Pittsburgh native LAURA ROZDAY was first introduced to the microphone in her father’s home studio as a child. It was here that she first discovered the golden oldies. Raised on Doo Wop, Motown, and R&B, Laura has honed her vocal talents becoming a soul powerhouse. “Laura Rose” Rozday charted locally produced singles(“Kansas City”, “I Want a Man Who Can Dance With Me”) featuring Pittsburgh’s own William Dell and the Wee Jams on the beach music scene in the Carolinas. Here at home she continues to enjoy performing locally with the Pittsburgh Doo Wop Big Band where she shares her passion for music with the fabulous oldies fans of the ‘Burgh.
