Award-winning actress/singer/songwriter Laura Dreyfuss releases her debut EP "Peaks" via BMG on Friday. Produced by Michel Heyaca, Peaks is the sound of the multi-talented artist’s love of storytelling channeled into five irresistible pop songs with relatable themes of love, hope, and overcoming feelings of isolation tied to the pandemic.
Audiences have certainly seen Dreyfuss everywhere from the Tony® Award-winning Once and Broadway phenomenon Dear Evan Hansen to Glee, Amazon’s The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, and NETFLIX’s The Politician. Now with the release of Peaks, they’ll finally get to know the singer, songwriter, and actress like never before. Taking the reins, she presents her most unfiltered vision yet through engaging electronic-inflected indie-pop anthems rooted in candid lyricism and uplifted by dynamic vocals.
Including three previously released tracks and two new cuts, the Peaks EP reflects Dreyfuss’ evolution as an artist. “This EP really represents how I’ve found my voice as an artist and a person. So much has changed in my life in the last few years and these songs act like little journal entries throughout,” confides Dreyfuss.
Dreyfuss has quietly emerged as a rare multi-hyphenate whose undeniable presence on stage and on-screen belies identifiable vulnerability. Growing up, she learned piano and studied at Boston Conservatory. Establishing herself across theater and television, she went from a standout turn in Once to two years in Dear Evan Hansen. Along the way, she garnered various honors, including a 2018 GRAMMY® Award in the category of “Best Musical Theatre Album” for the Original Broadway Cast Recording of Dear Evan Hansen and a Daytime Creative EMMY® Award in the category of “Outstanding Musical Performance in a Daytime Program” for “You Will Be Found” as performed on The Today Show.
