Raised in Iowa City and Madison, Wis., Laube is described as "an outstanding singer with a sultry, soulful sound in the Norah Jones mold," says Americana UK magazine. Laube's debut CD, "Outta My Head" on Ginkgo Records, is a combination of living room and studio recordings. SF Station newspaper says the album "never fails to seduce with a plethora of beautifully written, authentic tracks and talent that is unquestionable."

The show will be broadcast on Iowa Public Radio Saturday, Aug. 18 and Sunday, Aug. 19. To view a full calendar of upcoming "Java Blend" performances and broadcasts, see and scroll to "Java Blend."
