Gwen Laster

About Gwen Laster: Composer/Recording Artist/Author
Gwen's upbringing in Urban and Classical music was inspired by her mother's love for Rhythm and Blues and her Detroit high school orchestra teacher Anderson White. Andy taught teaching traditional Orchestral and Chamber music repertoire and introduced Gwen to the Electric Violin during her school orchestra rehearsal. His organic approach to Improvisation was to point, then shout "Stand up, Take a Solo".
After earning her BM and MM from the University of Michigan School of Music, Gwen relocated to New York City. She emerged herself in recording as a Solo Artist, recording, touring and collaborating with other artists, playing Broadway shows, Jazz clubs, Traditional and Non Traditional Chamber Ensembles and Teaching Improvisation to String Players. She has recorded two Solo recordings "Sneak Preview"(EP) and "I Hear You Smiling" of original compositions and arrangements. The track "Send Love to the Equation" from the "Smiling" CD was selected for a very successful radio airplay campaign on AC Radio throughout the mid west. Her next recording "The Gameboard" will be released in January 2011. This music is based on Steve Rother's book "Re-member". The compositions are a Global Fusion concept using Western and Non Western strings, percussion and electronics. Gwen's first instructional book for violin; Music for the Creative String Player" available March 1, 2010 at www.gwenlaster.com
