Laura Good Biography

Laura Good is a composer/lyricist/producer and multi-instrumentalist. She co-founded the alternative pop band, The Twigs with her twin sister, Linda Good, in Chicago during the late ?90?s. Their band has released five CDs, many singles and videos and has performed all over the world. Her songs have been heard on TV, Radio and Film over the past two decades. She mixes her training in classical and jazz with her love of vintage pop, rock and anything else that strikes her fancy. Ms. Good has a degree in music composition from Columbia College where she studied composing, voice, piano and performance. She was a Weisman Memorial Scholar (in Music) and was fortunate enough to be mentored by jazz composers Doug Lofstrom and William Russo. She also played a key role in the creation of one of the first independent music subscription services on the internet (noisebox.com). Ms. Good's first full length musical, LADYSHIP, (written with her sister, Linda Good) was inspired by her years living in Australia. Based on true events from 1789, she combines her love of Irish music with her pop sensibilities, as LADYSHIP presents a story of women finding their voice amid impossible odds. LADYSHIP is an Official Grand Jury Selection for the NYMF 2019.

Earlier this week, the cast and creative team of the new musical LADYSHIP gave a special sneak peek of the upcoming show. LADYSHIP features a book, music, and lyrics by Laura and Linda Good. Is it a crime to survive? Convicted of petty crimes and sentenced to journey to a land they had never known, teenage Irish sisters Alice and Mary are forced to make the treacherous crossing from London to Australia in 1789. With a contemporary alt/pop score by Linda and Laura Good of the band the Twigs,LadyShip reminds us that whether in the 18th century or now, this story is all too familiar - when given no say in their lives or the world around them women will always find their own voice. Based on true events, this is the harrowing story of the 25,000 women who would become the "mothers of Australia," whether they wanted to be or not.
