Born one of five kids in Olympia, Laura Jean was raised strictly Mormon, a stark dichotomy that inflicts her art to this day with a deep-seated poignancy. By her mid-teens, she began to form her own differing views and music was her first outlet for rebellion.

Honing her vocal skill in church choirs through childhood, she continued songwriting and performing and eventually decided music was not just a hobby, it was her life and purpose. After studying classical voice at California Institute of the Arts, she made her way working odd jobs, busking, and playing live in any capacity - a testament to her reverence and embodiment of classic blue collar musicians of yore (Nina Simone, Janis Joplin, etc) who built careers on painstaking hard work and rooted in all things live.

Signed to Red Light Management, she self-released a collection of songs titled Righteous Girl in 2016 and went on to writing fresh new material that would become the EP Lonesome No More.

LJA Has already teased 3 singles from the EP, all of which have secure online premieres - Noisey praised "2018 has been badly in need of an electrifying, don't-fuck-with-me power ballad, and now we've got LA songstress Laura Jean Anderson here to bestow it upon us."
