As Little Scream, Laurel Sprengelmeyer chiefly employs her voice. But the singer-songwriter is also an accomplished pianist, guitarist and violin player, and she uses this multi-instrumental power to beef up the sonic landscape for her lyrical storytelling style. Her songs twist freely, going from folk-inspired angles to experimental territory and back to a pop base in one fell swoop. An Iowa native, Sprengelmeyer found a perfect enclave for her powerfully nimble voice in the Montreal music scene, collaborating with the likes of Stars and Arcade Fire, both on stage and in the studio. A visual artist as well, Sprengelmeyer is also the hand behind the visually rich oil painting on the cover of her debut, 2011's The Golden Record.
