Singer-Songwriter Laura Michelle Makes Recording Debut with New Single, 'Chuck Norris'
L.A. singer-songwriter Laura Michelle is set to land a musical knockout blow with her premiere single, "Chuck Norris," a whimsical pop anthem about unleashing the Kung-Fu master that lies within us all. Co-written by Laura and Writer-Producer Jim McGorman, the single "Chuck Norris" is available now on iTunes - the first song off of Laura's upcoming debut album, "Novel with No End," releasing spring 2013.
The music video skyrocketed past one million YouTube views in its first week. Co-directed by Kurt Zendzian and Max Moraga and shot at iconic L.A. locales such as Hollywood Boulevard and the beaches of Santa Monica, the video is a witty commentary on the song's central message of self-acceptance. A proud prankster herself, Laura co-conceived the video's concept, which features her at the roller rink, jogging along the shore and navigating Hollywood Boulevard dressed as Snow White.
The new single and album was executive produced by two-time Grammy winner Jarrett Zellea (Luther Vandross, Santana, Jay-Z). Jim McGorman (Avril Lavigne, Shakira) co-produced and co-wrote several tracks with Laura. Multi-Grammy-winner Rafa Sardina engineered and mixed, while a Stellar group of musicians played with Laura on the new album, including guitarist/pianist Jim McGorman, drummer Mark Slutsky (Pink, Grace Potter, Kylie Minogue) and bassist Jon Button (Roger Daltrey, Sheryl Crow, Shakira).
