Laureen Smith, Songwriter
Laureen Smith is recognized as an exciting new songwriter to hit the Nashville market in the last few years. Having had the privilege of writing with Grammy, Country Music Award and Dove Award songwriting nominees and winners, she focuses on building a catalog of strong songs in Christian, Pop, and Country. Numerous artists including Point of Grace, Dove Award Female Artist of the Year Cindy Morgan and American Idol finalist Scott MacIntyre, have recorded her songs and she has several cuts already expected this upcoming year including a duet with American Idol Finalist Skylar Lane.
Known for her preparation, Laureen comes to appointments with a hook, strong storyline and a melodic groove. She has researched the market, charts and detailed elements of her co-writers history, making writing appointments efficient and productive. “I have never set Laurie up for a co-write session that the co-writer has not called me to thank me,” says Chaz Corzine, Michael W. Smith Group Partner.
Affiliated with BMI, she owns her own publishing company and is a member of Global Songwriters Connection as well as National Songwriters Association International. She feels humbled to be a part of this creative community and blessed to call her talented co-writers dear friends.
