Laurence is a pianist from Sorel-Tracy in Quebec, Canada. She is currently smashing a PhD in piano performance at the University of Montreal, presumably and rightly, with a strong focus on classical sonata form and 1990s video game music. You can follow her musical adventures on Facebook and YouTube (and there are some more superb video game music arrangements there - so you should subscribe!).
