Laura Veirs is an American singer-songwriter living in Portland. Veirs was raised in Colorado, studied geology and Mandarin Chinese at Carleton College, worked as a translator for a geological expedition in China.

While growing up, she heard folk-country, classical, and pop music at home. However, she didn’t “listen seriously,” she says, until her 20s.At Carleton, she joined an all-girl punk band called Rair Kx!. After graduation, her taste moved to older country and folk, and during her time in China she began writing lyrics. In 1999, Veirs released a self-titled album, which was recorded live and featuring just herself and guitar. 2003 saw the release of Troubled by the Fire, accompanied by veteran musicians such as Bill Frisell. She then signed to Nonesuch and released Carbon Glacier. Year of Meteors followed in August 2005. Year of Meteors was selected by the New York Times as a “critics choice.”
