DO NOT MISS SheROCKS in DC & NY!
A lifelong New Yorker and a lifetime lover of all things beautiful, Soleil Laurent, has a mission of creating goodness through love and light. Soleil grew up in an exceptionally musical family. From a very early age she excelled in all the creative activities that she took part in. Soleil began playing the guitar at the age of 17. It has always been evident from the smile on her face that Soleil is very passionate about music.
She attended Berklee College of Music in Boston and has performed for notable musical institutions including: Bowery Ballroom, Irving Plaza, Gramercy Theatre, Brooklyn Academy of Music, Blue Notes, Iguana Club, DROM, Knitting Factory, SOBs “Sounds of Brazil”, Le Poisson Rouge, amongst others.
Traveling to places such as Rwanda, Africa, Los Angeles CA, Austin TX, Chicago IL, Minneapolis MN, Raleigh NC, Bozeman MT, Seattle WA, Louisville KY, Tempe AZ, and Kalamazoo MI, Soleil is blessed to have been able to travel the world through her musical career.
Her biggest moment was performing over a crowd of thousands in Rwanda, Africa for Kigali Up. She was sponsored and invited by the US Embassy In Kigali to headline at the annual KigaliUp Festival 2017 in Rwanda, Africa. She has performed there 3 years in a row. Soleil believes strongly in the art of engagement and giving back to the community.
She is also actively involved with the Life for the World School and Orphanage in Haiti, home to 220 children. With her focus to instill conscious messages within her music, Soleil believes that the art of self-love and belief, can and will create a peaceful existence through the world. In its current state of such hardship through violence, challenges through self-acceptance, and being unapologetically you, songs such as “I can’t Breathe,” “America,” “Boss,” and “Free” are just a few of the moving interludes that Soleil has written.
Soleil was also recently featured in the HBO Documentary “This Is Me”, which was screened at the New York Latino Film Festival in August of 2018.
