Very few artists can claim to have started their career in music at the top, but as a founding member of the universally-acclaimed Manhattan Transfer, that is exactly what Laurel Massé did. With her lush, expressive voice, absolute pitch, flawless diction and ready wit, the statuesque redhead left an indelible mark on the group. She toured internationally with the Transfer for seven years, recording four albums (certified gold and platinum) and the movie soundtrack of "Just a Gigolo", which starred David Bowie, Kim Novak, and Marlene Dietrich in her final screen appearance.
Ms. Massé also sang for two years as a member of the professional choir of the Cathedral of St. John the Divine on Manhattan's Upper West Side. Laurel Massé joined Project Rushmore Theatre Company in 2010, and has been cast in readings of Beth Henley's "Crimes of the Heart" (as Lenny), A.R. Gurney's "The Snow Ball" (older Kitty), and Shakespeare's "King Lear" (Cordelia). Laurel Massé is an ASCAP writer and a member of AFTRA and SAG.
