Hey there, I’m Laura — a storyteller and recovering music industry entrepreneur who loves a good greeting card.


BIO:

Whether you believe in Cosmic DNA or the MBTI Personality Test, Laura Goldfarb Falls is truly an enthusiastic innovator, always seeing new possibilities around her. Imaginative, insightful, playful, and empathetic, this Sagittarius woman and ENFP is guided by transparency, curiosity, connection, and the desire to tell a really good story. 

Laura celebrates over 10 years as an entrepreneur in the music industry. In 2009 she founded Red Boot PR, a music marketing and public relations agency recognized as an ally for independent artists. Red Boot was awarded “Best PR For Indie Artists” by Examiner.com in 2014, and received the 2016 Best of Venice Award in Media & Entertainment.

In 2017, Laura partnered with artist MILCK to release her single "Quiet." Following the first Women’s March on Washington, “Quiet” went viral; NPR called it the "unofficial anthem” of the movement. Together, Laura and MILCK rode the viral wave, maximizing the independent artist’s exposure with features in Vanity Fair and Entertainment Weekly, and partnerships with the ACLU, Women In The World Summit, and fashion designer Rebecca Minkoff. MILCK then signed with Atlantic Records, and Laura was hired by the label as an independent contractor to lead the artist's social impact and philanthropic endeavors, including a partnership with Revolutions Per Minute to launch the #ICantKeepQuiet Fund.  

In 2019, Laura wrapped up 13 years as the writer, producer and host of "Jam Session," a weekly music podcast on BTRtoday. Jam Session was one of only five female-hosted shows that reported to the Relix/Jambands Radio Chart, and it brought Laura to major music festivals like Bonnaroo, High Sierra, and Telluride Blues & Brews as official radio support. Laura’s episodes of Jam Session are still available on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Play Music and Tune In.

Laura’s worn additional hats including that of artist manager, tour manager, journalist and songwriter. As a registered songwriter with BMI, Laura collaborates with artists to write songs for film and television. Some of her notable placements include the 2016 film starring Jessica Chastain, Miss Sloane, and on the USA Network's SUITS.

Throughout her career, Laura has advocated for education, collaboration and mentorship in the music industry. She independently offers small group and one-on-one mentor sessions for young or aspiring music industry professionals, and independent artists and their teams. For many years, she’s been an official speaker and mentor at the SXSW Music Conference and Festival. Laura’s been featured on Hypebot, TuneCore, Bridge The Atlantic, and Examiner.com’s “Women In Entertainment” series. In 2017, she was given the LA Music Critic Icon Award

Laura is also a certified meditation teacher. She completed a 200-hour teacher training under Charlie Knoles of the Veda Center in 2018. The course certifies her to teach various meditation techniques in Present Moment Awareness, Calm Focus, Energized Body and Mind, and Transcendence/Self Discovery, considered the four main categories of meditative experience. In the summer of 2019 she completed a 4-month program on Vedic Meditation Mastery, focused on Vedic philosophy, advanced meditation techniques, and integration of spiritual experience with modern philosophy and science.
