Laura Jean Anderson
Laura Jean Anderson, born in Olympia, Washington and now residing in Los-Angeles, is an artist with her feet rooted in old American music from soul to folk/americana to rock n roll, while embracing pushing the boundaries of modern music. Her weekly shows across Los Angeles have established her as a staple of the LA music scene, garnering support from KCRW, and having LA Weekly proclaim that her music as a “timeless sound… a mysterious conception that sounds as it’s from another era." Laura Jean recently finished recording her debut album with producer Tyler Chester in Los Angeles.
For producer / vocalist / and multi-instrumentalist Dot, a fusion of electronic, indie rock, and R&B elements has awarded her a role as a one of the scene's most respected emerging talents. Whether providing cutting edge beats as part of LA beat collective Team Supreme, or fulfilling her role as founder of her own female focused music label Unspeakable Records, Dot is a champion for the often unsung female producer. Her music has been praised by the best in tastemaker media, including features in Pitchfork, LA Weekly, Okayfuture, MTV Brazil, C-Heads Magazine, Nest HQ, Rookie, LA Record, The 405, and more.
Born and raised in Olympia, WA, Dot’s upbringing in the Pacific Northwest and background in classical music had a profound impact on her current aesthetics and influences. She moved to Southern California at the age of 17 to study classical music at the Conservatory of Music at Chapman University, which quickly led to her immersion in the LA beat scene and signing to Alpha Pup Records.
Dot debuted her first live set at Low End Theory, the infamous hip-hop/electronic night at The Airliner in Los Angeles. She continues to tour regularly as a live performer, gracing the stages of world-famous venues including The El Rey Theater (LA) The Echoplex (LA), The Observatory OC, Output (New York), and Home Club (Singapore). When she's not traveling, Dot holds down a DJ residency at the Ace Hotel Los Angeles.
In addition to her solo work, Dot produces for artists including SZA (TDE) and Teri GenderBender (Le Butcherettes, Bosnian Rainbows), and writes original music for film and television (MTV and OWN). Dot's extensive knowledge of music production and creative strategies also led to her participation as a panelist at Loop Berlin: Ableton’s summit for music makers.
Former singer/vocalist and songwriter in the band The Qemists.
