Laura Melanie Collins (Vocals, piano/keyboards, acoustic guitar, composer, songwriter) was playing in bars before she was old enough to drink in them. After fronting cover bands all over New York City, Laura headed west and headlong into the Denver music scene. 

A move to the wilds of Northern New Mexico inspired a prolific writing period. It was here that she founded “Blue Moon Prairie,” a female music trio with harmonies that had listeners calling them “a female Crosby, Stills & Nash.” In 2011, they released their CD "Stories and Lies," and played regionally. Laura released her solo effort "An American Landscape" in 2016. 

Most recently, Laura calls upstate New York home and spends her time as a full time musician/performer and composer.
