino listeners everywhere!

Laura can be heard on Café Latino on Saturdays from 4 to 7 pm.
