about

Laurie Raveis / 101, released Oct 2013, comprises six textural, lyrical landscapes and honest, heart diving original tunes. Laurie sings and plays acoustic, electric, high octave, baritone, 12 string and sitar guitar. She is joined by Matt Smith; producer, bass & lap steel; Bryan Austin drums and David Webb; keyboards.

"Thanksgiving" is a beautifully crafted story with a catchy pre-chorus and emotionally uplifting chorus. "Cowgirl" takes a twist from the simple joys of childhood freedom underlined by a country double feel beat, to a harsh reality exposed reminiscent of Pink Floyd. The rock girl empowerment anthem, "Hey Girls" is a driving force with a vocals/boogaloo breakdown for an added 'umph' - to do your thing! "Just Begun" is a relaxed, island feel with the ease and excitement of a new relationship contrasted by the untimely mourning of it's sweet and ultimate end. Blues rock number "Let me think" uncovers the thinkers from the doers and gives way to a breaking point of the relationship. " Here's a Chance" is a folk rock tune that visits the past and builds with passion to reclaim life and oneself.

Laurie Raveis also performs as 'Raveis Kole' (raveiskole.com) with guitarist, Dennis Kole.

Raveis Kole’s upcoming Summer Album Release, "Electric Blue Dandelion,” will feature lyrical heart, driving rhythms of rock, reggae and latin based beats with an open, airy feel of Debussy chordal progressions intermixed with both western and eastern scales. "Electric Blue Dandelion" will feature some of their most popular performance songs: "Holding Onto a Rainbow", "Dawn Breaks Through" and "Fearless," as well as a top secret surprise offering. Shh!

Laurie Raveis was the 2014 Berklee Online Scholarship winner at Crown of the Continent Guitar Workshop and Festival in Big Fork, Montana. This winter, she volunteered as a band coach and guitar instructor at Bellingham Girls Rock Camp.

Track Name: Thanksgiving (Feel Like Home)
A thanksgiving without family
I met you at a table of friends
I was closed and raw emotionally
Seemed this heaviness might never end

You kept smiling in a sweet shy way
Then you said something so damn silly
I eyes caught the same sun ray
We were too unknowing still

I knew, I knew, I knew you before
I knew, I knew, I knew you

Yea, you feel like home
Baby, you feel like home
Yea, you feel like home
to me

By the ocean wrapped under the stars
dissolving you and me into the air and sky above
A discovery of who we are
Such a mystery love

And I knew, I knew, I knew you before
I knew, I knew, I knew you

Yea you feel like home
Baby, you feel like home
Yea, you feel like home
to me
Track Name: Cowgirl
Fine young cowgirl living a life humbly
Use to ride up on the western front
Wild horses and fields of green
Living life like a stream

Every Sunday, we would play by the big oak tree
She’d ride into town with a stack of daisies
Stories told, hands hold, ring of rosie
All fall down, laughing and rollin around

Every Sunday, we would play by the big oak tree
She’d ride into town with a stack of daisies
Stories told, hands hold. ring of rosie
All fall down, laughing and rollin around

Stopped dead in our tracks
Church bells in the air
Cowgirls hands tied behind her back
Big Buckles
Sunday dress
Hate in their eyes
Silver in hand
Oh, Yellin so loud
I heard nothing
Track Name: Hey Girls
Hey Girls
Do your thing
Hey Girls
Own it when the sun is shining
Do your thing
Even when the rain is pouring
Hey

Give it all, Give it all, Give all
That you bring

Media’s watching
no mistakes
What’s in now
oh so fake
Don’t they know
plastic flowers don’t grow
Don’t they know
plastic flowers don’t grow

Feel
it’s good to be real

Hey Girls
Do your thing
Hey Girls
Own it when the sun is shining
Do your thing
Even when the rain is pouring
Hey, Love is rising

Own it all, Be it all, Give all
That you bring

Media is huffing and puffing
blow me down
What’s feeding the frenzy
got no ground
Don’t they see
plastic flower ain’t me (are not me)
Don’t they see
plastic flowers ain’t we (are not me)

We feel
it's good to be real

A Real Flower needs
the mud and the dirt
wind the the rain
loss and the gain
the moon and sun
joy and the hurt
the bees and bugs
Love and the hugs
Love and the hugs

Hey Girls
Do your thing
Hey Girls
Own it when the wind is howling
Do your thing
Even when the bugs are crawling

Give it all, Be it all, Love all
That you bring!
Track Name: Let me Think
Like a steamin locomotive train
He only said, over and over this one word chain

Let me think about it
Let me think about it baby
Let me think about it
Is all he ever said

Nothing grew, nothing changed
Once this way, always the same
Nothing, nothing
Once this way, always the same
Nothing grew, nothing changed
Once this way
always the same
same, same

I knew he was thinkin’
an absent blank stare
keepin’ so busy
connected no where

His mind took over
I tried to get thru
he was so hooked
rather think than do

Let me think about it
Let me think about it baby
Let me think about it
Is all he ever said

knew he was thinkin’
an absent blank stare
keepin’ so busy
connected no where

His mind took over
I tried to get thru
he was so hooked
rather think than do
rather think than do

Well I gotta do
Even if it’s without you
Gotta grow, something’s changed
Gotta grow, something’s changed
Track Name: Just Begun
Singin' 'n strummin' and carryin' on
You Parachute in from no oxygen
Mind dismantles, it’s come undone
Body melts, you’re the one

Is this real or like a jackalope
Cool off baby, sud the soap
Wrestling out of that rodeo rope
Squashing old negative no no nope
Crazy for you

Lay your sweet groove on me
Lucky sevens holds the key
Open the door to destiny
Here’s how real love can be

Sauteen n’ makin a roux
Let’s cook tonite n’ rock a fais do do
Play all night, another lick or two
Breads risin’ high, crazy voodoo

Layin' bare in the sun
Sway in the salty, sweet ocean
We’d just begun
We’d just begun
We’d just begun
I want to be with you

Mercury risin’ nice n’ hot
Bendin’, shakin’ give it all you got
Bippitty bop bop bop on the lot
Stokin’ n’ fusing a musical megawatt

At last, we’re weavin' our song
Groovin’ with you is where I belong
Never knew a love so strong
We’re so right and so wrong

Layin' bare in the sun
Sway in the salty, sweet ocean
We’d just begun
We’d just begun
We’d just begun
Want to be with you
Track Name: Here's A Chance
Time's gone by
I breathe another red sigh
I've been drifting, living a lie
Storms rising up inside
For a long, long time

Is there someone who sees
I've been burnin' in a red freeze
Feel no gift, my spirit flees
Lay me down in the breeze
Such a low, low, time

A wave washes over me
I'm awake subtlely
Going in just to be
Here's a chance to be free
Here's a chance to be free

Time's gone by
I breathe another red sigh
I've been drifting living a lie
Storms rising up inside
For a long, long time

A wave washes over me
I'm awake finally
Headed out just to be
Here's a chance to be free
Here's a chance to be free
I want to be free
Live a life that's good inside
I want to be free
Sail, soar, accept the ride
I want to be free and easy
Gonna take a chance
