My career in a few words ...

Laurence Lo Presti - cours de chant.jpg

My name is Laurence Lo Presti.

I was born on June 8, 1982 in Brussels, Belgium.

My mum, Belgian, and my dad, of Italian origins,

are both musicians as a hobby.

With my brother and sister we used to organize

" family concerts " at home, so many wonderful memories ...

When I was 6 years old, my parents enrolled me in

pre-solfège at the Brussels' Academy of Music

and the Da Capo Children's Choir .

When people asked me what I wanted do when I grew up

I always answered: "the professional singer" .

It has always been obvious for me...

From my 11th birthday I started to take singing lessons at the academy of music with my first teacher, Claudine Arnaud, who also introduced me to the basics of

breathing and sophrology .

I also took piano and theater lessons .

At 16, I reached very high notes, and my teacher arranged for my voice to be recorded in an "endoscopic" version for clinical studies.

This is the time of my first concerts and recitals at the Academy of Music

and at school events; at the same time I was also singing and playing piano in church.

Laurence Lo Presti - Voices of Europe 2.

"Voices of Europe 2000"

was a very important event in my musical journey.

as I was one of the 10 young Belgians selected for an

international tour in 8 European countries.

Between 2000 and 2011, under the stage name of Lauryn Gaet,

I have more than 200 concerts to my credit, in 11 different countries.

I sing both as a soloist and as a second voices or in choirs

for other artists.

I have a vast repertoire of styles that evolve over the course of my

collaborations (opera, French, English and Italian songs, techno,

trance, symphonic metal, movie music, rap, jazz & piano bar).

Moreover, 5 Belgian, French and Swiss artists invited me to sing

on their albums.

I won 8 competition prizes and sung in different choirs.  

I also did television and radio presenter.

 

A career full of beautiful encounters and wonderful memories ...

Laurence Lo Presti - Natagonya - Oceans

In 2011 I graduated as a Nature-Guide (CNB - Belgium) and the theme of nature - which was already very important to me - will become even more important.
From that moment on, I orient my singing and my texts towards nature, its beauty and its preservation.
The film "Home" by Yann Arthus-Bertrand, released around this period, inspires me the vocals and the text of "Dying world".  (Music Factor23 - Production Holophonix).  A video clip is shot in London.

Just after I released a personal project "Natagonya" with the album "Oceans die" (samples available above).

From 2012 to 2017, I focused on types of arts.

I have participated in painting exhibitions (pastel artists from Belgium),

and obtained MUAH degrees (make-up artist and hairstylist)

at De schoonheidsshool Antwerp.

Trace ton chemin et Laurence Lo Presti -

In 2017, I met Maggy from Myriad Voice

who motivated me to give singing and impro-theater lessons

in a Cultural Center, and in a Center for young people.

At the same time, I organized singing and theater lessons near my house.

I graduated in music therapy with Rachida Drissi and Yves Michaux,

which I completed with a specific training on rhythm

and support for disabled people.

Then I became a Reiki practitioner and a "positive coach".

I moved from being  a singing and competition's coach to doing more

"open voice and articulation" for my students, and to helping people

with speech impairments  or disabilities, sometimes caused

by burn-out or a disease that altered their voice.

With this experience, singing takes on a whole new dimension for me:

personal development and being centered;

self-confidence and fulfillment!

"I'm a luthier; I build and repair voices..."

 

March 2020: first Covid quarantine in Belgium and sudden stop

of all my activities as a teacher, coach and therapist.

I focus on myself, I start singing during my self-healing

sessions and I feel extremely deep and self-healing vibrations.

This is how my new project was born,like a ray of sunshine

in a world that has suddenly become dark ...
