Lori has been a singer, songwriter and recording artist since the 1990’s. Her songs were written from a place of great faith as she sought healing from a congenital heart condition. Lori started singing with her Church worship team in local services, various conferences and outreach.
More recently, Lori sings positive music in coffee houses and outreach with her good friend and fellow musician, Lynn Nadeau. As an acoustic duet, they are “Blanket Forte’.” Named, in fun, after they spent an afternoon in a blanket fort to prepare for their first coffee house performance.
Lori’s first original full length CD entitled, “Rise Above”, was recorded in 2002. As a self published artist, Lori quickly sold her CD’s on the eastern coast, from Canada to Florida. She also made her way into Song Discovery’s Worship Magazine and on Puerto Rico radio after they contacted her to seek permission to play it on air. Additionally, her music has been featured on local television channels and Radio.
In 2007 Lori recorded her second CD entitled “So Blessed”. This original full length work was inspired by Lori’s grateful heart for another chance at life. This was her positive response through many challenges. In her commanding style, she sings a message in each work. One of the songs, “I Am Risen With Christ”, was recorded with the Mount Zion Christian Schools Worship Team. This added to their experience as up and coming worship leaders.
