Laurelle Augustyn

Checked out a food bank fundraiser event organized by part-time musician Derek Christie at Archibalds in Richmond Hill, Ontario on December 7th, 2013. Derek’s colleague Laurelle Augustyn performed solo with Derek Christie providing back up guitar that afternoon. Her music was folk and rock influenced but had a touch of soul to it. Her playlist included all originals namely: I’m Here, Unsaid, Lullaby and I Am Your’s. I asked Laurelle what each of the songs was about after the set and she replied ‘To get into what each one is about would take a bit of time and filtering probably. Suffice it to say that each song is highly personal and reflective of both circumstance and emotions. The last song, “I Am Your’s” is more of a resolve to settle into my identity of belonging to God Himself.’
