Singer-songwriters and guitarists Laura B. Whitmore, Ali Handal and Laura Clapp have joined forces to launch She 3, an East Coast tour featuring these three talented musicians.

“We thought it would be a great idea to partner,” said L.A.-based artist, Ali Handal. “We will support each other with harmonies and instrumental contributions as we each share our own music in an in-the-round performance. We’re excited about the energy we’ll share in this fun, fast-paced format.”

Featuring earnest and relatable lyrics, Boston-based singer-songwriter, Laura B. Whitmore, vibrantly explores love, loss, and sense of self. Armed with an acoustic guitar, Whitmore can be equally sweet and raucous, with songs ranging from traditional singer-songwriter fare to blues, rock and even gospel. As a music industry marketer, journalist, founder of the Women’s International Music Network, and producer of the She Rocks Awards and the BackStory series for AOL, she is hooked in to the music industry at many levels. Formerly a resident of New York and San Francisco, Laura has fans and connections all over the country. She hosts a house concert series in her home in Needham, Mass., called Acoustic Kitchen.

L.A.-based singer-songwriter, Ali Handal, holds her own among the ranks of fierce female performing singer-songwriters. She sets the stage ablaze with groove-heavy songs, fiery guitar passages and soulful lyrics delivered by her powerhouse voice. Music Connection magazine describes her as “earthy, natural, real and loaded with talent….” Handal’s songs have been featured in numerous films and hit shows like Sex and the City, Dawson’s Creek and iCarly. She’s toured Australia, Japan and beyond, provided backing vocals for Neil Young, and shared the stage with songwriting legend Paul Williams as his featured vocalist. Handal penned Guitar for Girls (Hal Leonard), a guitar method book and CD brimming with advice for aspiring musicians. Visit www.AliHandal.com for more information.

Laura Clapp grew up in New England. She’s brash, she’s honest and she’s happy to be here. Put these things together and you get an artist who thrives on love, excitement and a passion for life, and who is not afraid to tell it like it is. After moving to Nashville as a Berklee College of Music graduate in 2001, Clapp quickly befriended some of Music City’s best, and it wasn’t long before she was singing for a living. This led to countless demo sessions, a stint as a product specialist for Victoria-based TC-Helicon, and an incredible journey as backing vocalist for ‘80s synth legend, Howard Jones.
