By the time Laura Pfleuger got her first guitar at the age of 15, she had already spent eight years singing in musicals, talent shows, and other low-key venues. But by the end of her senior year in high school she was a seasoned performer with weekly appearances at a local country club and a slew of coffee shops. Pfleuger, currently a music business major at Nazareth College, may be placed in the acoustic-country category by most, but her sweetly sullen vocal approach and beyond-her-age lyrics could easily cast her into the infinitely deeper sea of indie-pop.
Laura Pfleuger performs Saturday, April 27, 6 p.m. at Lovin' Cup, 300 Park Point Drive Suite #101. Free. lovincup.com.
