About Laura-Simone

Laura-Simone Martin is an 18-year-old bassist who has performed at nationally acclaimed venues like the BBC Proms, Carnegie Hall, Blue Note at Sea, the Kennedy Center, Monterey Jazz Festival, and more. This past summer, she was a part of Carnegie Hall‚Äôs National Youth Jazz Orchestra, where she toured Europe with Sean Jones and 2x Grammy winning vocalist, Dee Dee Bridgewater. She has also been in Princeton University's Creative Large Ensemble and Jazz At Lincoln Center's Youth Orchestra. In her junior year of high school, she combined her passions for music and activism by founding the Queen Amina Music Program to help push the ‚Äúwomen in jazz‚ÄĚ music movement. This program is for 4th-8th grade instrumentalists at the Lawrence Intermediate School and Lawrence Middle School, where she teaches songs, the history of women in jazz, improvisational skills, and how to navigate modal progressions. This past year she received a grant to invite guest artists and hold a day of masterclasses for the Queen Amina students and the Lawrence High School music department, ending with a public concert on March 15, 2023, featuring Oscar winner and Grammy-nominated saxophonist Tia Fuller. Currently she is freshman at Michigan State University studying under renowned bassist, Rodney Whitaker.
