Laura Veirs (born Laura Pauline Veirs on 24 October 1973 in Colorado Springs, Colorado) is an American singer-songwriter. Veirs has said that she didn't seriously listen to music until she was in her 20s; instead, she just heard what was in her environment. In November 2011, Veirs released the album Tumble Bee: Laura Veirs Sings Folk Songs For Children. The album presents mostly traditional songs, and features an array of guest musicians, including Colin Meloy, Jim James, and Bela Fleck. The album won a Parents' Choice Award in 2012. In September 2012 her first feature film soundtrack was released: Hello I Must Be Going.

Laura Veirs’ music has always had a sweetly melodic, lullaby quality, so gearing an album toward children seems fitting for this singer/songwriter. The younger set won’t be the only ones smitten by this charming collection of mostly traditional American folk songs. Tumble Bee was recorded by Veirs’ husband, esteemed producer and musician Tucker Martine, and it includes guest appearances by Bela Fleck, Brian Blade, My Morning Jacket’s Jim James, and Colin Meloy of The Decemberists

Of course Oregon's Laura Veirs is not the first artist to record a children's record – arguably 1999's Lead Belly Sings for Children (and amalgamation of his Negro Folk Songs for Young People from 1960 and Play Parties in Song and Dance from 1941) paved the way, but it's not so very long since the Songs for the Young at. Heart compilation which saw contributions from Jarvis Cocker, Cerys Matthews and Stuart Staples amongst many, as well as Mick Cooke of Belle & Sebastian's Colours Are Brighter, and Saint Etienne's Up the Wooden Hills EP. But Veirs' offeri.
